Lyrics:

Leaves the winter trees had worn make a stack on yonder lawns,
Picturesque in every stem she had adorned
Time and nurture sown within when her trunk had been snowed in,
Ever-knowing a new work would soon begin

I will wake, and I will rise, best in fighting the good fight
Worth the hurting and despair that I see
For what it's worth, all in all they're only fractures to my bones
For the day all my worrying shall cease
Let it be for the better in me

Every past that has been lain is never visited again
Unfit colors, turning dull inside their graves
From the valley I came through, denied by all but love and truth,
I subside all will by holding onto You

I will wake, and I will rise, best in fighting the good fight
Worth the hurting and despair that I see
For what it's worth, all in all they're only fractures to my bones
For the day all my worrying shall cease
Let it be for the better in me

See the day that lies ahead, a better light that will be shed
Proving truth unto the hope we have kept
And for the spears aimed for my sides, may I never turn my sight
And when I can't find reasons for it, You are my reason to endure it!

I will wake, and I will rise, best in fighting the good fight
Because Your grace is knit in every part of me
For what it's worth, all in all none are fractures to my soul
For the day fear and death shall surely cease
Let it be for the better in me
