    hurt, beaten, abused you say you were
    I've been hurt but I will arise
    I've been beaten but I will arise
    I've been abused but I will arise
    you say you've been used and mistreated and so have I
    with the help of my Lord I will arise
    you say that you are tired and you no longer care
    you think that life just isn't fair
    I've been tired and I've been weak
    could there be something more that you seek
    you say that you have tried everything
    and the world just doesn't please you
    I've been lost and I know what you mean
    living a worldly life isn't as glamorous as others make it seem
    you ask me how I did it
    how did I survive
    well I heard the voice of my Lord one day
    say my child pick up your bed and arise
    from that day on I've been okay
    no longer in that bed of despair will I lay

    In Him, we can keep going when we think we're all used up. Such a positive flow.
