ARISE, my soul, arise,

Shake off thy guilty fears,

The bleeding Sacrifice

In my behalf appears;

Before the throne my Surety stands,

My name is written on his hands.

He ever lives above,

For me to intercede;

His all-redeeming love,

His precious blood, to plead;

His blood atoned for all our race,

And sprinkles now the throne of grace.

Five bleeding wounds he bears,

Received on Calvary;

They pour effectual prayers,

They strongly speak for me;

"Forgive him, O forgive," they cry,

"Nor let that ransomed sinner die!"

The Father hears him pray,

His dear Anointed one:

He cannot turn away

The presence of his Son:

His Spirit answers to the blood,

And tells me I am born of God.

My God is reconciled,

His pard'ning voice I hear:

He owns me for his child,

I can no longer fear;

With confidence I now draw nigh,

And Father, Abba Father, cry.
