Verse 1Arise, my soul, arise, shake off your guilty fears The bleeding sacrifice on my behalf appears Before the throne my surety stands; before the throne my surety stands My name is written on His hands
Verse 2 He ever lives above for me to intercede His all redeeming love, His precious blood to plead His blood atoned for every race; His blood atoned for every race And sprinkles now the throne of grace
Chorus O my soul, arise, behold the risen Christ Your Great High Priest, your spotless sacrifice O my soul, arise, God owns you as His child Shake off your guilty fears; my soul, arise
Verse 3 Five bleeding wounds He bears, received on Calvary They pour effectual prayers; they strongly plead for me: “Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry; “Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry “Don’t let that ransomed sinner die!”
Verse 4 My God is reconciled, His pardoning voice I hear He owns me as His child, I can no longer fear With confidence I now draw nigh; With confidence I now draw nigh And “Father, Abba, Father,” cry
