For Verna. Look to the skies You will purify yourself. So many reasons To be alive. Look deep within For God's guiding light If you believe Then so will I. We are rising, Rising, falling As ocean tides. I'll hold you closer, So much closer, Come alive. Maybe the flowing wind Will dry our tears away. So many reasons To be alive. Look to the rivers Flowing deeply to the sea. Miracles occur, I'll testify.. We are calling, Rising, falling. We come alive. I'll hold you closer So much closer. We will survive.
