Hope Has Come (Rise)

 

Fallen down, broken in the streets

 

Hopeless eyes filled with pain searching for something to eat

 

The broken, the abandoned and the abused

 

desperately searching, praying they find some use

 

When purpose has been stripped away 

 

How could you find value in everyday

 

When others see a sun rise, beautiful filled with majesty

 

All you can see is another busy day, more crowed street

 

More time wasted on this Earth

 

Another hopeless day spent down in the filthy dirt

 

 

 

Thats your life now but not the only one you’ve ever known

 

There was a time, a warmth, a place to call home

 

Remember that? A place to call you own?

 

 

 

Now those days are gone and all thats left is regret

 

One more needle, one last bottle, and a chance to forget

 

 

 

But there’s a choice, another road; life, come and see

 

The way, the truth the life has come for you and me

 

With love and grace he passes by

 

Hope anew coming with peace in his eye

 

 

 

Death is has tasted it’s final sting

 

The grave has no place for you and me

 

I have to tell you there is hope

 

More to life now than empty crack and dope

 

 

 

So rise my friends for a new day has come

 

Rise and for the first time breath in the sun

 

Rise against the pointless fumes of nonexistent life 

 

Rise to the dawn, fight with all His might

 

Rise one last time from this dark and terrible night

 

Rise to see that in Him you have been found

 

Rise for the first time to see you face leave the ground

 

Rise, his name is Jesus and he knows just what to do

 

Rise because He knows your name, and he has come to rescue you
