  • Lyrics
  • Rise is a collection of songs loosely tracing the journey of someone finding faith in Jesus Christ. Skillet frontman John Cooper told New Release Today: "The song 'Salvation' is about feeling all alone, with nothing to live for, but reaching out for Christ, and Christ is now my reason to live. He is my salvation, and He is everything to me. That song is the climax of the record."
  • The track is sung by Jen Ledger, who has been Skillet's drummer since 2008. She also provided vocals for the Awake songs "Hero" and "Awake and Alive."
  • The Bible reading that precedes the song is from Isaiah 53 and is narrated by Cooper's daughter, Alex.
