Lyrics to After The Music Stops :

Yeah, I got a question, after the show, after the set, after the music stops, what’s next? Are we just writing songs or are we concerned with uniting a people to follow the great commission of Christ.
Yeah let’s get it, let’s go…

Back in the day I was a lunch line rapper, after that I guess I was a punch line rapper, then I got saved and sometime after, ya boy came back as a frontline rapper, and when I say the frontlines, that’s not a frontline, I’m out here preachin’ Christ on the frontlines, and no it ain’t about rockin’ stages ‘coz some of my engagements are out on the pavements yeah.
I’m out to take the bible, create disciples, who make disciples, disciple-cycles, that’s why I want the beats to knock so after the music stops you can meet the rock i pray, that you would know him well, this is like show and tell, it’s more than a show, I’m showing you Emmanuel,
So yeah I’m hopin’ that you’re likin’ the flow but it’s only so you could know that God I’m writing it for let’s go…

After the show, after the set, after the music stops what’s next?
Will there be fellowship, prayer, disciples, will you open your bibles after the music stops.
After it’s over, after it ends, after the music stops, what then?
Will you understand that Christ is King? Or will you just like the words we sing after the music stops.

I recorded a couple songs some fast some slow, so the listeners would know the importance of the show, the importance of the show’s not to excite these folks but make God’s truth relevant, ignite these folks.
Discipleship is our call but we make disciples, this is not a suggestion, create disciples. The teachin’ is a process, it’s not over night and it’s not a stage and a mic nah, it’s life on life Christ -
Walked with twelve, ate with twelve, talked with twelve, shaped the twelve, invested in ‘em well you could say that he made the twelve. Who made many more, who made plenty more, now it’s on you and me if there’s anymore.
1 teach, 2 teach, 3 teach, 4 teach, 5 teach, 6 teach, 7 teach more, this is what we’ve been commissioned, it’s the reason why I write, so that you could hear the truth, not so you can say I’m tight whoa…

After the show, after the set, after the music stops what’s next?
Will there be fellowship, prayer, disciples, will you open your bibles after the music stops.
After it’s over, after it ends, after the music stops, what then?
Will you understand that Christ is King? Or will you just like the words we sing after the music stops.

So, we write this for the right the speaker was righteous, and then we might check for a culture who likes the hypeness. Some say we keep it crunk, some say we hype man; we just wanna pump the resurrection of the Christ man.
We in the -burbs and the hoods that’s hostile, we share a common view like synoptic Gospels and you know we keep a couple young dudes around us and teach ‘em the same truth God used to ground us.
This is a lifestyle so, when the mic’s down I pray people follow Christ when they turn the lights down. I pray that everybody playin’ this song will be challenged by everything I had to say in this song.
I don’t do this for the money, I don’t do this for fame, I don’t do this so the industry can know my name, I do this and host to glorify Yeshua the King, if you’re feelin’ me you know you should be doin’ the same let’s go…

After the show, after the set, after the music stops what’s next?
Will there be fellowship, prayer, disciples, will you open your bibles after the music stops.
After it’s over, after it ends, after the music stops, what then?
Will you understand that Christ is King? Or will you just like the words we sing after the music stops.

Lecrae:
You like music from rap to gospel but ya prolly neva heard nobody rap the gospel

We got fam and the clique set the booth on flames St Louis others philly
Like Duce and Flame’s if ya lost in the flow don’t lose the name
It’s Jesus Christ the king of the jews my mayn
This ain’t entertainment dawg it’s timeless truth
Would you rather hear a song about shiny coupes, nope
Non-fat non-gat non-killa rap, 100% christ da blood spilla rap
Yall feelin that, rap wrapped up with the gospel, ay trip dawg run it back
Yall feelin that? Rap wrapped up with the gospel ay trip dawg run it back

Trip Lee:
If in our car you hear that boom-bep and you hear some dude’s rep
It ain’t dem folks that boast, it’s folks that tell you where the truth’s at
We don’t wanna hear about dimes and dope (nope)
We don’t wanna hear about nines and smoke
We don’t wanna hear about movin packs and foolish cats
Who lie and boast
We do wanna hear about Christ the king
Do wanna hear how lives is changed
We do wanna hear how God is pleased
And theology of the Bible mayn
This Jesus music turn heads, so turn it up and let em know
In all we do he’s first and, this Jesus music’s better bro (yeah)

