    WHEN I AWAKE
                                Si-

    Mi-                  Si-
C.  Listen,O Lord, to my prayer;
         Mi-                    Si- Sol
    be attentive, O Lord, to my cry;
                   Fa#
    give ear to my plea:
       Sol                       Fa#
    my lips do not betray you, O Lord;
         Sol                       Fa#
    from you I understand sentence comes,
                  Mi-                          Fa# 
    let your eyes see, let your eyes see righteousness.

    Mi-               Si-
C.  Search, O God, my heart;
    Mi-                   Si- Sol
    search me at night, O Lord.
                             Fa#
    Test me in the crucible, test me in the crucible,
                Sol                           Fa#
    because you know there is no malice in me,
       Sol                         Fa#
    my mouth does not speak as men do,
    Mi-                          Fa# 
    Because I have kept your Word,
            Sol                   Fa#
    I have avoided the way of the violent one;
                  Sol             Fa#
    in your way I have guided my steps,
    Mi-                                 Fa# 
    and I will not stumble, I will not stumble.

    Mi-             Si-
C.  To you I cry, O Lord, answer me,
    Mi-              Si-         Sol
    Give ear, listen to my voice,
                                Fa#
    show me the wonders of your love,
            Sol                              Fa#
    for you save whoever commends himself to you,
            Sol                              Fa#
    for you help whoever leans on your right hand;
    Mi-                  Fa# 
    as the apple of your eye guard me,
    Mi-                   Fa# 
    in the shadow of your wings hide me,
    Sol                Fa#
    look! they want to kill me!

    Mi-                                    Si-
C.  Look at them, they are closed in their pride,
          Mi-                                 Si-
    they speak through the arrogance of their mouths;
                               Fa#
    they come towards me, they come towards me!
    Sol        Fa#
    Help me, O Lord!
    Sol                          Fa#
    Free me from the men of this world,
             Mi-                          Fa#
    from the men who believe only in this life.
    Sol                          Fa#  
    Fill them with your goods, O Lord;
    Mi-
    because when I awake, because when I awake,
                 Sol                    Fa#  
    I'll be satisfied with your face, O Lord.
