"RISE ABOVE"

Verse 1
These are troublous times.
I can't depend on my own mind.
I've got to overcome the fears and worries of today.
My own strength has let me down and left me wearing a frown.
I feel like giving up, but there's a better way.

Chorus
I choose to rise above the things of this world
And fly higher than the clouds of doubt and fear.
When I rise above, nothing is impossible;
All my dreams are attainable, it's clear,
By rising above.

[I choose to rise above.]-

Verse 2
As I move along through life, I see misery and strife,
The world is full of disappointments everywhere.
But I won't give up what's right, so I keep moving toward the light,
And when I'm faced with feelings of despair +

Chorus
I choose to rise above the things of this world
And fly higher than the clouds of doubt and fear.
When I rise above, nothing is impossible;
All my dreams are attainable, it's clear +

Verse 3
The Endtime is here, tribulation's drawing near,
A time of trouble the world has never known.
Will I let the Lord use me to set many people free?
There's only one way that I know to be strong.

[Spoken:][Come out of the valley.]
[Sung:]
-[I choose to rise above.]-

[Spoken:]
[Rise above.]

Bridge [sung]
Rising above is letting go
Of all the earthly things that try to hold me down.
I refuse to let conditions limit my faith,
So I rise above each and every obstacle.

Chorus
I choose to rise above the things of this world
And fly higher than the clouds of doubt and fear.
When I rise above, nothing is impossible;
All my dreams are attainable, it's clear,
By rising above.

Ending
[I choose to rise above.]-
--It's yours for the asking.
-Call on the power.
-[I choose to rise above.]-
Rise on up.
-[I choose to rise above.]-
