I’ve Got To Rise

There are times that I get down
From the trials of this life
It is then I realize
I’ve got to rise
 
It seems I am in a pit
And the grave is not too far
I gaze up into the skies
I’ve got to rise
 
Rise up from the ashes
Rise up from the deep
Rise up from the sin that weighs me down
Rise up from my torment
Into His loving arms
Jesus stands there waiting
Holding out His hand
I gaze into His eyes and rise up
 
I can see a brighter future
But there’s one thing I must do
I must take back my life
I’ve got to rise
 
Only by His power
Only by His blood
Only by the Spirit of the Lord
Rising out of darkness
Into glorious light
Rising out of bondage
Into free delight
I’ve got to rise
I’ve got to rise
 
Rise up from the ashes
Rise up from the deep
Rise up from the sin that weighs me down
Rise up from my torment
Into His loving arms
Jesus stands there waiting
Holding out His hand
I gaze into His eyes and rise up
