Awaken the Dawn
I am in the midst of lions;
I lie among ravenous beasts
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.
They spread a net for my feet - I was bowed down in distress.
They dug a pit in my path - but they have fallen into it themselves.
My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make music.
Awake, my soul!
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.
