I’d been working on this post for a while, and then last week my cousin passed away after a brief battle with leukemia. This song has a more special meaning to me now when I think of him and his family. We are all taking comfort knowing he had a strong faith in Jesus and that he is in a better place now. I’d like to dedicate it to him.
Chris Tomlin performing “I Will Rise” live in concert.
I hope you enjoy this beautiful song!
Some lyrics from the song:
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 I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
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
…for we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7 (ESV)
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
John 14:27 (ESV)
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
John 16:33 (ESV)
Today I pray that you will rest in God’s peace, the peace that passes understanding, and that remembering “I will rise” gives you comfort.
