Lyrics

Dreams

Written By: Char McAllister

Verse 1
Dreams how do they become reality
How am I to find my destiny
Inspite, of other's when they don't realize
Blinded by the doubt that cloud their eyes
Giving up is not an option
Get your spirit in motion
All you gotta do
Got to believe

Chorus
Believe in your dreams
Don't give in
Don't give up
You can make it to the top
Just believe
I know you will
You will succeed

Verse 2
Rise to the challenge
With tenacity
Reach for an eternal legacy
Fly high above
The heartache of your past
Pain will come
But know that it won't last
With determination
Soar to your destination
Don't stop
Keep on going
Got to believe

Before the day I was born
God ordered my path
Now that I'm here He has
Saved and sanctified my life
I don’t wanna be nobody else Happy just to be myself
God has created me for His purpose
I'm a part of a holy nation
Peculiar people

Trying hard to turn me back

I can go boldly to the throne of grace, to Jesus only I sing praise, He’s a firm foundation, I’m a child of the King, He’s the only reason why I can sing, my life’s been, predestined, justified, soon I’ll be glorified, nothing you can say will stop me, nothing you can do will block me, God He lives inside of me

Do you know who u r?
Chosen to be blessed

Gonna keep moving on, Pressing my way, keep climbing higher everyday, No weapon formed against me Is gonna prosper,
God inside of me is greater
