Come up my soul, in Christ abide
Within the Rock of Ages hide.
He is Thy strength and Thine abode,
Thy refuge is almighty God.
Rise up, O soul, Thy sin confess
That thou in Jesus Christ may rest,
Put off the flesh and all its ways
And don Christ’s robes throughout thy days.
Be gone old man and flee away,
This day is God’s, to Him I pray;
His pow’r is greater than thine own
And I will live before His throne.
O Lord come down and meet with me
Thy presence and Thy strength I’d see,
Fix Thou my eyes on things above
And help me praise Thee for Thy love.
