Oh to gently wake,

When dawn is on the morn.

And break from sleep in soft arise,

From the darkness of forlorn.

To feel the lightness of your Son

Invade this wanting soul.

And the prickle of new life

Into my spirit flow.

Twill be, one day, my promise too,

Just as my Savior did

To rise up fresh as morning's dew

Transformed with gentle grace and sin forever hid.
