  A Morning Hymn  

 

Awake my soul! in cheerful mood,
        Thy matin thanks to pay!
The God, who gives thee rest, and food,
        Directs thee to be gay.

The Jewish world was dark, and cold,
        There doubts and fears annoy:
Thy Shepherd to his happier fold
        Brings light, and peace, and joy.

Cease then, O Christian! cease to grieve
        In tempest, or in calm!
Smile on affliction, and receive
        Her consecrated palm!

       - William Hayley
