Rise Up Sweet Child

Rise Up Sweet Child

Oh Child, now is the time, now is the time

Rise above, push through, go beyond

Open your eyes, open your ears

No more passivity

I’m calling you

Releasing you

The time has come to respond

Can you say, say, say, say

Shout it from the mountaintop

Whisper from the valley

My fire within you is burning brighter

Brighter with each day

Like My love for you

My love for you

My love is here to stay

Rise up higher dear son and daughter, I will not let you fall

Push through, break through, know that I am your All in all

Go beyond the last step taken, let Me take you further

I’m on the sideline encouraging you, your Friend, your Hope, your Brother

Rise above all that is keeping you down

Rise above all that tries to steal your crown

Rise above everything making you frown

Rise above darkness wanting you to drown

Rise, rise, rise

Rise, rise, rise

Push through the gates that keep you in bondage

Push through the cruel lies where death is the wage

Push through, for the Lord has set His own stage

Push through, all locks are released from the cage

Push, push, push

Push, push, push

Go beyond to treasures waiting unseen

Go beyond, you’re free, you’ve been washed so clean

Go beyond with God and promises glean

Go beyond to places you’ve never been

Go, go, go

Go, go, go

Oh Child, now is the time, now is the time

Rise above, push through, go beyond

Open your eyes, open your ears

No more passivity

I’m calling you

Releasing you

The time has come to respond

Can you say, say, say, say

Shout it from the mountaintop

Whisper from the valley

My fire within you is burning brighter

Brighter with each day

Like My love for you

My love for you

My love is here to stay

Rise up higher dear son and daughter, I will not let you fall

Push through, break through, know that I am your All in all

Go beyond the last step taken, let Me take you further

I’m on the sideline encouraging you, your Friend, your Hope, your Brother

You can do it

You can do it

Rise above 

Push through 

Go beyond 

Rise above, push through, go beyond

Rise above, push through, go beyond