Chorus 3X

Lyrics to I Did It For You :

I did it for you
I did it for you
I did it for you

That’s why I did it yea’ll
For all the listeners
Whoever be hearing this
That’s why I do what I do

I did it for you

Single mother low income riding the bus
Big momma making a fuss saying in God she trusts.
My uncles 20, I’m 10 taking gulps of gin.
He don’t realize that we all are engulfed in sin.
Gang bangers on the corner got me wanna be down
Take a bullet for some city on government ground
By 25 everybody locked or died
To busy playing around never looking ahead
Every funeral, cats get upset and cry
Turn their heads towards the sky trying to ask God why
But they never looked up till then
Every other day they concerned with the world and consumed in sin
Not Christ just heaven they want
They think clean means not trying to sling things out of their trunk
Nobody ever to them heaven was spotless and we all dirty
That’s why we need a Holy God to wash us

[Chorus:]
I did it for you

I opened up my life and shared my life
So that you can see we all need Christ

I did it for you

If you can understand my pain
Maybe you can see we all need change

I did it for you

Can view my life my pain my hurt
Man I hope this work

I did it for you

Sense Christ died for sin
I never be the same again

I did it for you

Young dude, I remember coming home after school
Changing channels from videos back to cartoons
Up late talking on the phone under my bed
So momma couldn’t hear some of the things I said
And it wasn’t all bad but it wasn’t all good
Even though momma was doing the best she could
I was a latchkey home alone for hours
Entertaining my sin And my soul devour
Pick up by the cops at the age of 12
And not because my momma didn’t raise me well
I was a drug baby big momma dragged me to church
Hated ever minute of it but she prayed it would work
I an’t never met my daddy so I feel all empty
Like why he never call or why don’t he come get me
And momma under legalistic teachings and lies
So she beat me and she tell me it was to keep me alive
a typical youth I mean A typical youth 16 agnostic and looking for truth
I lived for myself, No one ever told me the plan
God had to bring redemption to a fallible man
Good news really wasn’t good news to me
Cause I never new the condemnation due to me
And I wish somebody would of told me then
What it meant to know Christ and to be born again

[Chorus]

They say Mac got saved and X is a Christian
Well I don’t really know them but I pray they both listen
It’s hard trying to grow up in a sinful land
And you don’t have an example of a Godly man
Well hold on; just keep your eyes on Christ
When we enter in the world, man our lives alright
They say heaven has a ghetto but that an’t true
And if God has a standard then that an’t you and that an’t me
That’s what I learned late one night when a man named James White changed my life
He told me that Christ paid the price for sin
Every lie I ever told Christ died for them
See, I never knew I offended God I just knew I really wasn’t trying to live for God
And my sins all cost me, Yeah pretty costly
I couldn’t blame the hood for the death sin bought me
All that I could do was blame myself and realize there was no way I could change myself
So I trusted Christ with my lustful life
And he saved me that’s why I am trying to touch the mic
Yeah so if you ask who I am spitting this to, that’s right yea’ll I did it for you
And if you ask who I have written this to, that’s right I did it for you

[Chorus]

I did it for you, I did it for you
So I could show you that his grace is right here for you
I did it for you, I did it for you
So I could show you that his grace is right here for you

Lyrics to Run :

You know your boy, Crae, running for the prize, I’m gunnin’
the one that dont rust or break all of a sudden
The Holy Spirit got your boy doin’ a dozen
Push up, push up, come on, work it out cousin
I run from the flesh/it be tryin’ to rise
and I’m done with livin’ gettin’ drunk and high
I’m a son of El Shaddai, the most High, who most def want me to do more then get by
I look in the sky and I’m so inspired, to run for a God whose my soul’s desire
my sole desire to run for Jesus
and give Him all the credit like I run for visa
I’m done with pieces/I found my dime
I run to the wife that the Lord provided
and we decided that we would run together for God’s glory alone homie we ain’t lyin’
I run to the Word cause my soul is thirsty
no runnin from affliction though they may hurt me
I do preach wrath but I speak on mercy
and grace by faith, you can call me churchy

