I Will Rise

I’m always searching for peaceful, encouraging worship music for my IPod and to share with others, and one of the latest I came upon was, “I Will Rise” by Chris Tomlin.  It’s peaceful, encouraging, worshipful…and more!   The song is on Tomlin’s album, “Hello Love“, and I just placed it in the blue Music Box to the right.  I hope you’ll listen and read along.  This song offers grace to the hearers (Ephesians 4:29), hope and comfort  to the soul.

I Will Rise

by Chris Tomlin

There’s a peace I’ve come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There’s an anchor for my soul
I can say “It is well”

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead 

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles’ wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

There’s a day that’s drawing near
When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead 

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles’ wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
“Worthy is the Lamb”
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
“Worthy is the Lamb”

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles’ wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise!

  1. These words keep going over and over in my mind:

    And I will rise when He calls my name
    No more sorrow, no more pain
    I will rise on eagles’ wings
    Before my God fall on my knees.

    Now to let them sink down into my spirit……
