Katrina Song Rise Up


DEDICATED TO ALL THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE KATRINA, AND THE HEROES THAT CONTINUE TO COME TO THEIR RESCUE.

Rise Up Lyrics

We heard the storm was comin’
Katrina was her name
Some they fled the coastline
And others just remained
They said she had no mercy
She drowned out every cry
For some it was their longest night
For some their last goodbye

CHORUS:
Rise up above the water
Rise up and lend a hand
If strangers help each other
Like sisters and brothers
We’ll hold on till the precious
light of day
Rise up
Let us work
Let us pray

The Red Cross fed the broken
Texas opened up her arms
Reporters rolled the cameras
And kept us all informed
This storm brought out the worst and best
Both violence and love
Now it’s time to show your mettle
And to call on God above

CHORUS:
Rise up above the water
Rise up and lend a hand
If strangers help each other
Like sisters and brothers
We’ll hold on till the precious light of day
Rise up
Let us work
Let us pray

BRIDGE:
My little boy looked on
With teardrops in his eyes
Then he ran and gathered up
his change
He said, Daddy this is all I’ve got
But could we send it just the same?

CHORUS:
Rise up above the water
Rise up and lend a hand
If strangers help each other
Like sisters and brothers
We’ll hold on till the precious light of day
Rise up
Let us work
Rise up
We will work
Rise up
Let’s work
Let’s pray
Let us pray
