Five bleeding wounds He bears

Arise, my soul, arise; shake off thy guilty fears;The bleeding sacrifice in my behalf appears:Before the throne my surety stands,Before the throne my surety stands,My name is written on His hands.

He ever lives above, for me to intercede;His all redeeming love, His precious blood, to plead:His blood atoned for all our race,His blood atoned for all our race,And sprinkles now the throne of grace.

Five bleeding wounds He bears; received on Calvary;They pour effectual prayers; they strongly plead for me:???Forgive him, O forgive,??? they cry,???Forgive him, O forgive,??? they cry,???Nor let that ransomed sinner die!???

The Father hears Him pray, His dear anointed One;He cannot turn away, the presence of His Son;His Spirit answers to the blood,His Spirit answers to the blood,And tells me I am born of God.

My God is reconciled; His pardoning voice I hear;He owns me for His child; I can no longer fear:With confidence I now draw nigh,With confidence I now draw nigh,And ???Father, Abba, Father,??? cry.

"Arise, My Soul, Arise" by Charles Wes??ley, Hymns and Sac??red Po??ems, 1742.
