I Will Arise
from the singing of Rock Creek on FSI-86
Chorus: I will arise and go to Jesus;
He will embrace me in his arms.
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms.
Come, thou font of every blessing,
Move my heart to sing thy praise.
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious songs,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Here's the Mount; I'm fixed upon it
Songs of Thy redeeming love.
Here I'll raise my songs in praise;
Hither, by Thy help, I'm bound.
And I pray, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
