Arise, I Say….. (For a New Day Is Here)
Speaking into my heart
Awakening its every sensation
When you weakened it, it fell flat
Niagara waters fell with less translation.
Arise I say, my weaken soul for a new life becomes you
Arise I say, my achy heart for you flow with rich blood.
Each moment we share opens a door
Gives to me the life of your soul
The breeze I feel is nothing more
Than the words you breathe.
Arise I say, my dreadful time in freedom
Arise I say, my lonely self died in you.
giving into the enriching glow of life
Each day that passes we flourish
as flowers surrounding death
in this our walking path we vanish.
Arise I say, celebrate your new feet to walk
Arise I say, you now have your knees about you
Oh, how my heart pains for your hands
For your hands cradle with the joy of spring
Oh, how I wait for the singing of your heart.
For the life we live will be filled with music.
Arise I say, for life has been placed in you.
Arise I say, for you now you can live.
