Awake, my soul, and rise

Awake, my soul, and rise
amazed, as there you see
upon a cross the Saviour God
become a curse for me.

2. How gloriously fulfilled
is God’s most ancient plan,
conceived in his eternal mind
before the world began.

3. Here depths of wisdom shine,
which angels cannot trace;
the highest rank of heaven’s host
still wonder at such grace.

4. Here free salvation reigns,
and triumphs through the cross,
and ever stands to rescue us
from everlasting loss.

5. Now hell, in all its strength,
its rage and boasted charms,
can never snatch a wandering sheep
from Jesus’ mighty arms.
