    Rachel’s Anthem Lyrics

    June 2010 – Rachel Scott Music is proud to post the latest single written by Rachel. This was a project in the making for over 2 yrs. Though not many know the story of how this song came to be, it has now finally come to completion. We are excited to partner with Rachel’s Challenge.

    The song idea really came into being from an invite from Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Joy Scott.  His initial email to us, “Hi Greg, my name is Darrell Scott and I just happened to run across your wife’s vocals while looking at the Compassion International site.  My daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, was the first student killed in the 1999 Columbine High School massacre.  We have a nonprofit organization called Rachel’s Challenge that has become the largest school assembly program in America and Bermuda.  This year we spoke to over 1.3 million students and teachers.  You can check out our website at www.rachelschallenge.com I would just like to explore an idea I had with you and your wife, if after checking out our website, you should have an interest.  You could call me at…, or email me back at this address.  Thanks, Darrell Scott” emailed 12/15/08

    From that email, and flying out to the Denver area to see one of the Assemblies, visiting the Columbine Memorial, reading their books, journals, praying and waiting, Rachel wrote an incredible song that we believe holds to the values of what Rachel Joy Scott was all about. Rachel was honored to be asked to partner with them in this way. We are excited to see her song be used to impact the lives of thousands of kids (and adults) all over the world. Oh and one more interesting fact… the writers of this song are recording artist Rachel Scott, and Rachel Joy Scott. Some of the lyrical phrases in the song are taken directly from Rachel Joy Scott’s journals. Enjoy.

      Rachel–this is so cool. I’ve read “Rachel’s Tears” and I’m sure you did too while doing your research. Thanks so much for doing this. Another book written about one of the other kids was “She Said Yes.”

      May God continue to bless your music and your ministry!!

      I had to do a essay on her, and also a book report. But I loved it, and I choose her, she has changed my life, and this song and herself is so touching, I actually started crying because of it.

      i think rachel joy scott would be very inspired that everyone is creating a chain reaction

      Hey, is there any way I can get the chords to this song? I play guitar and sing a little and I want to make a cover of this and play it for my FCA(Fellowship of Christian Athletes) group next week. This song has touched my heart and I know that Rachel is looking down from Heaven knowing that her goal to touch millions of people’s hearts has been acchieved. She did what many people wouldn’t do. She stood up for God and showed her faith.

      Today at my school we all heard about Rachel’s life and about how she died. We all were crying because it was just so emotional. She impacted on me immensely. Rachel is my hero. I wish i could have known her. She was and still is AMAZING. This is such an amazing story….. and i hope that others are also impacted from this to be like her. Rachel will NEVER be forgotten. Rest In Peace Rachel <33 xx

      Looking for accompaniment track for Rachels Anthem to be sung at our church. Where do I find it? Thanks.

      I love this song so much. I first heard about Rachel and Columbine 2 years ago, and even though I’m from the UK, it really impacted me. Rachel’s story and legacy have inspired me so much, and I want to pick up her torch and carry on. I might not have known Rachel on earth, but I’ll see her one day in heaven! Thanks for making this song as well, because it’s amazing. I listen to it as much as I can. :)
