Rise Up!

He calls us out of the grave

He calls us out of the chains

Whatever it is that holds you down

God’s gonna free you right now

Rise up!

Dry bones

Death lost its hold on you

Rise up!

Lost soul

You’re gonna be made new

Rise up!

Weary soul

He’s gonna carry you through

Rise up!

Come Home!

The Father is waiting with open arms

The pain of this world weighs you down

Darkness encroaches all around

The loss and the trials and all the unknowns

It all looks familiar, but it’s not home

Hang on to hope

It’s almost dawn

It feels like forever

But it won’t be long

Here come the Son

He’s gonna lead us home

We’re going to sing out in One song

So Rise Up!

Let us rejoice

Rise Up!

In one voice

Rise up!

Sing songs in the night

Morning is nigh

Gonna dance and sing

Rise up!

Jesus is King!!!

Rise up!

Here comes the Son

Declaring the truth

Death’s overcome

LOVE won!
