I will rise and seek my God,
And bowed down beneath my load,
Lay all my sins before Him;
Then He will wash my soul from sin,
And put a new heart me within,
And teach me to adore Him.
O ye that fain would find the joy –
The only one that wants alloy –
Which never is deceiving;
Come to the Well of Life with me
And drink, as it is proffered, free,
The gospel draught receiving.
I come to Christ because I know
The very worst are called to go;
And when in faith I find Him,
I’ll walk in Him, and lean on Him,
Because I cannot move a limb
Until He say: “Unbind him”.
