Text (1740, 1742) by John Cennick (1718-1755)


Rise, my soul, adore thy Maker;

Angels praise; join thy lays,

Within them be partaker:

Father, Lord of every spirit,

In Thy might, lead me right,

Through my Saviour’s merit.


O my God, be ever near me,

For Thy rest, for Thy feast,

More and more prepare me.

Still assure me of my calling,

Kept by Thee, let me be

Saved from final falling.


Thou this night wast my Protector;

With me stay, all the day,

Ever my Director.

Holy, holy, holy Giver

Of all good, life and food,

Reign adored for ever.
