RISE FROM THE ASHES

IN HONOUR OF RWANDAN AND OTHER HOLOCAUST VICTIMS

World in flames dreams crumbled to embers,
Hope almost extinguished overcome by the fire.
No one around to rescue me.
Completely surrounded by enemies.
No present no future the past just a memory
Death is the only reprieve.

Fires bright as lightening surround me
Blackened smoke burning my eyes.
Tortured tissues torn to pieces
Scorched earth cracks and bleeds and dies.


Oh but rise from the ashes
There's still life to live.
The future is waiting
But you have to forgive.
Bear witness to the tragedies,
lives that were lost.
For the losers and abusers
paid a terrible cost.
Breathe in life breathe in love,
from the giver of gifts.
Then rise from the ashes and live.

How can I rise again
when there's nothing inside?
When the only thing I know
is to tremble and hide.
Broken pieces broken families
Broken hearts ruined lives.
"I am lost, it is finished," I cry.

Then I remember a hillside
a cross lifted high.
Where a man gave his life
for a world that was blind.
By his blood He forgave me
Perfect love paid my price.
Then with face towards His Father
'It is finished,' He cried.

Then He rose from the ashes
With new life to give.
He has a future just waiting
He asks us to forgive.
And to bear witness to the tragedies
Lives that are lost,
For the losers and abusers
Pay a terrible cost.
He brings life He brings love
As the giver of gifts.
He says, 'rise from the ashes and live!'

So rise from the ashes
There's still life to live.
The future is waiting
But we have to forgive.
We bear witness to the tragedies
lives that were lost,
For the losers and abusers
Paid a terrible cost.
Breathe in life breathe in love
from the giver of gifts.
Then rise from the ashes and live.
Rise from the ashes and live.