Run, this is your race, boy. Run, don’t stop.
Run til your blood vessels bust like a glock
Run like a Nascar run round the track
Run, boy, run, boy,

Naw I ain’t sweaty and my breaths pretty steady
My feet don’t hurt and my legs ain’t heavy
I’m still in the marathon, I keep the pace steady
Temptation is quick/but the Spirit stay ready
my eyes on the prize/yeah, they fixed on Christ
Hydrated in the Word but the joints are tight
that’s why I get with a coach, who can stretch your boy
who can push, pull, train me and test your boy
and blooka , blooka yeah you heard the gun
that means run off the blocks, run!
The Son is where I stay focused
Avoiding sin and I pass the baton to the faithful men
and we never run in vain or for finite prizes
so when the race is done there will be no surprises
The world says quit/we ain’t tryin’ to hear it
cause to quench our sin’s thirst is to quench the Spirit

We still in it, dawg
We can’t quit, ya’ll
all my cousins who runnin wanna stick wid it, ya’ll
Jezebel is jumpin/your path, you best run
They tempting you to puff, puff, pass/you best run
keep ya kicks laced, get your grips straight before you quit, you kick, this is the big race
forget a medal man it’s bigger than that
forget a 4.2 40 man you’re quicker than that
the Holy Spirit got the breath you breathe
so if the cramps kick in, it’s the all the breath you need
wait on the Lord to renew you man
don’t stop, keep going, you can do this man
keep the Word in your grip, keep the Word on your lips, keep a tight knit Christlike crew for fellowship
and before you see the end and the race is done
find some people who are seekin’ and teach em to run

Lyrics to Sent Me :

Send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
lemme go lemme go!
(repeat x4)

i seen it with my own two,
there’s no way i can show you
a perfectly poverty stricken people with no view.
And i bet you can’t believe this,
they never heard of jesus.
Heard young butler, lil wayne, and young jeezy.

No one’s signing up to go on missions this summa.
Rather sit at home and watch exibit pimp in a humma
while a nine year old is shot down.
No one’s screaming ‘stop now!’
no bridge illustrations for criminals who on lock down.

People deep in africa
looking for an answer bra’.
In china man,
they’re dieing man,
until they know who died for sins.
So look what grace did.
Not for us to stay here
inside our comfort zones
at home in mama’s basement.

Get out on the grind y’all.
Ain’t no better time doll.
I know y’all read the great commission.
Let me just remind y’all:
make disciples of the nations.
Teach’m to obey the lord.
Have to lead someone to christ before i face the lord.

Send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
lemme go lemme go!
(repeat x4)

hey! After, 1,000 years in the west and the churches
get’n bigger daily without understand’n worship. (say what?)
Some regenerate but a lot ain’t saved.
You walk outside and be surprised cuz the block ain’t changed.
And the numbers they be get’n me.
Something just ain’t hit’n them.
America ain’t christian they practice’n the ritual.
That’s why we should be mission though.
Hey, what you think i’m spit’n for?
The united states is die’n
and in the east is looking pitiful.

Some places if they catch you
they’ll arrest you.
They’ll serve you,
but they still need the word too.
The gospel should be heard too.
We claim we ain’t ashamed,
but we ain’t hit the block up.
Were in our christian bubble,
while our brotha’s get’n locked up.
Lord i wanna stock up,
pack a bag and walk up
in a country where my faith may get me shot up
anywhere i go, whether my city or far abroad,
i just wanna show’ christ the risen holy god.

Send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
lemme go lemme go!
(repeat x4)

i know they’re die’n in the streets over in the middle east.
Some kids sink in piece
others hold’n up a piece.
If the violence doesn’t cease,
then at least the deceased
might know jesus as their savior as their bodies hit the streets.
And i know this is a graphic view.
And i pray that it’s attack’n you.
Track’n you to act and do
what you see in the back illusion.
Mathew twenty-four and fourteen.
We should read it twice
before we think that life is just a battle
see we free in christ!
Look dawg! Life is more than church work and football!
What if you were dead and seen that christians overlooked y’all!
This is why we leave the couch
and leave the comforts of our house
to show a die’n world a god they’ll probably never read about.

The great commission says make disciples of all nations.
Have we even made them in our own nation?
Come on christians!
Missions exist because worship doesn’t.
People don’t worship the god who made them.
We’re ambassadors.
Let’s go!

