Here I Rise


Here I rise from being a boy into a young man
Here I rise to put all the playful games to the side
Here I rise because soon I will be a man
Here I rise to learn the responsibly of being on my own

Here I rise to take life more seriously
Here I rise to take the journey of life
Here I rise to take a chance of being a father someday
Here I rise to admit to my mistakes

Here I rise to defeat the prince of darkness
Here I rise to give my life to the Lord
Here I rise to step out into this bitter world
Here I rise to be a somebody and not an anybody

Here I rise to become a old man someday
Here I rise to face the angel of death
Here I rise to look God in his eyes
Here I say I thank you for giving me life.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
