Right, right on, right on

One day I was feelin' low down
Was havin', bad thoughts like I won't be around
Was thinkin' maybe I should get out of this game

I thought that nobody wanted to hear me sing
I thought that nobody even knew my name
I thought that maybe 'cause it was I didn't lose weight
I thought that I had failed and I felt so ashamed

And not just at my music, but at everything
But then my momma said, "Don't you dare think that way"
And my sisters told me not to lose my faith
They told me, "Get on your knees and let God lead the way"
And then I closed my eyes and I heard a voice say

It told me "Stand up", if you want to be seen
It told me "Reach out", so you can catch your dreams
It told me "Cry out", if you want to be heard
It told me "Be strong and take heed to my word"

It told me "Stand up", if you want to be seen
It told me "Reach out", so you can catch your dreams
It told me "Cry out", if you want to be heard
It told me "Be strong and take heed to my word"

So from now on when I hear that voice say
Stand up, I'm on my feet and I'm showin' my face
Because I won't go quietly into the night

I will be strong and faithful, I will survive
I will be honest to me, I will try even when I cry
I will be humble but fearless knowing the Lord's by my side
I won't take life for granted, I'll live everyday like my last

I will make lemonade even when lemons are all I have
I will pay all my dues and tithes in Sundays
I won't break when haters test me, focused I will stay
And when I cannot hide from those low down days
I will just close my eyes and hear that voice say

"Stand up", if you want to be seen
It told me "Reach out", so you can catch your dreams
It told me "Cry out", if you want to be heard
It told me "Be strong and take heed to my word"

It told me "Stand up", if you want to be seen
It told me "Reach out", so you can catch your dreams
It told me "Cry out", if you want to be heard
It told me "Be strong and take heed to my word"

Yeah, now here comes a voice
Basically, live by, die by

Live by and die by the power of the voice
The voice of strength, the voice of reason
The voice inside of me, the voice inside of you
Holds the key to the answers to the questions

And so my story continues
But this time I am guided by the voice
Of love, to every step that I take
And every challenge that I face, and it says to me
