Let Us Rise
Lyrics by Love M. Willis and Elizabeth Ragsdale
Music by Elizabeth Ragsdale

Verse 1
Father, hear the prayer we offer.
Not for ease that prayer shall be.
But for strength that we may ever
Live our lives courageously.

Verse 2
Not forever in green pastures
Do we ask our way to be.
But the steep and rugged pathway
May we tread rejoicingly.

Chorus
Standing still will never
Get us where we want to go.
Let us rise. Let us strive.
And with boldness ever grow.

Verse 3
Not forever by still waters
Would we idly quiet stay.
But would smite the living fountains
From the rocks along our way.

Chorus