Send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
lemme go lemme go!
(repeat x4)

Lyrics to Its Your World :

I know I’m not fit or deserving to do this
But I’m foolish
If I don’t spit to give you Godly influence
Like a student
Practise and prudence will you walk with me through this
As I give my feeble attempt at glorifying Yeshua
Cause He
Is the beginning everything came into being
By His being the being who created all other beings
We’re MCing
Due to His benevolent freeing, decreeing
He’s the almighty creator of everything that we’re seeing
There is none like Him
If you don’t like Him then He’ll use the liking of liking Himself to acquire just to delight Him
That’s why I write Hymns
My right hand use to write sin battle ‘gainst Him like I was (Shai-lin?)
And now despite sin
I give praise the God who made sunny days
To white lightening
It’s quite frightening
To sing “Who’s world is this” without proper enlightenment

He use intellegent design
Like eloquence confined
Life elements assigned by
Elohim my God
He left his fingerprints
You thinking that our origins are coincidence
Our cemetary alone makes evolution look ridiculous
And since our complexity is more than irreducible
The fact our design had a designer is irrefutable
I use science too to make a statement like this
The existence of an atheist proves God exists
He’s the owner
Holding the throne
Potent and strong
He smote any foe approaching Him on bolens* alone
But since he up-rose he told us to go on this road
Shown my a knowledge foretold
Spoken by prophets of old
The total opposite role
Chosen by populace goes
Down to the hottest abode
Total apocalypse bro
That’s why we’re rocking it yo
Hand these sounds to the proudest man
God has brought you in this world and he can sure take you out of it

You should already know who’s running it
Brotha you don’t want it
He made it in six but he’ll only take one to crumble it
The earth rumbles at the sound of his mumbling
He flooded it once but with Noah he made a covenant
So the next time he’s gonna be coming with flames
His antagonists don’t know what they’re up against
Return of the last Adam who’s rapping will smash men now holds together every last atom
And that ain’t even the sum of it
Matter of fact you could handle the half I’m only giving you some of it
But its still enough of it for you to come to grips
With the fact that it’s His planet you own none of it
So please consider how dumb it is
To take comfort in the momentary status you have and the stuff you get
He’ll blaze it up in the end you can trust it kid
But we ain’t bugging cause there’s another one coming you dig

The earth was so impressed wit His defeat of the grave
The ground did the Harlem shake the ocean did the wave
No longer enslaved now that I see the Lord
And God is so deep He causes hurricanes when He brainstorms
I switched teams me and Crae got traded on the same night
Same conference same sermon by James White
The light of Christ is a blazing one
I’m evidence that His Grace is amazing son
Man continues to overvalue his worth
Spends most of his time trying to conquer the earth
That kind of action only leaves you empty or hurt
Then you see your true value when you return to the dirt
$5000 casket, $500 clothes
6 months for the grieving 1 year to decompose
I’ve yet to find a human who can outlive the curse
While God sits in the Heaven, place his feet on the earth

Lyrics to Greatful :

Father, You’re so good
We just wanna thank You on this one, Lord
It’s all about You, Lord

Clap, Put your hands together
If you love Jesus Christ, put your hands together and Clap, clap
Put your hands together
If you’re in love with God, y’all, put em together

Lord, You’ve done so much for us
Look at the faith, You entrust to us and plus,
You’re benevolent
God, it’s evident
You’re the giver of the life that we’re cherishing
You walk on winds majestic flawless
You saved the lost, redeemed the lawless
I thank You for letting me know You
Fortunate that I should even get to behold You
Lord, I’m lowly
You chose me
to witness Your glory by being made Holy
You know me, my ins and outs
you calm all of my anxieties and end my doubts
Thank you to the Holy Spirit living within me
Though times I may grieve You, the Son has cleansed me
No longer fear the terrors of night
If 10,000 fall on my right, I’ll call on Your might

Lord, I’m grateful for all that You are to me
I’ll walk with you daily, but still it amazes me
How You never change, never change, never change
Your love, it stays the same, stays the same, stays the same

