Lyrics

Destined to Survive

Written By: Soul Sister Sally

Sometimes I want to give up; put my hands up
Lord, take this cup from me
I can’t seem to get it right; do it right
What is wrong with me?
My spirit is thirsty and my soul is hurting
Frustration is beating me down

The things I do want to do
Are the same things I yield to
My flesh wants to be in control
But there’s strength deep inside of me
He pushes me to keep fighting
And I’ve got to get up from here for my breakthrough is almost right here

Keep pressing; Keep pushing
I can make it; don’t loose it
Keep striving; Keep fighting
I can win; this won’t break me down
Got to be strong; got to carry on
Can’t give up; keep holding on
You can do this; you are chosen and destined to survive

There are times the way gets hard
And life will leave some battle scars
But yet will I trust You
‘Cause You know how to comfort me when I face my adversity
So through these tears and all my fears, I’m running
I’m drawing near

(Chorus)
There were times I know I came so close to throwing it all away
All the pain in life, the darkness night
Even found it hard to pray
But I’ve come too far to give up now
So yes, I’ll stand my ground
For greater is He that’s within me
In He I find my destiny
(Chorus)
Oh! Destined to survive
Destined to survive!
