Yes I shall arise and
return to my Father!
To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul;
In you, O my God, I place all my trust.
Look down on me, have mercy, O Lord;
Forgive me my sins, behold all my grief.
My heart and soul shall yearn for your face;
Be gracious to me and answer my plea.
Do not withhold your goodness from me;
O Lord, may your love be deep in my soul;
To you I pray; have pity on me;
My God, I have sinned against your great love.
Mercy, I cry, O Lord, wash me clean;
And wither than snow my spirit shall be.
Give me again the joy of your help;
Now open my lips, your praise I will sing.
Happy is he, forgiven by God;
His sins blotted out, his guilt is no more.
Yes, I Shall Arise And Return To My Father Lyrics
