Rise-Take-Walk
Based on John 5:5 – The Healing at Bethesda
 
Rise
Take up your mat
Walk
You are no longer crippled
By the past
By fear
By invisible chains that bind
I have healed you
On the Sabbath no less
I have broken the rules
Anointed you eyes with mud
Bathed you with living water
Removed your death shroud
Rise from the ashes now
Plunge into the sea of life
Walk off the weight
Let a new story begin
