William Mcdowell - Arise Intro Lyrics

  • [Spoken intro:]
  • Look around, tell me what you see:
  • Nearly a billion people into the 21st Century,
  • Unable to read a book or sign their names.
  • Illiterate, and unable to read, not even the Bible.
  • Look around, tell me what you see:
  • Earthquakes, natural and man-made disasters,
  • Political unrest, famine, war, poverty,
  • And disease all around us.
  • The truth of God being trampled,
  • And Jesus being scorned by a world
  • In desperate need to encounter him.
  • Tell me, what do you see?
  • Jesus said: You are the salt of the earth.
  • But what good is salt if it has lost it's flavor?
  • Can you make it salty again?
  • It will be thrown out underfoot as worthless.
  • You are the light of the world,
  • Like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.
  • And Jesus Christ, the only answer for the world,
  • Lives in you, and moves through His body, the Church.
  • Yet the world says the Church is losing it's influence.
  • This cannot be- not on our watch.
  • May the eyes of this generation be open.
  • One-sixth of the world's population is hungry.
  • Half of the world's population lives on less than two dollars a day.
  • Half of all the children in the world live in poverty;
  • More children die from drinking bad water
  • Than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined.
  • And water is the most abundant resource on the planet.
  • Look around: what do you see?
  • Church, how will we respond?
