Lyrics

I'm Gonna Rise
Nancy Short Tsapralis
©1977 JOHN T BENSON PUBLISHING CO INC / ASCAP

I'm gonna rise so high, now when the spirit spreads its wings across the sky
The Risen One is comin' to take me away, I'm gonna live forever in His kingdom some day
I'm gonna rise so high, now when the spirit spreads its wings across the sky
The Risen One is coming to take me away, I'm gonna live forever in His kingdom some day

Darwin's gonna wonder if something's amiss, when he tries to figure out how I evolved to this
Newton's gonna question his law of gravity, when he takes a look around and finds it don't apply to me

I'm gonna rise so high, now when the spirit spreads its wings across the sky
The Risen One is comin' to take me away, I'm gonna live forever in His kingdom some day
I'm gonna rise so high, now when the spirit spreads its wings across the sky
The Risen One is coming to take me away, I'm gonna live forever in His kingdom some day

You can have Huxley, Herman, Hess and Socrates, all the human knowledge and the worlds philosophies
I found a higher law and it's workin' in me, God gave birth to my spirit and He set my mind free

Well

I'm gonna rise so high, now when the spirit spreads its wings across the sky
The Risen One is comin' to take me away, I don't even know how to fly
I'm gonna rise so high, now when the spirit spreads its wings across the sky
The Risen One is comin' to take me away, I'm gonna live forever in His kingdom some day

I'm gonna rise so high, now when the spirit spreads its wings across the sky
The Risen One is comin' to take me away, I don't even know how to fly
I'm gonna rise so high, now when the spirit spreads its wings across the sky
The Risen One is comin' to take me away, I'm gonna live forever in His kingdom some day
