Rise Up and Serve in BSL – A new anthem for the Platinum Jubilee

In 2022, after 70 years of service, Her Majesty The Queen becomes the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.

To celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee HOPE Together and partners commissioned song writers Graham Kendrick, Mal Pope and the contemporary worship band Rend Collective write Rise Up and Serve.

Christian BSL are delighted to have provided the BSL translation and captions for Rise Up and Serve.
