We Rise


This powerful song by Jewish musician, ritual leader, facilitator, and educator Batya Levine (with creative collaboration from Nom Lerman) is a powerful invitation to action as prayer. Batya is co-founder and organizer of Let My People Sing, a non-profit organization that celebrates a spectrum of Jewish singing traditions.

We rise… humbly hearted
Rise… we won’t be divided
Rise…with spirit to guide us
Rise!

Chorus: In hope, in prayer, we find ourselves here
In hope, in prayer, we’re right here!

We rise, all of the children
Rise, elders with wisdom
Rise, ancestor surround us
Rise!

(Chorus)

We rise, up from the wreckage
Rise, with tears and with courage
Rise, fighting for life
Rise!

(Chorus)

We rise… humbly hearted
Rise… we won’t be divided
Rise…with spirit to guide us
Rise!
