Wake Up

I am finally emerging from my week of sleep! Admittedly it was still 4pm by the time i was up and dressed today, but at least i have a little energy. As i was trying to get up I remembered the line of a song i like. It goes:

"Awake my soul and celebrate, the wonders of His grace"

I kept saying it to myself in the hope that it may have some effect, and i actually think it has had! How about that. In fact, relatively speaking, i am much more awake now and feel quite inclined to burst into song. ha ha. The lyric was from a song by Eoghan Heaslip. I can't find the words for it, but it was a re-write from a classic old hymn by Charles Wesley. It goes:

"Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer's praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of Thy name.

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
'Tis music in the sinner's ears,
'Tis life, and health, and peace.

He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
He sets the pris'ner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.

Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come;
And leap, ye lame, for joy!"

Good lyrics i think.
