Lyrics

I hear my Savior calling me;
I will arise and go;
Why longer spurn His pardon free?
I will arise and go.
Too long have I remained in sin,
But now I’ll let the Savior in.
A friend to me He long has been;
I will arise and go.

Refrain

I will arise, arise and go,
I will arise, arise and go:
He’ll hear my cry and His blood apply;
I will arise and go.

Yes, unto Him the vilest may;
I will arise and go;
At Jesus’ feet His sins all lay;
I will arise and go.
For Jesus said, Come unto Me,
All who with sin may burdened be,
And I will make you wholly free
;
I will arise and go.

Refrain

Dear Savior, here I bring myself;
I will arise and go;
Just as I am and nothing else;
I will arise and go.
Salvation not thro’ what I’ve done,
But only thro’ the Father’s Son,
The blood of our redeeming One;
I will arise and go.
