ARISE, MY SOUL, BE GONE ALL FEARS
(Tune: O For A Thousand Tongues #46 CM)
Arise, my soul, be gone all fears,
I am a child of God!
Lean hard upon His mighty arm
He is the faithful Lord.
Though troubles overwhelm my soul
And break my heart with pain,
My God is my Defender still -
He will my cause maintain!
The way is rough, the tempter strong,
And I am weak and frail;
But Jesus is my Refuge, and
His strength will never fail.
Though earthly joys all flee away
And sorrows multiply,
Yet, Christ the Lord my Portion is -
He will my needs supply!
The Spirit is my Comforter,
The Seal of covenant grace.
He seals to me the love of God
And floods my soul with grace.
With such a God, and Savior, and
With such a Comforter,
"Arise, my soul," I say," Arise,
Arise, be of good cheer!"
