Rainbow Children
Recorded early 2001 and released as the 1st track on the album The Rainbow Children (October 16, 2001). A live version was released on One Nite Alone... Live! (November 24, 2002). Written by Prince.

 
With the accurate understanding of God and His law
They went about the work of building a new nation
The rainbow children

The wise 1 who understood the law
That was handed down from God long ago
Reflected the true meaning 2 his woman every day
And she surrendered her discerning of it n2 his care and keeping
Because she trusted he would lead the right way
Her children n subjection 2 her and she n subjection 2 the wise 1
The wise 1 n subjection 2 the almighty God
And 4ever is n subjection 2 God

Just like the sun, the rainbow children rise
Flyin' upon the wings of the new translation, see them fly, fly
The covenant will b kept this time
Just like the sun, the rainbow children rise

Oh
Rainbow children, it's time 2 rise
Rainbow children, it's time 2 rise

As prophesized, the wise 1 and his woman were tempted by the resistor
He, knowing full well the wise 1's love 4 God
Assimilated the woman 1st and only
Quite naturally chaos ensued
And she and 5 others were banished from the rainbow 4ever

Just like the sun, the rainbow children rise
Flyin' upon the wings of the new translation, see them fly, fly
The covenant will b kept this time
Just like the sun, the rainbow children rise

Ooh, just like the sun, the rainbow children rise (Ooh)
Flyin' upon the wings of the new translation, see them fly, fly
The covenant will b kept this time (Oh)
Just like the sun, the rainbow children rise

Who is ur real Father? The everlasting 1, mm mm
The 1 who came from nothing and yet from this 1, everything comes
The 1 who commands ur mama with the simple phrase 'I AM'
Mm mm
And every time that she obeys, she gives birth 2 the Son of Man
Who is this?
Reproduction of the new breed, leaders stand up, organize
Reproduction of the new breed, leaders stand up, organize

Uh, the agreement with every verse, uh, we keepin' souls
Never changing 1 piece of it n fear of what would unfold
The scales would then become unbalanced and thus begin the fall
The sin of 1 within become the sin of 1 and all, now c'mon

(Rise) Praise the Lord
(Rise) And He wants it
(Rise) Rainbow children
(Rise) Can't U see it?
(Rise) We need 2, we need 2
(Rise...) Oh... ooh... rainbow children
(Rise) Rise rainbow children
(Rise) Rise, hey
(Rise) Rainbow children...
(Rise) Come on, now come on
(Rise) Who's willin' 2 do the work, build a new nation
Rise rainbow children, rise
Rise rainbow children, rise

The wise 1 who understood the law
That was handed down from God long ago
Held fast n his belief that the Lord would bring him
Another 1 who loved him so
