We were created by design
We were purposed for this time
A generation on the rise
We won’t back down

We are alive and we’re awake
Move in the power of His name
A generation unashamed
We won’t back down

We won’t back down
We will not be shaken
Church awaken now
We won’t back down
We will not be silent
Live our lives out loud
We won’t back down

We hear the cries of those in need
The world is waiting now to see
A generation who loves Jesus
We won’t back down

We won’t back down
We will not be shaken
Church awaken now
We won’t back down
We will not be silent
Live our lives out loud
We won’t back down
No we are not forsaken
Love is breaking out
We won’t back down
Nothing can stand against us
God is with us now
We won’t be back down

God is moving
God is doing something new
All around, all around
And we can’t stop now

God is moving
God is doing something new
All around, all around
And we won’t back down
