Awake My Soul

Embrace the new day

With joy celebrating His love

As you stretch from your slumber

And walk towards Him

With His beauty in your heart

Radiating peace from within

And love to all always


A little measure at a time

Until your world is lighted up

With its rays, as the sun

Lights up the whole world

When it comes out of its chamber

To run its course day after day

From one end to another


Awake my soul, awake

To the battle before you

And hold fast unto Him

Who will fight it for you

Awake dressed in His armor

In readiness to follow Him

And victory will be known


Awake to the signs of time

Hold securely to the faith

And redemption will come

When heaven will open its door

For the King of glory

To appear with a shout

And His trumpet’s sound!


The day and hour are unknown

But His promise still stands

With certainty He will come

To fulfill His promise to you

Awake my soul, awake

Girded with faith and love

To meet your Bridegroom


Press on to the finish line

Through the darkness

And the light of the day

With enduring faith

Until you name you hear

And time envelops you

In the arms of eternity!

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
