Arise, Woman of God

Rise up, O woman of God

In what He has given you,
The things God has laid on your heart,
Rise up, go forth, and do.

Unlock what God has placed within,
The potential you have inside
The world is waiting for your release
To expand your wings and fly.

Arise in your God-given gifts
For this is your finest hour
Arise in the Lord’s holy might,
Ignited and empowered.

For God is calling you to come forth
To impact this world for Him,
Don’t hold back or limit yourself
Let His power arise within.

And take His message to the world
To those that have lost their way,
For you can surely make a difference
If you’d hear His voice and obey.

You shall be strengthened in the Lord
As you begin to arise,
Conquering those doubts that pull you down
And believe who you are in Christ.

For you shall surely be transformed
As, in you, God increases more
And become a woman of true excellence
Bringing honour to her Lord.
