Rise From The Ashes

Sunrise, Beach, Ocean, Sea, Seascape

Rise with me from ashes

To build and start again

Putting reliance in the Saviour

And not in mortal men

Politicians they shall fail us

The rich seek but there own

But those of faith shall prosper

And achieve an eternal home

While this world seems bleak –

Full of darkness

And troubles seem immense

He will bear His children’s burdens

And true justice He will dispense

Tiredness, tears

Tears and tiredness

Fatigue beyond my years

Tears and tiredness

Tiredness, tears

Calls for relief to unhearing ears

Tiredness, tears

Tears and tiredness

Standing watch to protect my peers

Tears and tiredness

Tiredness, tears

Hope for help as morning nears

Tears, Tiredness

Tiredness and tears
