Rise Up...



This is going to be short and sweet, no waxing on poetic tonight. These words, this song raise strength and hope in my spirit and put a my-Jesus-can-do-all-things smile on my face.

I don’t know your struggles or worries or pains… but bring them to the Lord, His LOVE is unending, 
His MERCIES never fail, and His GRACE is abundantly sufficient.

My JESUS makes all things new.

Take a few minutes and let these words fill your heart to the brim...


Come broken and weary
Come battered and bruised
My Jesus makes all things new
All things new

Come lost and abandoned
Come blown by the wind
He’ll bring you back home again
Home again

Rise up, O you sleeper, awake
The light of the dawn is upon you
Rise up, O you sleeper, awake
He makes all things new
All things new


Come burning with shame
Come frozen with guilt
My Jesus, he loves you still
Loves you still

Rise up, O you sleeper, awake
The light of the dawn is upon you
Rise up, O you sleeper, awake
He makes all things new
All things new


So hold on to the promise
The stories are true
That Jesus makes all things new
(The dawn is upon you)
