Vickie Winans – Stand Up And Carry On lyrics

Verse 1
My life's like a circle
It keeps going round and round and round and round again
And I search for the purpose
I gotta wear my crown
And it seems like the farther I get
The longer the road I gotta travel
And everytime I get a situation raped up
Another one start unravels

Cause' I know the race isn't given to the swift
But to him that endureth to the end
I know that some test you win
Others you lose
All you gotta do is say to yourself
Stand up and carry on
When your greatest fears
When they run up on you
All you gotta do is say to yourself
Stand up and carry on

Verse 2
I done walked through the valley
With death looking over my shoulder
I remember when my mama told me
On my knees i'm as strong as a soldier
Slowly, but surely I realized my life was not in order
But one day he told me
All that I need was right around the corner.


I wish I had a dime for everytime
I tried to reach the light at the end of tunnel
But god stayed on my side
And now I know that I am gonna endure to the end


Stand up and carry on
