Rise

You can hate me with every sunrise

Despise me with every mountain you see

Loathe me with every breath

And vilify me in every story

Still I rise and pray for you

You can call me whatever you like

Repeatedly drag my name through the dirt

You can disgrace, curse it and spit on it

Do what it takes to relieve the hurt

Still I rise and pray for you

Your mind is filled with anger

Your heart with malice and scorn

Your soul calls out for peace

I can hear and feel her mourn

Still I rise and pray for you

I hold no anger

I have no ill will

I wish you only joy

Since first we met, and still

I rise and pray for you
