We Will Rise

By Jessica Scott

We will rise.

We will rise to our feet

As a new nation,

 

We will rise.

 

We will rise to our knees,

As a new nation,

United,

Under fire from our enemies,

 

We will rise.

 

We will rise

As a new nation,

United,

Strong,

Indivisible by any

Except the one who made us,

Who keeps us bound together

In our humanity.

 

We will rise.

 

We will rise

To stand against those who threaten us,

Those who fear us,

Who fear the strength we possess;

Those who fear the courage we have

In our strength,

Our individuality,

Our indivisibility,

Our united commonality;

Those who fear

Our freedom.

 

Let freedom ring so all can hear

The glory we are given.

Hear the music in our voices

As we sing for freedom.

Hear us as we cry:

“We will rise!”
