826 (H.M.) Charles Wesley

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.

Five bleeding wounds he bears;

Received on Calvary;

They pour effectual pray'rs,

They strongly plead for me:

“Forgive him, O forgive,” they cry,

“Nor let the ransomed sinner die.”

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.

Now I am reconciled;

His pard'ning voice I hear:

He owns me for a child;

I can no longer fear:

With confidence I now draw nigh,

And, “Father, Abba, Father,” cry.
