1 In the arms of faith let me rise,
And be closer drawn to Thee;
Oh, transport me to brighter skies,
Let my faith still stronger be.

Refrain:
Let me rise, let me rise,
In the arms of faith let me rise;
Let me rise, let me rise,
In the arms of faith let me rise.

2 In the arms of faith let me rise,
For Thy loveliness to see;
Where the light of love never dies,
Let my faith still winging be. [Refrain]

3 In the arms of faith let me rise,
Rise above all earth’s remorse,
Rise to meet Thee saved in the skies
Thro’ the blood of the cross. [Refrain]
