RISE- by Jess Hall

Rise up like the dawn

Lift up like the mist

Cry out in your darkness

Stand up in its midst


Let courage arise

As trust swells in your heart

Your Creator, He hears you

Has been with you from the start


On your feet, lift your hands

His strength flows through your limbs

Rise up and climb out

He shall help you ascend


Arise out of the pit

Emerge from your despair

His light, it will guide you

His word shows his great care


Give thanks to the Lord

Always trust in His ways

Beloved, He loves you

Rise up, sing His praise



“…when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me.” (Micah 7:8, ESV)


“I rise before dawn and cry for help; I hope in Your words.” (Psalm 119:147)


“If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.” (Psalm 139:9-10, NIV)


“for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again…” (Proverbs 24:16)
