I Will Rise - Chris Tomlin's I Will Rise When He Calls My Name

I Will Rise By Chris Tomlin

Has anyone heard this fantastic song by Chris Tomlin called 'I Will Rise'? I heard it a while back and just love the lyrics. Having searched the web it looks like this song was a collaborative effort with the following people helping to write the song: Louie Giglio, Matt Maher, Jesse Reeves and Chris Tomlin.







The lyrics to the song are as follows:


I Will Rise

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

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus:]
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"
[x2]

[Chorus:]
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


Wow! This song is truly inspired of God - if you haven't heard it before you can listen to it on YouTube here - enjoy!
