Rise Up (Part 1)

when you down who lifts you up

when you lost who finds you

when you fall, it is from grace

if so, whose grace


who is lost with you

who binds the wounds

who do you discover when you are down

yourself or another


what waits over the horizon

what lies beneath the wounds

what lifts you up

come on rise up


we rise by lifting others up

we discover ourselves when lost

we need not be alone

come on stand together


every breath is a doorway

to heaven or hell

so just breath

and rise up
