RISE AGAIN (WE RISE AGAIN) (Leon Dubinsky 1985) As sung by the the Rankin Family 1993 When the waves roll on over the waters And the ocean cries. We look to our sons and daughters To explain our lives As if a child could tell us why. That as sure as the sunrise As sure as the sea As sure as the wind in the trees. We rise again in the faces of our children. We rise again in the voices of our song. We rise again in the waves out on the ocean, And then we rise again. When the light goes dark with the forces of creation Across a stormy sky. We look to reincarnation to explain our lives. As if a child could tell us why. That as sure as the sunrise As sure as the sea As sure as the wind in the trees. We rise again in the faces of our children. We rise again in the voices of our song. We rise again in the waves out on the ocean, And then we rise again. We rise again in the faces of our children. We rise again in the voices of our song. We rise again in the waves out on the ocean, And then we rise again. And then we rise again. NOTES: The Rankin Family is a Canadian musical family group. They hail from Mabou, province of Nova Scotia (the same province as Rita MacNeil - see elsewhere in this ILP database for her work). The original group of five were made up from twelve siblings, all of whom were musically talented. The first group started singing in 1970. They performed Celtic music as well as jigs and reels. They won a number of Canadian music awards. Sadly, many of the members from the original group, passed relatively early in life. Raylene passed Sept 30 2012.
