Rise Up

by Holy Hintz

I’ve sat so long with my rusted tin cup
Begging for bread to survive
When Jesus came to me and said
I give you my cup, arise

Gratefully I accepted the cup He gave
And resumed my lot in life
Daily, I sat by the gates and prayed
For God to have mercy and provide

Then the Lord inquired of me
Why is it you beg for bread?
Do you not see the cup you received
Is made for the banqueting hall instead?

I looked at the cup I grasped in my hand
Silver bedecked with gold;
Once tin, rusted and old
My child rise up; I gave you My cup
I gave you My cup; rise up

So I grasped my God given cup
Went through the palatial gates
In my heart, I heard him say
It is time take your place

The cup I gave is for the wedding feast
Come and have your fill
I have longed to spend time with you
Come; enjoy your meal
