A cry against sorrow, reaching to the light of day...
Rise and stand now - face the skies.
The time has come again to rise.
Do not falter, now, my child -
The time has come to face the wild.
The untaméd darkness lies in wait
The pain and sorrows of the years
Behold the nightmares and their bait
Ensnaring souls with their own fears.
Strength, my child, strength!
The time is now!
Don't lose hope and take a final bow -
Rise, rise and rise once more
Feel yourself rise from the floor
Until you know you can rise no more
Be brave, be brave, and higher.
Be bold! Tenacious, with iron will
And nerves of steel to face the night
With compassion and valour
Love and light.
Know this now, lest you forget
When you lie in the dark, in pain
Know in the morn, when all seems lost
The Unconquered Sun shall rise again.
