"Resurrection": A Song and an Experiment

We would like to recruit you to help us write our new Easter song. It's called "I Believe in the Resurrection" and it's based on a quote from Peter Rollin's post called "I Deny the Resurrection:"

"I deny the resurrection of Christ every time I do not serve at the feet of the oppressed, each day that I turn my back on the poor; I deny the resurrection of Christ when I close my ears to the cries of the downtrodden and lend my support to an unjust and corrupt system."
The chorus of the song picks up on Rollins' theme of affirming the Resurrection through action. It can be read and heard below. Now we're asking for your help in writing the verses. Feel free to share any ideas you have. A theme. A line. A rhyme. A whole verse. Or whatever else you might feel compelled to share. We want to write this song collaboratively with the online community. Please post your ideas in the comment section.

I believe in the Resurrection
And I affirm that it is real
Every time I stand my ground
For all those who've been trodden down
Every time I voice concern
For Those not able to be heard
Every time tears flood my eyes
For those who've no tears left to cry
Jesus lives in me
