I'M STILL HERE
By Uriah J. Fields
No weapon formed against you, will prevail,
(Isaiah 54:17) says everything about God's
grace favoring me for a lifetime.
1. I've been buked and scorned.
My name has been scandalized.
Attempts have been made to write me
out of history
But truth which cannot
be made a lie has prevailed
for all times. --
As you can see! I'm still here!
2. Here's the secret to....
My survival and success.
My name means light of Jehovah.
I have been favored.
God's grace has prevented
weapons forged against me from
Hallelujah! I'm still here!
3. I've been scarred and battered.
My hopes the wind done scattered.
Snow has fiz me sun has baked me.
Looks like between 'em
They done tried to make
me Stop laughin', stop lovin',
stop livin'. ---
But I don't care! I'm still here!
4. I've passed seventy and eighty.
The length of years God promised.
Without regrets, life has been good.
My journey has not
always been easy but
grace has been sufficient,
through it all --
Thanks be to God! I'm still Here!
