I will arise and seek my God,
And, bowed down beneath my load,

I will arise 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.”
