Author: C. Wesley, 1707-1788 Hymnal: Methodist Hymn and Tune Book #94b (1917) Topics: Abba Father Lyrics: 1 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.
2 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.
3 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!"
4 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.
5 My God is reconciled,
His pardoning 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. Tune Title: MILLENNIUM
Arise, my soul, arise
