[NEW MUSIC+ LYRICS+VIDEO] John Olumayowa – Rise Up

by favouriteemusic

One of the most prolific Gospel recording artists in recent times has been Nigerian Christian Gospel artiste, Ibadan-based Singer-songwriter John Olumayowa. The singer who doubles as a pastor has released a plethora of music in the last couple of years, all with his trademark message of hope and worship.

For his brand new single “Rise Up” John Olumayowa says “On a fine Saturday morning, I was led to read Isaiah 60:1. The same passage where I got inspired to write my song “LET IT SHINE” which featured in my album “EFFULGENCE”. The passage made me recall my hard times, my state of hopelessness, and how God’s Superior power rose me up, set me on my feet, and settle me according to 1Pt5:10

The release of this song during this crucial time in Nigeria is to give hope to Nigerian youths who are hoping for a better Nigeria. Also for anyone facing one personal problem or the other.

If there’s ever been a time Nigerians need soothing worship with a message of hope because of despair it is now. In these past weeks especially with the Nigerian youths, things have gone from hopeful during the days of the peaceful protest to gloomy which took a very dangerous turn after the killings of innocent Nigerian youths at Lekki, an incident which is now infamously known as the “Lekki Massacre”. The event followed wanton destruction and vandalization of both public and private properties.

‘Rise Up’ produced by ADOOC is definitely a song for the moment capturing the restoration power of God in a soothing delivery from John Olumawoya with beautiful harmonies which has now become part of his music. As we listen to Rise Up we pray the situation we find ourselves as a nation never repeats itself and for God to take us from this place to a higher place.

IntroC’mon rise upIts your time


There is power in the name of Jesus

By anointing every yoke is broken

Every strange power should be silent

We taking over ambience for Chris

tAs I lift my hands in faith to pray

By the laying of hands I declare

Healing and deliverance in here

I proclaim victory by the power of God

In the name of Jesus you are healed

By His power I declare you healed

We are fighting

Right on the battle we ain’t tired

We ain’t giving up

In the name of Jesus we are stronger

We are powerful

We ain’t weak

All sickness go

All chains break

Affliction must stop

Every debt be paid

Every blind see

Every lame walk

Every dumb speak

Victory is yours

The Bible says Arise and shine for your light has come

Now is your time yo shine The Bible says again That arise, take thy bed and begin to walk

So therefore I declare to the life of somebody

Arise and begin to walk

In the name of Jesus
