Children Rise Up


Children rise up
Children rise up
You are free
You are free
From Satan's reach

Children rise up
Lead the way
You are the light
That sees us through each day

Children Rise Up
You are from God
Made in his image
And closest to his heart

Children Rise Up
Young and Old
Go out and profess the word of God
With earnesty and with soul

Children Rise Up
You are special
You are special
More so than the God's angels

For you are the angels
The leaders of the world
The light from the darkness
The most precious of us all

We are the children
Each one of us
Young and Old
Are from God's soul

In Him we believe
In HIm we shall succeed
Through turmoil and toils
God protects us from Satan's ploys

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