Goodness, gracious, Lord
Anybody in the hood ever taste this before?
Been chased by the Lord, been embraced by the Lord
Got me sittin back just givin’ thanks to the Lord
But even in the midst of that there’s plenty of little things I forget to add
All these little things I will miss so bad
So let me take a second and mention that
I appreciate the things You do
And worship is more than just trying to sing to You but still
You know we’re gonna sing to You
And say thanks for some other little things You do
Thanks for the mornings that You open my eyes
And I don’t see 20/20 but I see alright
Thank You, Lord, yeah, I can see that sky
You created with the sun, yeah I can see that rise
Thank You

Thank God I can rest in You
You’re perfect, my life I invest in You
Your mercy endures, Your Grace is sufficient
You’re holy and pure You gave me vision and
Some say they wanna touch the sky
But I rather touch the God who can justify
The ocean, the mountains, the clouds amaze me
I can’t believe I know the God that made these
Sometimes I can be that guy who takes for granted the breathe I breath inside
Yes, I’m fearfully and wonderfully made
These are gifts that you’ve given even to the depraved
And if your boy wasn’t saved you would still deserve praise, you’re the God of ages
I’m glad I can open your pages
And see with amazement all your wonderful ways

Lyrics to King Intro :

Lets establish that He’ Israel’ King
So in Matthew 1 and 1 and on the 1:17,
We see His lineage and trace way back into time
That legally He was fine in the Davidic line
And genealogically He’ still King of the Jews
Cause the Book of Luke exposes genetical clues
See a true King
though He didn’t do it in the physical,
He brought a new covenant to free ‘im in the spiritual
And after sometime,
Wise men from the east came looking for the new born king in the streets
I know some of you dudes may cruise a foreRunner
But Christ had the dude He used as a forerunner
And no promoter gunna cut it like the John the Baptist
You need publicity stunts so you datin’ an actress
A real King has somebody bringin’ the news
That his kingdoms ahead and they ain’t fit to lace up his shoes
So tell me who’s the one anointing all these so called kings?
They all self proclaimed and man, that’s a dangerous thing

The king’s a real shepherd dawg acts in peoples favor yall
Not a self seekin playa all about the paper dawg
Call em the Messiah, the anointed one the Savior, bruh
Caught Him on the humble but you’ll see him reign later bruh
These self proclaimed kings braggin cuz they ON CHROME
But twenty sixes inches is a PRETTY LOW THRONE
Like kids playin in they daddy’s clothes when he’s gone
The clothes don’t fit, and daddy’s comin back home
Really this is foolish mayn you don’t wanna do this mayn
The king of kings is comin back, the theocratic ruler mayn
What if you should pass away and see him on a laster day
Your reign don’t make a deal so really what is there you have to say

Chorus 2X
WHO DA KING? (HE DA KANG)
WHO DA KING? (HE DA KANG)
WHO DA KING? (HE DA KANG, JESUS CHRIST RULE DIS THANG!)
WHO DA KING? (HE DA KANG)
WHO DA KING? (HE DA KANG)
WHO DA KING? (JESUS CHRIST RUN IT MAYN!)

Lecrae
We talkin bout the Sovereign Ruler dawg. Ay Flame man, why don’t you enlighten us to who the king is dawg? Let’s get it

Flame
Oh how excellent is his essence we reverence his name (ooh)
While silly peasants we presently tryna steal his fame
You carry 45s AKs king of the tools
But you can’t make a day
You can’t take away from da king of the Jews
See what about the major day
When you face to face with yes you know who
We wanna be a king with bling and do major things
But He supremely rules
You must be jokin you smokin plus u buyin that Buddha (ooh)
Why defy him when you can rely on the lion of Judah?
Supreme ruler shinin brighter than Jacob the jeweler’s (ooh)
Jewelry, cuz it’s true indeed he’s savin us through the
Cross of Christ and that’s true
Follow him lose ya life and that’s true
Gain new life, ya got to let loose
Of your own throne and follow Jesus
Rollin big whips don’t make you no king
Rollin them spliffs don’t make you no king
Pretty mixed screens don’t make you no king
Smokin those kis don’t make you no king
See you can run a trap own a house and smoke black and milds (ooh)
You’ll be a king when you can do things like roll back the clouds (ooh)

Chorus

Lecrae:
Yeah we talkin’ bout absolute sovereignty, who rules over the earth and it’s entirety, who will be back to reign! Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus Christ is king of the kings, yeah, respect it

