Liberty Rising

Out of the bitter ashes,
Out of the grief and pain;
We will rise in glorious victory,
Forever, God shall reign.

Out of the senseless sorrow,
Caressed by human tears;
We will rise and we will stand,
Immune to helpless fear.

As the Phoenix from the ashes,
Liberty will arise;
As God in His infinite mercy,
Wipes each teardrop from our eyes.

Cradled in the arms of God,
And held in the palm of His hand,
We will not fall to fear nor hate,
We will rise and we will stand.
