Shattered, but I'm not broken
Wounded but time will heal
Heavy the load the cross I bear
Lonely, the road I trod I dare

Shaken, but here I stand
Weary, still I press on
Long are the nights, the tears I cry
Dark are the days, no sun in the skys

Yet still I rise
Never to give up
Never to give in
Against all odds

Yet still I rise
High above the clouds
At times I feel low
Yet still I rise

Sometimes I'm troubled
But not is despair
Struggling, I make my way through
Trials they come to make me strong
I must endure, I must hold on.

Yet still I rise
Never to give up
Never to give in
Against all odds

Yet still I rise
High above the clouds
At times I feel Low
Yet still I rise

Above all my problems
Above all my eyes can see
Knowing God is able
To strengthen me
To strengthen me
Yet still I rise

High above the clouds.

    This is a beautiful song that touches the deepest part of your soul. Still i rise helped me to get through alot of tough times in the past and in the present. Yolanda adams is a lovely songtress and really makes this song come alive.

    I wrote earlier about my family health issue after issue.
    My youngest son endured all the hospital, doctor, police emergencies and every crazy issue which came with my husbands stroke, my health and his sisters health issues. It was so difficult i actually left for a few weeks at a time and prayed maybe this will help me clear my head. I remained sick over my husband. With my daughter well now i needed to take care of me. I prayed
    God would hold us together it seemed impossible. But here we are heare i sit working on family issues and planning a party for my sons birthday and graduation. Did i mention through all this he is ann honor roll student and an althelete? I am lifted becasue god gave him to us. Our older children are married and doing there best to by despite the crazy makings of this century. Yetstill we rise because god has not left us. We were given each other to get by despite what problems or what our eyes have seen... Brenda corliss of gilroy ca

    My last 3 years have been real tough. My eyes began to troulble me right before i was fired. I began school and began laser on my eyes.. Then my voice left me. Illness fell upon us like a dark cloud no sun... . My husband a few months later had a stroke, my daughter had been struggling with kidney faulure anda other issues w=ith her health. We have struggled to regain our daily tasks difficult hurried and often trodden with anger over loss and more loss. We are in the midst of change. My daughter is stable for the moment. My husband is no longer paralyzed. He remains a miracle with still some memory and depression. God has brought him, us very far. I stood by with all what i seen. Held on cried screamed and prayed to god to lift us up. He gave me four other children before our mishaps and so many loving family and friends, a wonderful church community and we are here risen. I lost my sight in my right eye but god has maintained my left eye and my voice... I will sing again soon in my local chruch... Still i rise above all my eyes can see... Brenda
