McDonald, Shawn - Rise Lyrics

Yes I will rise
Out of these ashes rise
From this trouble I have found
And this rubble on the ground
I will rise
Cause He Who is in me
Is greater than I will ever be
And I will rise

Sometimes my heart is on the ground
And hope is nowhere to be found
Love is a figment I once knew
And yet I hold on to what I know is true

Yes I will rise
Out of these ashes rise
From this trouble I have found
And this rubble on the ground
I will rise
Cause He Who is in me
Is greater than I will ever be
And I will rise

Well I keep on coming to this place
That I don't know quite how to face
So I lay down my life in hopes to die
That somehow I might rise

Yes I will rise
Out of these ashes rise
From this trouble I have found
And this rubble on the ground
I will rise
Cause He Who is in me
Is greater than I will ever be
And I will rise

McDonald, Shawn Rise Comments
  1. Barbara Wynne

    Still absolutely love this song <3

  2. Dominique Thomas

    Still great, but most importantly relevant in 2020! Thank you for this song

  3. Uncommon Sense

    Thanks to Jesus Christ and what he did (dying on the cross for the remission of our sins), we now have the opportunity to conquer sin and death, in His name. Can't wait to see y'all in heaven - the definitive family of believers, loving one another unconditionally as the Lord does us. And we will never love Him as much as He loves us and we are blessed for that. Have a blessed day everyone.

  4. David Fuentes

    Beautiful!!! Thank you so much for helping me when I feel low. Everybody in this world is amazing! Wake up with a smile and you will fall asleep with one.

  12. Jesus Saves

    "Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. "{1 John 4:4)

  13. Felicia Moniq

    Hi Shawn. I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for saying the words I needed to say and believe. I appreciate it. No matter, what you’ve helped a lot of people and God knows your heart. Like dust I’ll rise. Like a humbled servant, I will be lifted up. Like a praise from my inner being to the God I know I will rise.

  14. Felicia Moniq

    “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.” ‭‭-James‬ ‭4:10‬ ‭NLT

  30. Lori Sullivan

    Absolutely beautiful song with deep meaning. This is perfect for where I am right now. Now my favorite song! Keep up the amazing work! Cannot wait to see you live.

  31. Ink Weaver

    This song really helps. I spent my childhood listening to my mom sing this in the church or just making dinner. Love the lyrics and the meaning, its a shame because I'm kind of falling out of the love of Christian music 'cause all the lyrics are the same: Jesus loves me or you. I mean that's wonderful and everything, but it gets old really fast. I want something that will make me want to jump into the song and just jam out with tears in my eyes. Not many now a day Christian songs make me want to do that. It's nice, though when this song comes on the radio and I just close my eyes in the middle of one of my books and whisper the words along with him. It makes me feel closer to God when nothing else will. Its a true blessing, this song.
           It makes you feel like you can rise above the pain and strife of this world, to "rise above the ashes." I wish more people knew about Shawn McDonald.

    Ink Weaver

    +PrettyTiaF Mmmm. I feel ya. Their getting better, though. Some really good Christian jams out there.

    Anjelica Osorio

    This song is so lifting! My 5 year old and I sing along to this song all the time, a family favorite!

    Awesome song Sean, God bless!

  60. Brian Edwards

    As I sit here listening to this I think about the fact that life doesn't always give me exactly what I want. Then I remember that I don't want it to. Jesus gave me exactly the one he wanted me to have and there couldn't be a better one. He died so we can live..

  61. Katrina Clagg

  71. Ken Whitehead

    Welcome to the family, Now everything is fine !

  72. Lori Dale

    This was my theme song for 2011. I like to say I tripped over my tongue and did myself an injury. It may have eventually, indirectly led to a job loss. I was devastated. About the time I lost my job I had a kidney stone. It was not a good time. But God brought me a new job and it has led to new opportunities. I can't say I am grateful for the job loss, or the stone yet, but I am sure grateful for all that he has brought into my life since then. God is GOOD!

  73. Wesley Halprin

    If any one is interested I have a revelation that is deserving to go the Pope. People use the term's "fly", "high", "im about to jet", "im about to take off" and "im about to crash" because satan knew he was going to be bale to attack the Twin Towers with plane's that fly, take off and in this case crash. You see Satan and how all he does is persecute? Now we can see more of his persecution and honor God by repenting and spreading a good message of repentance and confession and salvation. :)

  74. Dennis Florine

    This song influenced music for my next album. Would you check out my version of the song on my youtube page? I am doing 15 videos this month to raise awareness for my Kickstarter, and my new album :) WE WOULD LOVE YOUR HELP.