Lyrics to Infisible :

Lord it’s amazin all of the places that you put us, so amazin, the stages u put us on God we don’t want any of that glory Father God make us invisible Father we wanna decrease that u might increase John 3:30 ain’t that right Diamone? make us invisible it’s been hard though Father God through all of it i promise

Verse 1
I wouldn’t trade it for nothin the long nights long flights for nothin
I mean I’m sittin in the airport writin cousin
No I never woulda thought in all my wildest dreams
I’da seen all of the things I seen
I mean I seen Katrina she came through hungry
Took anotha city where desire is from ye
Cuz only 2 yrs back we came 2 share that
Glorious gospel seen em holdin they tears back
Now we got New Orleans in our backyard God is good
Cuz a few whoadies got saved since dey been in my hood
And we got 2 show em love wit our time & money
But for me, yea it was more time than money
But if time is money then I must be broke
Cuz i love 2 get it in wit people after the show
We talkin this places and covenants why for the love of it
Me me yeah I’m lovin it we should be lovin it

Chorus (Diamone & Lecrae)
Feel the power when ya reach the unreachable (the unreachable Lord)
But there’s more here than just the physical (just the physical God)
The best when ya complete with the impossible
Make me invisible, you’re visible

Lord erase me if I ever turned and lived for myself
Cuz your glory’s infinitely greater than my personal health
And Lord I know I’m not worthless you give me my worth
But I know I’m not perfect to lolly the earth
And can’t nobody do it like the way u do
Usin me and my whole crew to reach the world for you
And it’s true they watchin everything that we do
Yeah its true that we’re an illustration of you
I look at verse 26 in Genesis chapter 1
It says I’m lookin like my daddy the more i follow the son
And the more i follow the son all my days look brighter
Cuz he placed a hope within me got me feelin all excited
Got me feelin like a writer like B on the train (whatup BJ)
Standin up and tellin everybody Christ is King (Jesus)
If ya see me on the TV or the world wide web
Know that I be givin Christ da cred
I know why some people see me but I don’t trip
I pray the Lord will keep me focused on a missional tip
And use this music as a tool to get Christ inside of your dome
I can’t just say it on the mic I gotta do it at home

Chorus

Your boy ain’t a rap star, I’m nothin like Jay-Z or Game
I got a funny soundin name and I don’t wanna be famous
I don’t make a lotta change, my heart has been changed
I just wanna know Jesus mayn, to make it plain
It’s like I got a message penetratin my soul
It’s the wisdom the Father gives regeneratin my soul
I’m sold on being soled that the glory is his
I’m trippin that he would even make me 1 of his kids
Get credit for so much but the credit ain’t ours
My God how can I tell em this in sixteen bars
Prepare a phrase tear a page share a stage
But no I could never fully communicate your glory alone
And at home i pray we’d all be some regular dudes
Find a ministry we can share in while speakin these truths
I’m greatful that you know me if you send me i’ll go
Lord I’m dyin to serve and I’m livin to know you

Chorus

Lecrae
You’re visible…

Lyrics to Get Low :

Yeah, yeah, humility, humility
Get low boy
Get low girl
Humility, humility

I really shouldnt trust myself cuz without God I’m nothin but dust myself
So full of pride I disgust myself so I stay tryna crucify and crush myself
I ain’t tryna say I hate myself but my sin nature got me tryin praise myself
So I get low, prostrate myself
And pray to God that I don’t play myself, yeah
Folks actin like Nebuchanezzar
Like they feet don’t stink like they got it together
God have to break em down put em back together
Cuz he looks to the humble to find his pleasure
Whether, we missin hub caps or roll on dubs
The Earth is the footstool of God above
Check Isaiah 66 and face it bruh
We only significant because he raised us up
To get low

Chorus
Get low, get low, get low, get low, get low get low get low
Dis aint one of dem nasty throws I’m talkin bout humble yaself befo the Lord
Uh, Get low, get low, get low, get low, get low get low get low
You ain’t gotta touch the flo, but ya gotta give props to the God who rose
Get low

