Awaken the Dawn with His Praise!
"My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise.
Awake, my glory!
Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing to You among the nations.
For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens,
And Your truth unto the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Your glory be above all the earth." (Psalm 57:7-11)
He who forms mountains,
And creates the wind,
Who declares to man what his thought is,
And makes the morning darkness,
Who treads the high places of the earth—
The Lord God of hosts is His name." (Amos 4:13)
My heart is steadfast, Praise God, because it is anchored in Christ,
My heart is steadfast, Praise God, because of His Spirit’s work within.
My heart is steadfast, because the Lord of Hosts fights for me.
My heart is steadfast, because His power is made perfect in my weakness.
O how sufficient is His grace! O praise Christ, the Eternal Rock!
For Jesus is faithful. Jesus is true.
Jesus is mighty and perfectly just.
Jesus is merciful, full of compassion.
Jesus, the Friend Who sticks closer than a brother.
Jesus is holy, flawlessly pure
His word is sure and never-failing,
His works are amazing, beyond all compare
O, awaken the dawn with His glorious praise!
We love Him because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19)
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)
