Stryper, “Upward push to the Name” Lyrics

Inspire one any other
Construct each and every different up
In a global of hassle
By no means say sufficient
Be sturdy and brave
Don't be dismayed
For the Lord your God
Is with you these days

God is our salvation
By no means be afraid
He offers energy to the susceptible
And energy to the enslaved
He is the God of mercy
However we simply cannot consider
He's the entirety
And greater than we want

We will't move down
Like a boat at the sea
As a result of we are too mighty
To fall to our knees
We struggle and we strive against
Possibility dropping all of it
After we may just win battles
And upward thrust to the decision

There is such a lot to be finished
However we hit each and every wall
We repeat our personal errors
And query why we fall
As a result of it is human nature
Exhausting to appreciate
That any individual would die
For everybody's sin
