Awake, Oh Sleeping Child

Recommended Posts

I just wrote a hymn. I haven't yet written music for it, but here is the text.

Ye children of God, follow His way!
Walk in the light, be not led astray.
Be you His hands, do His righteous will,
sing with your hearts, with the Spirit be filled.

Awake, oh sleeping child,
in tenderness, loving and mild.
Discern His will ever true
let His Light shine on you.

Let wrong and greed not be found in your midst,
let your lives speak, and do not idly sit.
Participate not in the deeds of the dark
instead let His light shine, let Him be your ark.

Awake, oh sleeping child,
in tenderness, loving and mild.
Discern His will ever true
let His Light shine on you.

Take care how you walk in the name of His son,
for it is your duty that His will be done.
The Kingdom within you bring forth to the Earth,
only then can you know what His glory is worth.

Awake, oh sleeping child,
in tenderness, loving and mild.
Discern His will ever true
let His Light shine on you.
