Rise Up, My Child

Fallen child of God, bound by ropes of shame-
Unable to find peace, unable to seek My name.
Fallen child of God, held back by deep regret-
Unable to accept My freedom, unable to forget.

Rise up, My child, and see the love I have for you.
Let Me set you free – it’s what I died to do.
Rise up, My child, and know you’re perfect and forgiven in My sight.
Rise up, My child – your life was always worth Mine.

Fallen child of God, rising from your chains-
Knowing you’ve been bought, knowing you must change.
Fallen child of God, emerging from your sin-
Knowing I’ve forgiven every trace within.

Rise up, My child, and see the love I have for you.
Let Me set you free – it’s what I died to do.
Rise up, My child, and know you’re perfect and forgiven in My sight.
Rise up, My child – your life was always worth Mine.
Your life, was always worth Mine…

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I’m found; was blind, but now I see.

Rise up, My child…

  1. Hey! I know that song!I know what freedom from self-condemnation looks like, too, in large part because of Christ working through you.Mighty is the power of the Cross, indeed, and holy is the name of the Lamb that was slain upon it…Praise God for His victory!
