welling up

I couldn't be MORE happy for Stellan. Not even if I tried.

And this song has been on my mind this morning. Not sure why, but it is a goodie. There are several verses here that I had not heard before.

I Will Arise (Hart/Walker)

Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and pow’r.

Refrain:
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms.

Come, ye thirsty, come, and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.

Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.

View Him prostrate in the garden;
On the ground your Maker lies;
On the bloody tree behold Him;
Sinner, will this not suffice?

Lo! th’ incarnate God ascended,
Pleads the merit of His blood:
Venture on Him, venture wholly,
Let no other trust intrude.

Let not conscience make you linger,
Not of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.

So I was looking and looking and couldn't find a version on YouTube that was basic. So here is basic. Please excuse my gravely moments. I blame it on the elephant sitting on my chest.

I hadn't heard all of the verses either. Thanks for that! I too am PSYCHED for Stellan and his mommy Jennifer to be able to finally go home. What an answer to prayer!
