Stumbling blocks lay all around,
To build a solid wall.
Obstacles lay in your path,
To make you feel the fall.
Too much to do, not enough time,
As the body tires soÖ
Itís time to take it to a place,
Where you can just let go.
Rise up to find your peace of mind,
In the presence of a king!
Rise up and take it all with you,
As your praises loudly ring!
Rise up and see the light he shines,
Through the bitterness and pain;
Rise up and let your spirit know,
Why this king hung in the rain!
Fear and fright gets in the way,
But Godís Spirit must prevail!
Anxious hearts are overwhelmed:
The reason for each nail!
Passionate nature, stained within,
Keeps falling with each lossÖ
He saw the need and felt the hurt;
Itís why he chose the cross!
Rise up and see what he did for you,
When Christ chose that lonesome way;
Rise up and let your heart declare,
What your words could never sayÖ
Rise up and know how much youíre worth:
God counts your every tear!
Rise up and see a light break through,
From a heart that is sincere!
