awaken the dawn

      Father, awaken my soul, that I, too, might awaken the dawn.

“Forbid that I should walk through Thy beautiful world with unseeing eyes. . . . Forbid that, when all Thy creatures are greeting the morning with songs and shouts of joy, I alone should wear a dull and sullen face. . . .” John Baillie

“I will sing . . . with all my soul. I will awaken the dawn. . . .” Psalm 108:1-2
