I Will Arise

print
Come thou fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing thy grace
Streams of mercy never ceasing
Call forth songs of loudest praise

Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount i’m fixed upon it
Songs of thy redeeming love

I will arise and go to Jesus
He will embrace me in His arms
In the arms of my dear Savior
Oh there are ten thousand charms

Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood

Here I’ll raise my song in praising
Hither by Thy help I’ve come
And I know by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home

I will arise and go to Jesus
He will embrace me in His arms
In the arms of my dear Savior
Oh there are ten thousand charms
