We stand, we rise, we give our lives.
We stand, we rise, we give our lives.

[Spoken]
It began long ago, when darkness, through its deceit captured the hearts of the sons and daughters of light.
We looked for light but we found only darkness.
We searched for bright skies but walked in gloom.
We fumbled like the blind along the wall, feeling our way like people without eyes.
We were destined to fall. Even in the brightest days, we stumbled as if it were dark.
Among the living we were like the dead. We looked for justice, but it never came. We looked for rescue but it was far from us.
So He, himself stepped in to save us, with his strong arm and justice to sustain him.
He put on righteousness as armor, salvation his helmet. He clothed himself with the robe of vengeance and wrapped himself in a cloak of divine passion.
He slipped out of his royal garments, left eternity to enter time, divinity to wrap himself in humanity.
The sea of glass, the ocean of separation, he left peace, and for the first time felt pain.
Because the very hands that held the stars were now sentenced to wear my scars.
It was love that purchased this traitors heart.
It's what the prophets spoke about when they envisioned light living in men once again.
For this reason, I AM LEGEND, predestined for greatness, build for the final hour.
I was born for this, with weapons in hand, armor in place, I now march to the beat of a different drum.
I will break through battle lines that have been drawn by discouragement and despair.
Where more is left to be said, time has met its end.
It's now or never. Collision with me, myself and I.
You see, my mission today is clear: TO WAKE THE DEAD.
So let freedom's song rage.
Do not abandon. You're not alone. Last day warriors arise from yesterday's ash and raise your fist with us.
We are the army that is charging upon the land.
Defeat is no longer an option. It is victory.

We stand, we rise, we give our lives.
We stand, we rise, we give our lives.
We stand, we rise, we give our lives.
We stand, we rise, we give our lives.
We stand, we rise, we give our lives.
We stand, we rise, we give our lives.

    Song Meaning"It began long ago, when darkness, through its deceit captured the hearts of the sons and daughters of light. We looked for light but we found only darkness.We searched for bright skies but walked in gloom. We fumbled like the blind along the wall, feeling our way like people without eyes. We were destined to fall. Even in the brightest days, we stumbled as if it were dark. Among the living we were like the dead. We looked for justice, but it never came. We looked for rescue but it was far from us." This part is talking about when sin came into the world when the devil tricked Adam and Eve into disobeying God. From that point on the world was full of bad things and the even the people who loved God could not be with him because God is good and they were now part of an evil world. All people were lost from God because of this.
    "So He, himself stepped in to save us, with his strong arm and justice to sustain him.
    He put on righteousness as armor, salvation his helmet. He clothed himself with the robe of vengeance and wrapped himself in a cloak of divine passion.
    He slipped out of his royal garments, left eternity to enter time, divinity to wrap himself in humanity.
    The sea of glass, the ocean of separation, he left peace, and for the first time felt pain.
    Because the very hands that held the stars were now sentenced to wear my scars. " This part talks about when God sent his son Jesus into the picture so that he could build a relationship with people in this world. Jesus was perfectly good so he was able to take our place suffering the penalty that we were supposed to have, death. So instead of us being separated from God, Jesus made it so that we could be with him forever in heaven. Jesus was used to being in heaven and he came here and dealt with all the crap we deal with as human beings in this crazy world.
    "It was love that purchased this traitors heart." He did this not because he wanted to judge us but because he loves us and wants us to be close to him.
    "It's what the prophets spoke about when they envisioned light living in men once again." The prophets in the old testament in the bible talked about this happening.
    "For this reason, I AM LEGEND, predestined for greatness, build for the final hour.
    I was born for this, with weapons in hand, armor in place, I now march to the beat of a different drum.
    I will break through battle lines that have been drawn by discouragement and despair.
    Where more is left to be said, time has met its end.
    It's now or never. Collision with me, myself and I.
    You see, my mission today is clear: TO WAKE THE DEAD.
    So let freedom's song rage.
    Do not abandon. You're not alone. Last day warriors arise from yesterday's ash and raise your fist with us.
    We are the army that is charging upon the land.
    Defeat is no longer an option. It is victory." The rest is talking about how we have new life because of what happened and we can help and love other people and tell them about it all so that they can know God too and have new life too and win the battle against our struggles because of Jesus.
