Sylvia Simone – Rise (Stand Up) lyrics

Rise (Stand Up)
D. patterson, c. mcrae

My children gather round
It's time to rise up cause we’ve been held down
Start Preparing for a brand new day
Don’t let anything get in your way

It's time to

Rise/ stand up
Rise/ it's a brand new day

Hold your head up walk with pride
Don’t be afraid cause I’m by your side
We’ve got to keep making a better way
‘cause the future is here today

Rise/ stand up
Rise/ it's a brand new day

Remember all the things that you’ve been through
It's been hard rewards are way past due
It didn’t beat us - made us stronger
But we might have to fight just a little bit longer

Rise/ stand up
Rise/ it's a brand new day

Now’s the time hold you head up
Walk with pride
Touch the sky hold you head up
Walk with pride
