Rise Above (WORDS)

from Words & Sounds by gospel lee



It's 2012, I stepped out 11/Yeah I fought hell, now watch me bring Heaven/I watch 'em flee 7/ways when I come through/They tried to hold me down/I had to break through

Wasn't an easy road-no asphalt/Most of them struggles last year, I was at fault/You never left me though/You saw my heart to grow/I asked forgiveness, you forgot like "what you askin' for"

Wish I could say that was the only time/that I ain't do somethin foolish and just cross the line/Im like the 99 'cept I'm the opposite/Never in the sheep fold I'm always hoppin' it

But when I called Your name/Yeah You always came/Grace and blood washed me clean 'till no sin remained/You couldn't find a stain-yeah that's what love did/You gave your best for me-but that's how love gives

So you can save your judgement I'm a new creation/My past has passed away so keep your condemnation/He gave me strength to stand, Ive got the strength to fight/Made sure I lost these bags before I took flight


We gon rise above (X4)

Ima rise abouve
You gon rise above
We gon rise above
We gon rise above

I had my feet set & my mind right/ had no idea my walk would soon become a fight/My reflection was my greatest enemy/Self destructive habits I was into almost ended me

Envy, lust, greed, doubt, all were at the root of it/Death, pain and separation yeah that was the fruit of it/Friends I hung with they was choking all my life away/Tried to walk upright but they say you should walk another way

And then the trials came like some flood rains/Took everything I had to stay afloat and maintain/And I had opposition like you ain't never seen/Your worst nightmares were my day dreams

Then my eyes cleared-Ben Stein/You were by my side like the whole time/Showed me I overcame and wasn't overcome/I found asylum in the shadow of the Holy One

Called me out my struggles and patiently loved me through it/Tests and trials you stood with me when I thought I couldn't do it/Your power put an end to all unhealthy friendships/Opposition obstacles are nothing now I'm limitless


I was made for more so I'm letting go/Some things have to die so that some things can grow/So I tied him up then I lit the match/He's burning in my rearview but I ain't lookin' back

I hear him crying out he might as well forget me/I'm huntin' Destiny and he ain't commin' with me/Plans for me to fail more than anybody else/I rise above him every single day I kill myself
