Chorus
Rise up O people, everyone together
Stand up for justice, make tomorrow better.

Repeat (chorus)

Speak up, speak up with courage
speak without fear, speak out together
speak out loud and clear

Repeat (chorus)

Speak out, speak out you women
speak out you men, speak out the people
voices heard again.

Repeat (chorus)

Speak out, people of vision,
speak out, people of faith
speak out, people of wisdom
keep our hopes awake.

Repeat (chorus)

Stand up, Stand up for your values
stand for your rights, stand for your children
Make their future bright.

Repeat (chorus)

Stand firm, stand firm all people
stand firm today, stand so that your courage and hope lead the way

Repeat (chorus)
