Original video
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 blows
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 river
Back in nineteen and four
You could have found you a dead man
Lord, at every turn row
(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 river
Back in nineteen and ten
They was working the women
Like they was working the men
(Oh, like they were 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 Shine
Now you done worked that bully
Until he been stone blind
('til he been stone 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

Now there's some in the kitchen
And there's some on the farm
And there's some in the graveyard
And there's some going home
(Yeah, 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)
And 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
