O My Soul, Arise

[Verse 1]

Arise, 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
