Lyrics
AWAKE, AWAKE TO LOVE AND WORK
Words by Geoffrey Suddert-Kennedy (1883-1929)

1 A(Fm)wake, awake (Db)to (Eb)love and (Fm)work!
The (Db)lark is in (Bbm)the (Ab)sky;
The (Ab)fields are (Eb)wet (Ab/C)with (Bbm6)diamond (Ab)dew;
The (Fm)worlds a(Bbm6)wake (Eb)to (Fm)cry
Their (Ab)blessings (Eb)on (Fm)the (Eb)Lord of (Cm)life,
As (Fm/Ab)He (Cm)goes (Fm)meek(Eb)ly (Fm)by.

2 Come, let thy voice be one with theirs,
Shout with their shout of praise;
See how the giant sun soars up, Great lord of years and days!
So let the love of Jesus come
And set thy soul ablaze.

3 To give and give, and give again,
What God hath given thee;
To spend thyself nor count the cost;
To serve right gloriously
the God who gave all worlds that are,
and all that are to be.
