Sneaky Jesus Song: ‘Rise’ by Katy Perry 

 |  31 October 2016

A ‘Sneaky Jesus song’ may not be a religious tune, but when you listen to the lyrics it could be mistaken for one.

The lyrics of Katy Perry’s song ‘Rise’ tell the story of a person who, when facing difficult situations, is able to ‘rise’ above them with the help of angelic inspiration:

I must stay conscious

Through the madness and chaos

So I call on my angels

They say,

‘Oh, ye of so little faith

Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it

Victory is in your veins

You know it, you know it

And you will not negotiate 

Just fight it, just fight it

And be transformed’