This easy don’t let me get comfortable, so full of myself I’m comfortable
Folks wantin you the radio pumpin you start feelin yourself and now the Lord gotta humble you
Make sure u do a heart check mayn
You trying to rep Christ though you reppin your name
U in it for his glory or you in it for your game
Cuz the Lord know the truth and if u doin it in vain
You think you gon miss yo chance?
You trust in the Lord over circumstance (Whoa)
Cuz God will open the do’, for those
Who don’t chase, ain’t hopin for gold
I pray this song soak in ya dome
So our God won’t have to leave you broken to know
That he’s searchin your heart and he’s bound to know
If you goin for his name or you goin for yo’s

Chorus

Check, Christ got low for days
He’s the God in the flesh we supposed to praise
But he made himself low like the folks he made
And he died so our God had him rose in days, yeah
And that’s the way you do that mayn
We submit to the God who can do all thangs
Call him el elyon yeah pursue that name
Not da money not the glory don’t pursue that thang, what
In a matter worthy of yo cause
You a Christian, humility, you know that dawg
Yeah i know its kinda hard eva since the fall
Humility hasn’t made much since at all
Everybody say it’s all about you–but naw
Don’t believe in the lies don’t trust a dawg
Just trust in the God who can crush us all
But to those that He chose—yeah he loves us all
Get low

Lyrics to Prayin For You :

Father God, I’m prayin’ to you for somebody, who knows you Lord but just hasn’t, hasn’t been seein’ you in the right view lately, Hear me out…

Father, I’m prayin’ for a friend he and I are pretty close, and out of all my friends for this one I’m concerned the most. He say he readin’ daily but he ain’t really learnin’. He been in church but say that he ain’t moved by any sermon. His face weak, he ain’t prayed in a week, he wake up and just weep with his face in the sink Lord, you gotta help my man, I’m prayin’ for him daily, he ain’t sinned but it just seem as if he goin’ crazy. He say he feelin’ trapped, can’t even head up the mall coz every lady’s half-dressed temptin’ him to lust and fall. He keep the TV off, videos just make him feel that he ain’t really nothin’ without money, girls and shiny wheels. The other day he told me that he felt less a man coz he ain’t have a five-year plan or a piece of land and man it’s crazy coz his family think so much of him, plus he got a godly wife who always showin’ love for him but he’s strugglin’, even though he talk to me, I tell him what to do but he don’t listen when he oughta’ be. I’m scared for him coz there’s people that look up to him, he got some younger siblings who been changed by what he’s done for them but is it done for him, Lord don’t let it be, if he don’t wanna talk to you then Father hear from me, is it done for him, Lord don’t let it be, if he don’t wanna talk to you then Father hear from me…

Yeah, I’m prayin’ for you, yeah, I’m prayin’ for you
Yeah, I’m prayin’ for you, yeah, yeah, I’m prayin’ for you…

God, his condition is worsen since we were last conversed and I’m with him now and he ain’t doin’ well and this I’m certain. He say he tryna’ trust you, doesn’t wanna disgust you but he was in the mist of sinners and did not discuss you and just today his anxiety’s got the best of him, he knows Christ but for hours refuse to rest in Him, he’s not the best of men but Lord I know he really loves you and I can’t understand why lately he’s not thinkin’ of you. People trust this dude, you could crush this dude, Father he needs more of you I pray you touch this dude, what can I say to him? I’m determined to pray for him Father empty and brake him I pray you’ll just have your way with him, coz there’s a change in him and the effects are strong, I pray you open up his heart before the next song and when he gets home, I pray he’ll open up the sixty-six book love letter you wrote and soak it up coz he ain’t hearin’ You and he ain’t feelin’ me and God I know it’s killin’ You because it’s killin’ me and matter of fact there’s somethin’ else he’s concealin’ see, the person that I’ve been prayin’ about is really me…

Yeah, I’m prayin’ for you, yeah, I’m prayin’ for you
Yeah, I’m prayin’ for you, yeah, yeah, I’m prayin’ for you

Lyrics to Death Story :

I’m blackin’ out, on my last leg/ takin’ final breaths’/ Overheard the doctor say I ain’t gonna make it, final steps/ In the zone half panickin’ half feelin’ gone. Hang on homie! My boys yellin tryna keep me goin. Little sister in the distance, I see her tears flowin. Where mommy at? She on the ground passed out cold. Aw man this is how it ends, death came quick. My God I’ll do anythang just let me live. I wanna pray but I can’t pray, I never really done it. I dont know if I should call Christ, Buddah or Mohammed. Gettin blunted earlier this evenin now seems wrong and my brain is searchin hard for any scripture or song. I’m havin flashbacks, now I remember, it was December. I was standing on the corner pitchin rocks in the winter. Young dude ran up on me thought he was a winner but he started tryna convince me all the ways i’m a sinner.

