Lyrics

Faith Is Up To You

Written By: Arvian Nelson Duval

Chorus: There is no mountain too high, no valley too low for you to make it through
There is no situation, you cannot overcome, your faith is up to you
In the moments when you’re scared
You should not become afraid
To live your life anew
This chance is up to you

Verse 1: All through life, you have a battle
Stressful situations, mentality nah settle
Working hard to pay the bills
Meditating all night on the window sill
What you say and what you do
Someone is always monitoring you
But don’t you worry, fuss, or fight
Because the misery, won’t last all night

Chorus: There is no mountain too high, no valley too low for you to make it through
There is no situation, you cannot overcome, your faith is up to you
In the moments when you’re scared
You should not become afraid
To live your life anew
This chance is up to you

Verse 2: Some may say you always worry
Working up a sweat, always in a hurry
Never take time to get some rest
The only way to work is when you’re at your best
Not enough hours inside a day
These are the things you hear people say
But in those times when you feel weak
Follow Jah’s words and turn your cheek

Chorus: There is no mountain too high, no valley too low for you to make it through
There is no situation, you cannot overcome, your faith is up to you
In the moments when you’re scared
You should not become afraid
To live your life anew
This chance is up to you

Bridge: Don’t let things overwhelm you
Just make up your mind and follow through
Because everything happens for a reason
And this just might be your season

Chorus: There is no mountain too high, no valley too low for you to make it through
There is no situation, you cannot overcome, your faith is up to you
In the moments when you’re scared
You should not become afraid
To live your life anew
This chance is up to you

Bridge: Don’t let things overwhelm you
Just make up your mind and follow through
Because everything happens for a reason
And this just might be your season

America The Beautiful

Written By: Terrence Nelson

America the beautiful, what’s happening to you?
Is this the place where people dream of starting a life brand new?
Then where is the pride first instilled in the red, white and blue?
America the beautiful, what’s happening to you?

America the beautiful, how could it be?
Is this where people come to with hopes to be free,
to have a life, have a choice and to raise a family?
America the beautiful, how could it be?

America the beautiful, quickly stop and think.
All our hopes could be gone just in a wink.
Our strength is abroad, stretched too thin.
Let’s focus back home and work from within.

American people, please imagine the sight
of seeing our flag through dawn’s early light.
Join me in making a united attack
directed at our leaders to bring the beauty back.

Come on fellow Americans, don’t run and hide
bonded together we’ll bring back the American pride.
Come on fellow Americans, don’t run and hide
bonded together we’ll bring back the American pride.
Bonded together we’ll bring back the American pride.
Bring back the American pride!
Bring back the American pride!
We’ll bring back the American pride!
