Many times in our life
We're slammed with attacks
We're thrown into a battle
We cannot face
But the truth is
We never go alone
The LORD intercedes for us
And so do our brothers and sisters
We lift their arms
So they can win
No matter the outcome
God is always victorious
The little birds in the trees
Sing a praise song
Their Creator provides them
With everything
What more could He
Do for you?
If your soul is crushed
Just laugh a little
See the hope that's stirring,
Your sun that's rising and shining
On your dark horizon
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Save your people!
Heal their cells
Renew their minds
Oh child of the King
Lift up your head
Do not let your spirit
Be oppressed
He holds every breath
In every lung
Of every chest
Because he's never left
Yes, you heard me!
Daughter of Eve, stand erect!
Your time is here.
Scream aloud a new psalm!
Of strength and endurance,
Healing and power!
You will overcome
By the word
Of your testimony
This is your jubilee
For being kept half a century
This is your celebration
Victorious warrior of Yahweh!
Dance and pray,
Rejoice and sing!
You are a Daughter of the King!
You're a Daddy's girl,
And your Papa
Loves you endlessly
