Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

720. Take Up Your Bed and Walk

1 O ye sick and helpless souls, Jesus speaks to you,
If you wish to be made whole, He tells you what to do—
Obey His word just as you hear it,
Accept His truth and Holy Spirit,
Arise, take up your bed, take up your bed and walk.

Refrain:
Arise, take up your bed, take up your bed and walk,
Arise, take up your bed, take up your bed and walk;
If you believe, ’tis Jesus talking,
Take up your bed and just keep walking,
Arise, take up your bed, take up your bed and walk.

2 Jesus speaks, He’s talking still, hear, ye deaf and blind;
He can cure your many ills of body, soul, and mind;
If you would know the truth about Him,
Look up by faith and do not doubt Him,
Arise, take up your bed, take up your bed and walk. [Refrain]

3 Doctor Jesus, just the same today as long ago;
Healing waters, in His name as living waters flow;
Now is your time, don’t wait one minute,
Here is the pool, just step right in it,
Arise, take up your bed, take up your bed and walk. [Refrain]
