"I Will Rise" as written by and Jesse Reeves 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 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

    General Commentthis song changed my life...i whant to a combo camp called m-fuge and centri-fuge about a year ago and they sang this song...the sermon was about "leaving you baggage with Christ" and i whent down and got on my knees and prayed...and as i walked down the live band they had there started to play this song...i whent and got on my knees...i knew i had alot of baggage...and it was hard...just the simple fact of living was hard...i whent down alone...i was the first out of my entire youth group to go...by the time they sang the first chourous i was bawling...it was very emotional...and when they said "when this darkness breaks to light" i felt a hand on my back...i instinctivly looked back and saw two of my best friends there on either side of me and a couple of people comming down from my youth group too...when they sang "i will rise" for the last time i got up and walked back...knowing i had friends and basically a family that was my youth group that i had basically grew up with...as soon as it was over the entire combo camp broke down into their youth groups that had come for individual bible study...and that night we had a very moving talk...i told them about what was goin on at my house and i got to hear alot about my friends that i didnt know...at the end of that my youth minister asked us all to close our eyes...we all did...and he said that there were some that really need help...and that it wasnt bad nor greedy to ask for it...and that it wasnt weakness...it was actually showing that you know you cannot handle it on your own...and he asked anybody that felt as they needed help to come to the middle of the room and sit in a cicle...the people on either side of me urged me to go...i knew i needed it...but i wasnt sure...but i went...after everybody that wanted to go up there was up there...my youth pastor asked for anyone that wanted to come to the middle and place a hand on one person in particular and pray for them...it ended up that every one in my youth group ended up in the middle in a tight huddle...everyone was crying...arms were wrapped around each other and we were all praying for one another...at the very end of this we broke for the little free time that we hadnt used up and went to enjoy ourselves...i waited up on my friend and i got to witness her asking to be saved!...what an experience!...but the night after i found her crying and tried to figure out why...come to find out her best friend committed sucide...after word got around...my whole youth group AND some of the friends that we made there came and we did a prayer walk throught the prayer garden...then we were invited tocome have some pizza to cheer up everybody...but by the time we got there it was gone...haha...so we all walked around and talked and laughed...btw...im a 13 year old goin on 14 that lives in a super small town in mississippi...the combo camp was hosted in south carolina and the best friend is my neibhor...i have known her for years...she is 15...we are now starting a local teen bible study in our little town...this is just one of the many amazing stories that God has given me to pass on...he is too amazing to keep stories such as these hidden...im sorry for tacking up so much time and space...but this story just had to be told!
