He is risen.

And so are we.

And so

we rise

and rise

and  rise

and rise!

Ahhh such

a wondrous,



doctrinal gem

that if dwelt upon

as we go through

out our days has

us living in the

majestic throne room

of our God perpetually.

He is dwelling in us,

King of Kings and

Lord of Lords.

And we are ever

so humbly,

so gratefully,

dwelling in Him.

And so we, as

sons and daughters

of the Heavenly

King of Kings

and Lord of Lords,

gloriously rise

through our

triune God’s

resurrection power.

And so we will

and can and

indeed should rise

in the midst of

joy, blessing,

pain, or sorrow.

And so indeed.

we do rise!

For He is risen.

And so are we.

For Christ is

our ever-rising

light and glory-filled

multi-colored sunrise

of victorious, jubilant hope

through all our days and

 throughout all eternity

as we will one day

joyously reign with Him.

For He is risen.

And so are we!

And so precious

church of Jesus Christ

with every step may

our hearts in gratitude

worship, adoration

and praise ceaselessly

and triumphantly say,

“He is risen.

And so I rise.”

Even though

we are all still

in our dusty

earthly state by

His beautiful grace

we rise from

glory to glory.”

Oh the blessed,

jubilant hope

we have in

Jesus Christ

our resurrected,

living Lord.

May we all boldly

and unashamedly

rehearse in our hearts

over and over again

this magnificent

doctrinal gem,

because of

Jesus Christ,

our risen Lord

we rise,

we rise,

and we rise

from glory ,

to glory,

to glory!

Amen, amen,

and Amen!
