They’ve knocked me down, but still I rise.
My eyes fixated upon the prize.
They punished me harshly, and refused to let me go.
I wanted to give up, but my spirit told me no!
Been beaten and battered, but I refuse to give in.
Cause something deep inside tells me I will win!
Some days my bones ache with sorrow and grief, and
depression holds me bound.
Those are the days God carries me, in Him my hope is found.
I’ve made amends with the past, I paid for my mistakes.
It’s just a matter of time before this weary season breaks.
I am not ashamed of where I’ve been,
Nor afraid of where I am going.
I will rise above adversity!
I AM AN OVERCOMER!!!!
