Chris Tomlin – I Will Rise lyrics

There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say "It is well"

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

There's a day that's drawing near
When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
"Worthy is the Lamb"

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise
I will rise

    My church choir is learning this song. It is so comforting & fills my heart with such peace. My Mother passed away last April after a long illness. She was a wonderful Christian Mother who lived her entire life ready to meet her Lord. Through the years when I would say, Momma I don't think I can live without you. She would gently but firmly say, "when he calls my name I'm ready". I cannot make it through the song without crying, b/c I remember the words of my sweet Mother.

    I truly love this song. Anytime I hear it my spirit is uplifted. Jesus is the peace and the anchor we have come to know. Our body may fail us through sickness, pain, and sorrow. But in all these we can boldly say it is well because we know Jesus has overcome dead for our sake. Therefore we can enjoy eternal life not on earth but in heaven when the glorious day come. We shall see all our loved ones who have passed away. When God call their names, they will arise and we all shall give thanks and praises to God, there will be no more crying, no more pain, and no more sorrow. What a glorious day that will be!

    On my way to church today I was thinking of a coworker/ friend that was near the end of her long battle with cancer. I felt so sad as she is in her 30 and leaving behind a little boy. I began to pray for her peace and comfort and this song came on the radio. I felt comforted knowing she is in gods arms. She passed a wag a few hours later.

    I walked into my friend's (of nearly 40 years) room this morning at 5am after a phone call that she had just passed away from cancer. As she lay there, still and frail, I realized that this song was drifting from a radio that we had next to her bed playing the christian radio station. As the words filled my ears, the presence of the lord filled the room and the victory over death was real and glorious. Her family was going to have her cremated with no christian memorial and I looked at the friend who was with me and told her that god was having his own funeral service for her right then and there! What a beautiful song for her as she made her journey to heaven.

    I am in christ a new creature. I've been reborn because he defeated satan, bringing us into light out of darkness. We no longer have to die a single final death. Our bodies die but we return "home" to be with our lord jesus christ because he took on our sin unto himself and paid the penalty of death for us. We will have eternal life. Whether we die or are caught up with him when he returns, we will enter into eternal life because we've accepted his free gift, accept him and showed him faith and belief. We will rise to heaven with our lord jesus christ.
