BEHOLD THE MAN




Arise, my soul, arise;
shake off thy guilty fears;
The bleeding sacrifice
in my behalf appears:
|: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, :|
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, :|
“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, :|
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, :|
And “Father, Abba, Father,” cry.


---Alternative verses---


Arise, my soul, arise,
Shake off thy guilty fears,
The bleeding sacrifice
In my behalf appears;
Before the throne my Saviour stands;
My name is written on his hands.


He ever lives above,
For me to intercede;
With his redeeming love,
His precious blood to plead;
His blood was shed for all our race,
And sprinkles now the throne of grace.


Five bleeding wounds he bears,
Received on Calvary;
They pour effectual pray’rs,
They strongly speak for me;
Forgive him, O forgive! they cry,
Nor let that ransom’d sinner die!


To God I’m reconciled,
His pardoning voice I hear,
He owns me for his child,
I can no longer fear;
With confidence I now draw nigh,
And Father, Abba Father! cry.
