Another favorite...

This is perhaps my favorite song from the cd "Joseph-A Nashville Tribute to the Prophet".
Although, .... I have another one which I think is also my favorite...too hard to pick.
Anyway, to hear it, click here.
I blast this song in my car. Ashley loves it too. It's like our rock anthem in the mornings on the way to the busstop.
It just really helps me feel gratitude for Joseph Smith and his faith, and his courage to do the things he needed to do to help bring about the restoration of the gospel.

the lyrics:

THE RISING
Written by Jason Deere
I told my mother what troubled my heart

I saw the worry as she took me in her arms

I told the preacher, and he looked at me

And I saw the rising that never let me be



Oh the rising

(The boy, the faith, the prayers, the hate)

From weak things the great things

Are rising, rising

(The love, the fear, the fire, the tears)

The persecution, the spirit, the peace



The spirit of God like a fire it spread

Calling the nations put a price upon our heads

Running through darkness and running to light

Praying on our knees for one more day every night



Amid the rising

(The boy, the faith, the prayers, the hate)

From weak things the great things

Are rising, rising

(The love, the fear, the fire, the tears)

The persecution, the spirit, the peace



I don’t know all the answers but I do my best

To live up to the rising that won’t let me rest

Oh the rising…

Again, I hope you listen to it, I think it's pretty awesome.
