Lyrics

 

RISE UP (MAKE THIS MOMENT LAST)

By Maria Daines and Paul Killington

From the land to the sea
From the mountain to the shore
We hear your voice
In your pain, in your need
In defense we are here
To lead you forth

For the moments we love
Are the moments we share
Forever more
And the freedom we give
Is our spirit relived
Ever yours...

Rise up and heal them, rise up and care for them
Rise up to the love in our hearts, rise up for the animals
Make this moment last

In this life we are one
Paws, hands and hearts
Hooves, feathers, wings
Nothing is lost if only we unite
Our song begins...

For the reasons are pure
If our kindness is sown in the wind
This moment shall grow
And onwards we go
And we begin

Rise up and heal them, rise up and care for them
Rise up to the love in our hearts, rise up for the animals
Make this moment last
