Chorus:
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 whiter than snow my spirit shall be.

Give me again the joy of your help;
Now open my lips, your praise I will sing.

Happy are they forgiven by God,
Their sins blotted out, their guilt is no more.
