Arise, My Soul, Arise

John Wesley, author of over 6,500 hymn texts, wrote a power hymn that focuses on Christ’s satisfactory work on the cross and His continued work of mediation in heaven. “Arise, My Soul, Arise,” published in 1742, portrays Christ as Sacrifice (1), Intercessor (2), Advocate (3), and Redeemer (4). Christ is our all-sufficient Savior, who brings us eternal fellowship with God. Love Him and worship Him.

1. Arise, my soul, arise; Shake off the guilty fears; The bleeding Sacrifice In my behalf appears: Before the throne my Surety stands, 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, 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 pray'rs, They strongly plead for me: "Forgive him, O forgive, " they cry, "Forgive him, O forgive, " they cry, "Nor let that ransomed sinner die!"

4. My God is reconciled; His pard'ning voice I hear; He owns me for His child; I can no longer fear; With confidence I now draw nigh, With confidence I now draw nigh, And, "Father, Abba, Father, " cry.
