I’d Like to Rise Up


I’d like, I’d like to rise up,
I’d like to be yeast for you.
I’d like, I’d like to sing joy,
to fill the world with you.

I need your Living Presence,
I need to know you’re near.
I need you to live. I need—
to leave behind my fear.

Chorus
I need your Present Power,
I need to know you’re strong.
I need you to live. I need —
to give voice to my song.

Chorus
You choose to freely give your love.
You chose to lift the Christ.
You choose us to live. You choose —
us in praise to rise.
