The human spirit will never die
Like the phoenix from the fire it will rise
From the ashes a crown of beauty is received
The heavenly glory to come will satisfy all our needs
A hundred times the child may stumble and fall
But he will learn to run leaving his crawl
This is something that can never be taken or stole
In us, it is courage and character it molds
It was built into us to always strive
This is what allows our humanity to survive and thrive
We forever aspire to the formidable heights
We never surrender the ineluctable fight
Wars, obstacles, and bondage cannot defeat
But, they separate the strong from the weak
The key is held in the power of our minds
It is strength of will and determination to find
Wisdom and discernment keep us knowing
But, heart and soul are what will keep us going
Trust in God takes away our fear
His Promise is not to forsake, but to stay near
It is in the Spirit we are not victims but victors
It is He who redeems, rebuilds, and restores
We can become worriers or warriors
We can plunge, crash or soar
Let us rise up, be on fire and fly
There is no limit, not even the sky
If God is for us, no one can stand against us
So rise up, rise up, no choice, we must
Rise up, rise up, in God we trust
"When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I
praise—in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?"
"And provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them
a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."
"I will never leave you nor forsake you."
"What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?"
