lyrics

RISE
Today we cry, but tomorrow we RISE
Today we cry, but tomorrow we Rise

Oh we rise to go High when the world has gone Low
To put back the pieces which seem scattered so
For Kindness to matter not misplaced Righteousness
For yes, all lives Matter, though some not enough
So we Rise, we Rise

Today we cry, but tomorrow we Rise
Today we cry, but tomorrow we Rise

Oh we Rise for the mother whose pain they don’t know
For her road to travel, yes her Choice alone
For families in fear of ripped away Dreams
For those Standing boldly by Rocks and by streams
Oh we Rise, we Rise

Today we cry, but tomorrow we Rise
Today we cry, but tomorrow we Rise

Oh we Rise like the trees of the great Sumatra
We Rise for the bees and the sweet Truffola
Oh we Rise for the Child who hasn’t enough
We Rise for two people who just want to Love
Oh we Rise, we Rise

Today we cry, but tomorrow we Rise
Today we cry, but tomorrow we Rise

Oh we RISE
Oh we RISE
Let's dry these eyes
We RISE
