A song for the waiting

Every stone that makes you stumble and cuts you when you fall, 
every serpent here that strikes your heel to curse you when you crawl 
One day, the king of love one day will crush them all


And every sad seduction, every clever lie, 
every word that woos and wounds the pilgrim children of the sky
The king of love will break them by and by


And you will rise up in the end
You will rise up in the end.
I know the night is cruel, but the day is coming soon 
And you will rise up in the end


------------------------------------------------------


If the thief had to come to plunder when the children were alone, if he ravaged every daughter and murdered every son; would not their father see this? Would not his anger burn? And would he not repay the tyrant on the day of his return?


Await. Await the day of his return


Cause he will rise up in the end
He will rise up in the end
I know you need a Savior -- He is patient in his anger,
but he will rise up in the end


And when the stars come crashing to the sea, when the high and mighty fall down on their knees, when you see the Son descending in the sky, the chains of death will fall around your feet and you will rise up in the end


You will rise up in the end
You will rise up in the end
You will rise up in the end




-- Ben Shive, "Rise Up"
