Awake Arise Shine

Lyrics

Face of Unity Prayer

Great Forever Spirit, who’s breath gives life to all. We come before You. You are our Father, we are Your beloved. We ask may our people be one, may our red nations come together as one. All thanks be to you who have made us strong within the sacred circle, that we may be able to be a blessing to the world. We give thanks to You who made our steps in beauty guided by wisdom. Let us be as lights, let the red earth people awake, arise, and shine!

Rise Up

I hear a mighty army and there’s an uprising

I can see the glory, we’re on the move and we are marching

 

I hear a mighty army and there’s an uprising

I can see the glory, we’re on the move and we are marching

 

Rise up mighty warrior 

Rise up mighty warrior

Rise up mighty warrior

We’re on the move and we are rising

 

Its time to dust the armor and put on all the fervor

Its time to stand for honor no going back we’re moving forward

 

Its time to dust the armor and put on all the fervor

Its time to stand for honor no going back we’re moving forward

 

Rise up mighty warrior 

Rise up mighty warrior

Rise up mighty warrior

We’re on the move and we are rising

 

We are rising, we are rising

We’re on the move and we are rising

Awake Arise Shine

You’re awakening out of your sleep

You’re awakening from the fatigue

You’re awakening out of your sleep

You’re awakening from the fatigue

So

Arise and shine for my glory is upon thee

Arise and shine for I am soon returning

Arise and shine for my Spirit He is moving

Oh Arise and shine for I am come

I am calling out of your sleep

I am calling out from the deep

Oh I am calling out of your sleep

I am calling you to my glory

So

Arise and shine for my glory is upon thee

Arise and shine for I am soon returning

Arise and shine for my Spirit He is moving

Oh Arise and shine for I am come

“Sha'áłchíní nídoohjeeh k'ad nihaahoolzhiizh”

(spoken)

I am coming, I am coming

I am riding on the horse

I am coming, I am coming

I am shouting from the north

Hope

I’ll tell you about my expectations and some of my dreams

They all had their ups and downs and in betweens

But I made a choice to never let go 

Even in the darkest times I had this hope

 

Hope hope, anchor for my soul

Hope hope, never letting go

Hope hope, oh watch it grow

Hope hope, became what I know

 

Fear thought he had me down but I arose

Had all these chains to bind me but they broke

Now I’ll rise to the top I won’t go low

Oh because I’ve got hope I can know

Hope hope, anchor for my soul

Hope hope, never letting go

Hope hope, oh watch it grow

Hope hope, became what I know

 

All of these expectations

All of these unlived dreams

Hope out of love brought forth these things

Combined with faith I believe

Hope hope, anchor for my soul

Hope hope, never letting go

Hope hope, oh watch it grow

Hope hope, became what I know

In Beauty I Walk

When Are We

I see a desperate little child wanting to get out

I see the broken tears swelling up and falling down

I hear the bleeding of his heart screaming to be free 

When are we gonna reach out and be the change we long to see?

 

When are we gonna lay down our selfishness and pride?

And truly give of ourselves from our hearts and from our time

You know it’s not about us, me, myself, and I

Come on and reach out nows always the right time

 

When are we gonna reach out to a lost and dying world?

When are we gonna reach out to the ones who have been hurt?

When are we gonna reach out can you see it in their eyes?
When are we gonna reach out before we’re out of time?

 

I see a lonely girl searching for her worth

Longing for value from somewhere in this world 

Inside she’s reaching for a love she can’t explain 

When will you show her there’s a far better way?

 

When are we gonna reach out to a lost and dying world?

When are we gonna reach out to the ones who have been hurt?

When are we gonna reach out can you see it in their eyes?
When are we gonna reach out before we’re out of time?

 

I believe that there’s still time to 

Go reach out and be a light

I believe that there’s still time to 

Go reach out and be a light

 

I see a broken man swallowed up inside his drink

Hurt from this ‘ol life’s prejudice and schemes

There’s people hurting do they know they can be free 

How will they know unless its through you and me?

 

When are we gonna reach out to a lost and dying world?

When are we gonna reach out to the ones who have been hurt?

When are we gonna reach out can you see it in their eyes?
When are we gonna reach out before we’re out of time?

 

When are we gonna reach out to a lost and dying world?

When are we gonna reach out to the ones who have been hurt?

When are we gonna reach out can you see it in their eyes?
When are we gonna reach out before we’re out of time?

 

I see a desperate little child wanting to get out

Reach Who You Are

Reach who you are don’t be afraid

Let go all your sorrow just look away

You gotta keep on moving you gotta keep the faith

Cause look now you’re stronger than when you started your way

When you started your way

 

You look in the mirror what do you see?

All of those flaws that cause you misery

And here you think you’re ugly but is it really true?

What God sees is beauty and He still loves you

 

Reach who you are don’t be afraid

Let go all your sorrow just look away

You gotta keep on moving you gotta keep the faith

Cause look now you’re stronger than when you started your way

When you started your way

 

It’s not about all your failures its not about your mistakes

Its about how you stand up in spite of what you face

Cause you’re stronger than you think, You have what it takes

To reach for your goals and you can make it all the way

 

Reach who you are don’t be afraid

Let go all your sorrow just look away

You gotta keep on moving you gotta keep the faith

Cause look now you’re stronger than when you started your way

When you started your way

 

Reach who you are make your own way

Look towards your tomorrow bring it into today

You can keep on moving, you can keep the faith

Cause look now you’re stronger than when you started your way

When you started your way
