Rise Up

Joel Chernoff

When you rise up

The nations will scatter

The nations will scatter

The nations will flee

For You are the giver of law

And You sit enthroned above all

For the Lord is the King of Kings

and victory brings

When you rise up

The nations will scatter

The nations will scatter

The nations will flee,

At the thunder

Thunder of Your voice

The Thunder of Your voice

The nations will flee

The nations will flee
