             G                  G/F♯ 
Lord we have seen the rising sun
        Em             C/E    Em
Awakening the early dawn,

And we're rising up to give You praise.
             G                     G/F♯ 
Lord we have seen the stars and moon,
                  Em                 C/E    Em
See how they shine, they shine for You.
           C                       G    D
And You're calling us to do the same.
Bridge:
        Am
So we rise up with a song,

And we rise up with a cry,
           C
And we're giving You our lives.
Chorus
          G
We will shine like stars in the universe,
          D/F♯ 
Holding out Your truth in the darkest place.
         Am7
We'll be living for Your glory,
                         C
Jesus we'll be living for Your glory. [1st time to Verse.][Last time to Coda]
        G
We will burn so bright with Your praise, O God,
      D/F♯ 
And declare Your light to this broken world.

We'll be living for Your glory,
                C
Jesus, we'll be living for Your glory.
Coda:
         Am7
So we rise up with a song,
          G/B
And we rise up with a cry,
           C
And we're giving You our lives;
                    G    G7sus4
Jesus, we will shine.
Mid section:
         Am                           G/B
Like the sun so radiantly, sending light for all to see,
          C
Let Your Holy Church arise.
   Am                           G/B
Exploding into life like a supernova's light,
           C
Set Your Holy Church on fire. 
             G              G7
We will shine,  we will shine.  [To Chorus.]

LORD WE HAVE SEEN THE RISING SUN
Awakening the early dawn
And we're rising up to give You praise
Lord, we have seen the stars and moon
See how they shine, they shine for You
And You're calling us to do the same
So we rise up with a song
And we rise up with a cry
And we're giving You our lives

We will shine like stars in the universe
Holding out Your truth in the darkest place
We'll be living for Your glory
Jesus, we'll be living for Your glory

We will burn so bright with Your praise O God
And declare Your light to this broken world
We'll be living for Your glory
Jesus we'll be living for Your glory

Like the sun so radiantly
Sending light for all to see
Let Your Holy Church arise
Exploding into life
Like a supernova's light
Set Your Holy Church on fire

We will shine (x2)

So we rise up with a song
And we rise up with a cry
And we're giving You our lives
Jesus we will shine.
