Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

I Will Arise and Go

Come unto me, the Savior is pleading

Author: Maud Frazer Jackson
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 "Come unto Me," the Savior is pleading,
"Weary with sin and woe;"
I cannot stay, His kind voice unheeding,
I will arise and go.

I will arise, I will arise,
I will arise and go;
Out on the way the Father will meet me,
I will arise and go.

2 Oh, can it be that still there is pardon,
Tho' I have grieved Him so?
Yes, for His blood was shed to save sinners,
I will arise and go. [Chorus]

3 Weary am I, for long have I struggled,
Striving to down he foe;
Only the grace of Jesus can save me,
I will arise and go. [Chorus]

4 I will arise, the Savior will help me,
Strength for my need bestow;
Home to the Father's infinite mercy,
I will arise and go. [Chorus]

5 Why should I stay where ever my spirit
Hunger and thirst must know;
There is for me a feast now awaiting,
I will arise and go. [Chorus]
