I used to be afraid of giving up
The road was just too tough
Out here on my own
My path was so alone

But now I see clearly
Everything within me
Is reaching up to the sky
I can see the world with open eyes

You can't let it pass you
Just take hold and grasp it
Now's the time to take a chance
With the strength of a thousand men
Climbing to my feet again

So dry those tears from your eyes
And everything will be alright
You know the rainbow's just in sight
Dust your wings off as you rise
If your heart feels overwhelmed
Just know you're never by yourself
Put your hand in mine, hold your head up high
And together we'll rise

Never lift your head up to the sky
And find yourself asking why?
Never seen eye to eye
With the hardships of life

But faith is where my heart is
That energy replaces my doubts
Won't let my trials get the best of me
I'm marching forth towards my destiny

You can't let it pass you
Just take hold and grasp it
Now's the time to take a chance
With the strength of a thousand men
Climbing to my feet again

So dry those tears from your eyes
And everything will be alright
You know the rainbow's just in sight

Dust your wings off as you rise
If your heart feels overwhelmed
Just know you're never by yourself
Put your hand in mine, hold your head up high
And together we'll rise

Together we can do anything
We'll rise
We can make it through anything
We'll rise
Together we can do anything
We'll rise, we'll rise, we'll rise

You can try to hurt me
Doubt me, even desert me
I'll feel the will of kings
With my mind I'll plant a seed

And you know a tree will grow
And take me in
To safety's arms
I will descend

So dry those tears from your eyes
And everything will be alright
You know the rainbow's just in sight
Dust your wings off as you rise
If your heart feels overwhelmed
Just know you're never by yourself
Put your hand in mine, hold your head up high
And together we'll rise

Together we can do anything
We'll rise
We can make it through anything
We'll rise
Together we can do anything
We'll rise, we'll rise, we'll rise

Together we can do anything
We'll rise
We can make it through anything
We'll rise
Together we can do anything
We'll rise, we'll rise, we'll rise
