Rise and Shine

Little [F] Children, do not worry 
'cause you [Gm] still got lots of time
There's [C7] no need in walking backward, 
Turn [Bb7] around and rise and [F] shine
If your load seems heavy 
And you're [Gm] always left behind
Pick your[C7]self up from the ground 
And jump right [Bb7] back and rise and [F] shine

Chorus:
Rise and [F] shine in the early morning
Shine your [Gm] light out through the day
Makes no [C7] difference what they tell you
Stand right [Bb7] up and have your [F] say
Cause the Good Lord said He loved you
And to [Gm] Him you'll strictly find
Even [C7] though this world may use you
Turn [Bb7] around and rise and [F] shine

Look at how they did poor Jesus
Why they nailed Him to the Cross
But He died out there on Calvary 
So the world would not be lost
So no matter how they treat you 
If they slap you in the face
Just remember Jesus loves you 
And on that cross He took your place

Chorus
