My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.

MartinLutherMusicMartin Luther knew music has the capacity to move people.

If you young fellows were wise, the devil couldn’t do anything to you, but since you aren’t wise, you need us who are old.

Faith is a living, bold trust in God’s grace, so certain of God’s favour that it would risk death a thousand times trusting in it. Such confidence and knowledge of God’s grace makes you happy, joyful and bold in your relationship to God and all creatures. The Holy Spirit makes this happen through faith. Because of it, you freely, willingly and joyfully do good to everyone, serve everyone, suffer all kinds of things, love and praise the God who has shown you such grace.

But since the devil’s bride, Reason, that pretty whore, comes in and thinks she’s wise, and what she says, what she thinks, is from the Holy Spirit, who can help us, then? Not judges, not doctors, no king or emperor, because [reason] is the Devil’s greatest whore.

Rise Up, Parachute Club
(Rise up rise up)
Oh rise and show your power
(Rise up rise up)
We’re dancing into the sun
(Rise up rise up)
It’s time for celebration
(Rise up rise up)
Spirit’s time has come

We want lovin’ we want laughter again
We want heartbeat
We want madness to end
We want dancin’
We wanna run in the streets
We want freedom to live in this peace

We want power
We want to make it ok
Want to be singin’ at the end of the day
Children to breathe a new life
We want freedom to love who we please

*Chorus
(Rise up rise up)
Oh rise and show your power
(Rise up rise up)
Everybody dance into the sun
(Rise up rise up)
It’s time for celebration
(Rise up rise up)
The Spirit’s time has come

Talkin’ ’bout the right time to be workin’ for peace
Wantin’ all the tension in the world to ease
This tightrope’s gotta learn how to bend
We’re makin’ new plans
Gonna start it again

(Repeat chorus)
Rise up now

It’s time, it’s time, it’s time

(Rise up rise up)
Oh rise and show your power
(Rise up rise up)
But dance into the sun
(Rise up rise up)
It’s time for a celebration
(Rise up rise up)
Everbody’s time has come
Spirit’s time has come
Spirit’s time has come

(Rise up rise up)
Oh rise and show your power
(Rise up rise up)
All dance into the sun
(Rise up rise up)
It’s time for a celebration
(Rise up rise up)
Everybody’s time has come
Spirit’s time has come
Spirit’s time has come
(Rise up rise up)
Oh rise and show your power…
