Arise, come ye forth, and forever break the chain,
That long had oppressed you with sorrow and pain;
Arise, come ye forth, hear the blessèd Lord’s command,
And He Himself will guide you with a strong, strong hand.

Refrain

Come forth, come forth, and shout the jubilee,
Come forth, come forth, the Lord will make you free;
Come forth from your bonds, hear the blessèd Lord’s command,
And He Himself will guide you with a strong, strong hand.

Arise, come ye forth; will ye spend your life for naught,
When Jesus who loves you a ransom has bought?
The price of His blood, O receive it while you may;
Behold the promised time is now; O come away.

Refrain

Arise, come ye forth, and be slaves to sin no more,
How oft your deliv’rer has called you before;
Come forth from your bonds, and your liberty receive,
Your willing hearts to Jesus give; repent, believe.

Refrain
