08. Rise

Rise
by Building 429



 

What’s a boy supposed to see
When he’s staring in the mirror at 13
Where’s the man that he wants to be
He must be hiding behind the lies that he’s too weak

I was there when they pushed you down
Wiped the blood from your knees when you got up off the ground

No one ever knew you the way I did
They never saw the man you’d be
When they laughed at the awkward kid
No on else believed that you could fly
They couldn’t see the man you’d be
But it’s wonderful to watch you rise
What could make a child a man (help him understand)
When he’s looking at the scars that mar his gentle hands
Where’s the mercy that he needs
It must be hiding behind the pain that they can’t speak
(It must be hiding behind the cut that makes them bleed)

I was there when they pushed you down
Wiped the blood from your knees when you got up off the ground

I was there when they crowned you king
Wiped the blood from your feet when you hung from the tree

No one ever knew you the way I did
They never saw you in the child
As they laughed at his awkwardness
No one else believed that you could fly
They couldn’t see the man you’d be
But it’s wonderful to watch you rise

written by Jason Roy

Behind the Song:
'We spend our whole lives staring into mirrors that always show the same thing: who we are in that moment. Oh, how awesome it would be to see ourselves as the men and women that God is forming us to be. What hope, what peace would come from seeing the final result now! This song was written about a friend who was never given the benefit of such a vision. He spent his whole life being picked on and pushed around. No one ever saw Him the way his God did – they always chose to laugh at his awkwardness to hide their own shortcomings. I stood by his side in middle school, never knowing the impact it had on his life. After 13 years, I received a call to attend the wedding of the boy who I had befriended in middle school. It stirred in my heart a picture of what they were all missing. Taken a step further, it reminded me of how every time people crushed my friend, they were standing against my Jesus on the Cross. I wish they could all see him now.' - Jason Roy (Building 429)
