Christ My Song - 1063

Awake, my heart; arise, my tongue - Spiritual apparel
(Isaac Watts/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Spiritual apparel.

Isaiah 61,10.

1. Awake, my heart; arise, my tongue,
  prepare a tuneful voice;
in God, the life of all my joys,
  aloud will I rejoice.

2. 'Tis he adorned my naked soul,
  and made salvation mine;
upon a poor, polluted worm
  he makes his graces shine.

3. And lest the shadow of a spot
  should on my soul be found,
he took the robe the Saviour wrought,
  and cast it all around.

4. How far the heavenly robe exceeds
  what earthly princes wear!
These ornaments, how bright they shine!
  How white the garments are!

5. The Spirit wrought my faith, and love,
  and hope, and every grace;
but Jesus spent his life to work
  the robe of righteousness.

6. Strangely, my soul, art thou arrayed
  by the great Sacred Three!
In sweetest harmony of praise
  let all thy powers agree.

Isaac Watts, Hymns and Spiritual Songs, Book 1, Hymn 20.
