Father, To Thee I Lift Mine Eyes,
My Longing Eyes, And Restless Heart;
Before The Morning Watch I Rise,
And Wait To Taste How Good Thou Art,
To Obtain The Grace I Humbly Claim,
The Saving Power Of Jesu’s Name.

This Slumber From My Soul O Shake!
Warn By Thy Spirit’s Inward Call;
Let Me To Righteousness Awake,
And Pray That I No More May Fall,
Or Give To Sin Or Satan Place,
But Walk In All Thy Righteous Ways.

O Wouldst Thou, Lord, Thy Servant Guard,
‘Gainst Every Known Or Secret Foe!
A Mind For All Assaults Prepared,
A Sober, Vigilant Mind Bestow,
Ever Apprized Of Danger Nigh,
And When To Fight, And When To Fly.

O Never Suffer Me To Sleep
Secure Within The Verge Of Hell!
But Still My Watchful Spirit Keep
In Lowly Awe And Loving Zeal;
And Bless Me With A Godly Fear,
And Plant That Guardian-Angel Here.

Attended By The Sacred Dread,
And Wise From Evil To Depart,
Let Me From Strength To Strength Proceed,
And Rise To Purity Of Heart;
Through All The Paths Of Duty Move,
From Humble Faith To Perfect Love.
