Rise and Stand 

Boldy march to battle lines

Chin up with visioned purpose

Armed with love and sacrifice

A selfish life is worthless

The voice that calls your heart to act

Is one of truth and honor

Your life was given for this day

Warrior princess, daughter

Remember childhood destiny

Recall your soul’s desire

Embers buried deep within

Now stoked alive with fire

It’s time to set the captives free

The seeds have burst in bloom

Open arms and steady now

The time is none too soon

Your were born in perfect time

Your people need a voice

The Lord has watched and prayers were heard

He honors your selfless choice

Hard lessons learned in secret places

Strength and might have grown

If you could see your beauty now

You are loved, protected, known

Rise and stand as who you are

Redeemed in Jesus’ love

Unafraid what future brings

Eyes fixed on God above.

(Inspired by Esther 1-10)
