Peterson, Andrew - Rise Up Lyrics

Every stone that makes you stumble
And cuts you when you fall
Every serpent here that strikes your heel
To curse you when you crawl
The king of love one day will crush them all

And every sad seduction, and every clever lie
Every word that woos and wounds the pilgrim, children of the sky
The king of love will break them by and by

And you will rise up in the end
You will rise up in the end
I know the night is cruel
But the day is coming soon
When you will rise up in the end

If a thief had come to plunder
When the children were alone
If he ravaged every daughter
And murdered every son
Would not the father see this?
Would not his anger burn?
Would he not repay the tyrant
In the day of his return?
Await, await the day of his return

Cause he will rise up in the end
He will rise up in the end
I know you need a savior
He's patient in his anger
But he will rise up in the end

And when the stars come crashing to the sea
When the high and mighty fall down on their knee
We'll see the sun descending in the sky
The chains of death will fall around your feet

And you will rise up in the end
You will rise up in the end
You will rise up in the end
I know you will

    These are sweet tears and through your song I feel Jesus holding my hand, forgiving me and turning me from what he hates.

  4. Walking by the Spirit Always

    My goodness. A real rapture aware songwriter and beautiful singer. I am so excited that we have been chosen to fly, rise up and meet Jesus in the clouds to go to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. We know that He is coming! Praise the Lord and thank you Father for choosing to give us to your Son- John 17. 1 Thessalonians 4. Hallelujah and Maranatha.

  9. Dekrypt

    One of the greatest encouragements and causes for hope to live out the gospel in this life is the promise of Christ's return. No longer meek, but as a warrior king, who's very appearance compels every being to lower themselves to their knees while raising those "pilgrim children of the sky" to the glory of God the Father. And such a song swells the heart of every believer.

    Walking by the Spirit Always

    Oh how wonderful it will be to see Jesus in the clouds in all His glory. Our hearts long to see Him. Glory to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
