With Him We Shall Rise (This Hour of Power)

The devil, world, and flesh

All rage against God’s child

But mercies ever fresh

Will come when we’re reviled

As we go against the flow

Push against the tide

We grow and come to know

What it means to have died


For with Him we shall rise

His Word will give us wings

To soar o’er this world’s wise

With joy the Spirit brings


As we kick against the goads

God’s bridle we resist

We’ll stumble on the roads

O’er blessings we’ll have missed

For easy is the yoke 

and lo the burden light

When power we invoke

That comes through Jesus’ might


For with Him we shall rise

His Word will give us wings

To soar o’er this world’s wise

With joy the Spirit brings


So fight the worthy fight

Press on toward the mark

Go carry holy light

A beacon in the dark

We stand and persevere

Partaking of His power

The Kingdom it is here

And comes with every hour.


For with Him we shall rise

His Word will give us wings

To soar o’er this world’s wise

With joy the Spirit brings
