2020-05-26 I Will Arise and Go to Jesus

Born in London in 1712, Joseph Hart resisted Christianity while young. To him, the faith made no sense. He even wrote a pamphlet called “The Unreasonableness of Religion.” He criticized the messages of Gospel ministers, including evangelist John Wesley. However, his life changed in 1757 after feeling conviction during a service in the Moravian Chapel, in London.

Driven by his new faith, he began writing hymns. One of the first was “Come Ye Sinners, Poor and Needy.” From his own experience, he understood how many people resist salvation. But he knew that “Jesus ready stands to save” the weak, wounded, sick, and sore. All they had to do was respond.

Today, Jesus calls you to come to Him just as you are. No matter what you have done, or what problems you face, He will welcome you, take away your burdens, forgive your sins, and save your soul.

28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT)

You may know it by one – or both – of the 2 tunes that have been put with Hart’s lyrics…

Come, ye sinners, poor and needy, weak and wounded, sick and sore.
Jesus ready, stands to save you; full of pity, love and power.

I will arise and go to Jesus, He will embrace me in His arms.
In the arms of my dear Saviour, O, 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 ’til 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! The incarnate God ascended; pleads the merit of His blood.
Venture on Him, venture wholly; let no other trust intrude.
