In the darkest hour, in the dead of night
As the storm clouds gather and the lightning strikes
And the thunder rolls and the cold rain blow
The future it holds, what God only knows

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end

You should have been on the level
Back in nineteen an' four
You could have found you a dead man
Lord at every turn row

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end

You should have been on the level
Back in nineteen an' ten
If they was workin' the women
Like they was workin' the men

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end

Now captain don't do me
Like you done poor shack
Now you done work that bully
Until he been stoned blind

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end

And now there's some in the kitchen
And there's some on the phone
And there's some in the graveyard
And there's some goin' home

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end

And I will rise up and I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall and I will stand tall
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end

And I will rise up, I will rise up
Though I be a dead man, I said, yes and amen
And I will stand tall, I will stand tall
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end

Until I meet my end, until I meet my end
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end
Until I meet my end, until I meet my end
Until I, I meet my end
