Arise My Soul

Just as David encouraged his soul, I also speak these words that I have written to my soul. I pray it will also encourage and strengthen your soul, allow the wings of your soul to soar and carry you above whatever circumstances you may be facing today.

Art By: Mary Ann

Arise my soul within me
Arise, be well, be strong
For the strength within
Can now rise and begin
To take flight, to belong.

Arise my soul within me
Arise feel not forsaken
The maker of my soul
Is making me whole
Rise up, my soul awaken.

Arise my soul within me
Arise, and be blessed
For there is life within
And songs to sing
Rise up on eagles wings.

Arise my soul within me
Arise Holy Spirit I pray
May God’s spirit in me
Over flow in victory
Rise up, my soul be free..
Rise up, my soul be free.
