Original Key: A


Verse 1:
          F♯m7                  D
There's a peace I've come to know,
          A                     E5
Though my heart and flesh may fail.
           F♯m7             D
There's an anchor for my soul:
       A             E
I can say:  'It is well.'
Bridge:
 A                E/G♯ 
Jesus has overcome,
           F♯m              D2
And the grave is overwhelmed;
    A/C♯          Esus4   E
The victory is won,
      F♯m               D2
He is risen from the dead.
Chorus:
              A           E2
And I will rise when He calls my name;
 F♯m             D2
No more sorrow, no more pain.
         A      E2
I will rise on eagles' wings
    F♯m              D2                A/C♯ 
Before my God, fall on my knees, and rise.
D2            A/E   E              Esus4  
  I will rise.     [1. to Verse 2] [2. to Mid section]
[Last time:]
D2/F♯          A/E    Esus4    A
    I will rise.
Verse 2:
          F♯m7                   D
There's a day that's drawing near,
          A                     E5
When this darkness breaks to light;
        F♯m7           D
And the shadows disappear,
         A                  E
And my faith shall be my eyes.
Mid section:
    E              D     A    E              D      A       Esus4
And I hear the voice of many angels sing,  'Worthy is the Lamb!'
    E           D       A     E               D      A       Esus4
And I hear the cry of every longing heart:  'Worthy is the Lamb!'
    E              D     A    E              D      A       Esus4
And I hear the voice of many angels sing,  'Worthy is the Lamb!'
    E           D       A     E               D      A       E
And I hear the cry of every longing heart:  'Worthy is the Lamb!'
A   E/A   D/A Esus4/A   D2
                          [to Chorus]

There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say it is well

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow no more pain
I will rise on eagle's wings
Before my God fall on my knees and rise
I will rise


Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

There's a day that's drawing near
When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

And I hear the voice of many angels sing
Worthy is the Lamb
And I hear the cry of ev'ry longing heart
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb

I will rise
I will rise
