  • I'm the matriarch of your land
    When you need to take my hand
    Come into my arms, I'll keep you safe from harm
    I'll keep your precious heart

    Some people try to drag you down
    Take it from me, stand and be proud
    You're a warrior
    You're my warrior

    Be who you are
    Be who you are
    Know that life holds more than what you see
    Rise up little man rise up little man

    Fight for you and me
    Look into my eyes and believe
    Little woman we will fight, we will fight
    Little woman we will fight, we will rise
    I see you and me
    Take my hand and we
    We will stand we will fight, we will fight
    We will stand and together we will rise

    They'll burn you at the stake if you
    Don't act like they want you to
    But baby be yourself
    Do good and help the world

    Rise up, rise up little man
    Don't be scared I'm holding your hand
    Know that life holds more than
    What we see and what we get

    Rise up, rise up little woman
    Don't be afraid to risk it all
    Know that life holds more than
    What we see and what we get, I will Writer/s: Beyonce Giselle Knowles, Beyonce Knowles, Chauncey Alexander Hollis, Jesse Woodard, Sia Kate Furler
