Rise Up

In my dreams I saw the rock
No longer set in place
The grave that held our greatest fears
Was now a fount of grace
Awaking I still wonder
Could it be that we are free?
No longer bound by guilt and shame
Could peace our hearts now see?
Is it possible the God of all
Has made the crooked straight?
Can it be that fear and terror
Have lost the power of their hate?
The answer sounds from deep within
And from the heavens up above
Sin and guilt and guns and bombs
Are no match for selfless love
The world still turns and evil fights
To see hearts dissolve in fear
But the rock no longer set in place 
Declares the peace of Christ is here
So let us Rise up from our slumber
And live this life that Christ made new
Let us join the fight of love and grace
Making others’ dreams come true
