2 Hallelujah! they cry,
To the King of the sky,
To the great everlasting I AM;
To the Lamb that was slain,
And liveth again;
Hallelujah to God and the Lamb

3 The Lamb on the throne,
Lo! He dwells with his own,
And to rivers of pleasure He leads;
With his mercy's full blaze,
With the sight of his face,
Our beatified spirits He feeds.

4 Our foreheads proclaim
His ineffable name,
Our bodies his glory display;
A day without night,
We feast in his sight,
And eternity seems as a day !

SPECIAL OCCASIONS.

232.

Morning.

1 Awake, my soul, and with the sun,
Thy daily stage of duty run;
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise,
To pay thy morning sacrifice.

2 Thy precious time mispent, redeem;
Each present day, thy last esteem;
Improve thy talent with due care;
For the great day thyself prepare.

3 In conversation be sincere;
Keep conscience, as the noon-tide, clear;
Think how the all-seeing God thy ways,
And all thy secret thoughts, surveys.

4 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart,
And with the angels bear thy part;
Who all night long, unwearied sing
High praise to the Eternal King.

5 Awake, awake, ye heavenly choir;
May your devotion me inspire,
That I, like you, my age may spend,
Like you, may on my God attend.
