ARISE, my soul, arise, Thy

By A Collection of Hymns

      2-6s & 4-7s.
      1 ARISE, my soul, arise,
      Thy Saviour's sacrifice!
      All the names that love could find,
      All the forms that love could take,
      Jesus in himself hath joined,
      Thee, my soul, his own to make.

      2 Equal with God most high,
      He laid his glory by;
      He, the eternal God, was born,
      Man with men he deigned to appear;
      Object of his creatures' scorn,
      Pleased a servant's form to wear.

      3 Hail! everlasting Lord,
      Divine, incarnate Word!
      Thee let all my powers confess,
      Thee my latest breath proclaim;
      Help, ye angel-choirs, to bless,
      Shout the loved Immanuel's name!

      4 Fruit of a virgin's womb,
      The promised blessing's come;
      Christ, the fathers' hope of old,
      Christ, the woman's conquering Seed,
      Christ, the Saviour long foretold,
      Born to bruise the serpent's head.

      5 Jesus, to thee I bow,
      The Almighty's Fellow thou!
      Thou, the Father's only Son!
      Pleased he ever is in thee;
      Just and holy thou alone,
      Full of grace and truth for me.
