"ARISE, ARISE, AND SHINE"            


Don Fortner


(Tune: Stand Up and Bless The Lord  #33 SM)


"Arise, arise, and shine,"

I hear my Savior call.

I sleep, my heart wakes within.

I hear, I hear His call!


But I cannot arise.

My soul I cannot lift.

Savior, if I arise and shine,

It must be by your gift.


Draw, my Beloved, draw

And I will run to you.

Put now Your hand into my heart.

Cause me to come to You.


Arisen, now I come.

Embrace my soul anew.

Your banner of love spread o'er me.

And bind my heart to You!
