Originally written on Feb. 1st, 2008.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish the constitution for the United States of America.

We the people, believe words are not cheap
If we pause for a moment before we do speak
It shows we have vision and judgment to lead
We are the people, all of us need

Rise Up, (rise up)

Hope, Child – In You, Child – We do Believe, Child – And Trust, Child

Rise Up, daylight breaks
We feel it in our bones, goodness sakes
We’ve got some work to do today, rise up, (rise up)
Today the groundwork we’ll lay, we rise up, (rise up)

Rise Up, (rise up) Lift our hands
Everybody get up now, cross this land
We’ve got our jobs to do each day, rise up
(rise up, rise up, rise up)
And our work will lead the way while we rise up
(rise up, rise up, rise up)

This is our moment
Day has broken
Rise up all, stand up tall
We look up from work
We are with each other
We work and live together
Life just works this way
Ohhh, rise up…
Ohhh, rise up, today!

Hope, Child
– In You, Child
– We do Believe, Child
– And Trust, Child

Rise up, (rise up) night is gone (rise up)
Stretch and look outside, look beyond (rise up)
[Stop the hope-child part]
We’ve got some cleaning up to do, rise up (rise up)
Now we dig in to something new, rise up (rise up)

Rise up (rise up), raise your head (rise up)
It’s time to drink (rise up) up life and then get fed (rise up)
So we can keep our body strong, rise up (rise up)
Tend to the world that we belong, rise up (rise up)

(2X)
Hope – We believe in
Change – We believe in
Work – We believe in
Us – We believe in

Rise up, (rise up), see our eyes (rise up)
Let’s pull each other close, (we will rise)
(We will rise, rise up today) mornin’s come
Let us work and hope and pray, To heal us some

(2X)
This is our moment
(We are rising)
Day has broken
(Daylight breaks)
Rise up all, stand up tall
(Soaking up the day it makes)
We look up from work
(We are rising)
We are with each other
(Light the way)
We work and live together
(Clear a path of hope today)
Life just works this

Ohhh, rise up…
Ohhh, rise up, today!

Gonna rise and help each other thru the day
It’s gonna make it easier this way
Gonna rise and help each other thru the day
It’s gonna make it easier this way

(4X)
Hope – We can believe in
Change – We can believe in
Work – We can believe in
Us – We can believe in

(2X)
Hope
Change
Work
With Us

We are the people, all of us need
Rise Up, (rise up)
