I Will Arise and Go to Jesus (Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing)
Words: Robert Robinson
Music: Restoration | From The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion by William Walker
This version combines Robert Robinson’s “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” with the anonymous chorus “I Will Arise and Go to Jesus.”

1. I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms,
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
Oh! there are ten thousand charms.

2. Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above,
Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.

3. Come, thou fount of ev’ry blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace,
Streams of mercy never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.

4. I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms,
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
Oh! there are ten thousand charms.