(Man, you never understood man. You’ve lied before right?You’ve stolen before right? Man you’ve already broken two of the ten commandments man. That qualifies you as a law breaker, thats sin man, it offends the holy and perfect and righteous God man, thats sin, you need a savior because of the sin man. I’m just tryna break it down for you.)

Havin a hard time breathin. But I ain’t leavin until I know what I believe in. Wait maybe it was Ak on the block who was tellin me Mohammed was the rock, nah, stop.

(You know man, you know Mohammed was the truth. You know what im sayin? Islam is the way to go yo.)

But ain’t Mohammed die? Yeah, dawg and they buried him, thats scary then cuz I don’t know if Allah really carries men. Let’s get back to Jesus. Coughin and wheezin, this world’s full of lies man, everythings misleadin. They told me dont be scared to die but dawg thats ridiculous cuz I dont know what happens to me next in this predicament. Its sickenin. God give me answers, give me clues, help me understand, who do I trust, what do I do?

(Okay we’re losin him, we’re losin him. He’s dying fast. Nurse! Help me! I need help over here. Hurry up!)

Ah, oh man. I can’t breath. I’m dyin. Can’t think. Wait, wait, Mohammed, Buddah, no, no, no, no, no, no, Jesus, Jesus. Okay, back to Christ, first he lived, then he died. Then that easter play I saw one time said he came back alive. And God so loved the world. What’s the rest of that verse? Think fast, I can’t remember, help me nurse! Whats John 3:16 nurse? “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son…” Gave up his only son, okay yea thats right. So whoever believes in him wait… who turned out the lights? Im dyin! Im dead! No my eyes went closed. I can’t feel my feet no mo and my sides is cold. God please im sorry for all the wrong that I’ve done. I know I been a terrible father and a horrible son. I see it now. I wish that I could change some things in my life, I really never took the blame for things. like lyin and stealin and hurtin and dealin. I’d quit it all if your willin and let me walk out dis buildin. I wronged you I see dat I wanna give in but I aint really sure if you’ve forgivin my sins. Well this is it, no more discussion to do. I don’t know much but I know I should be trustin in

Lyrics to Unashamed :

A yo man let that beat drop on em
Yea, oh you know I’m liking that right there
Wats good y’all
It’s yo boy Lecrae
Some call me crezy
I’m here with my 116 clique representing to you
We just want to put it down for the Lord Jesus Christ
City to city and state to state, we keep running into more 116 clique members
People who are unashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ
Let me tell you where we’re from dog…

[verse 1:]
New Jerusalem, that’s my home
Let me put it in a song, so you’ll never get it wrong
No shame in the message, that’s the reason I live (reason I live)
Christ up in every song, He’s the reason I’m here
All they rhyme about is guns, money, sex and drugs
Eighty percent of these dudes is fictional thugs
We don’t kill nobody, we don’t rob no stores
We don’t trap, we ain’t strapped, we don’t smoke that dro
We ain’t pimpin, we ain’t trippin, if we tippin on some fours
den you’ll probaly hear dat Jesus music comin out our doors(comin out our doors)
we ain’t ashamed, you can call us lame,
but everybody gotta die and stand in front of the King

[chorus:]
We unashamed, unashamed
Unashamed, unashamed
Unashamed, unashamed
Unashamed, unashamed
Unashamed, unashamed
Unashamed, we unashamed
Unashamed, unashamed
Unashamed, unashamed
We unashamed

[verse 2:]
Watch this so you can really know what time it is
God is resurrected and I’m here to glorify Him
Ma Jesus, Jesus, ma Jesus might make a great tune
But we gotta lead em dipset to the weight room
I gotta date soon, but it ain’t soon enough
Father keep pruning us, cause its proven we known for screwing up
I cant front cause the pressure is still thick
And when sin in looks like the pressure, I’m havin to turn quick
A sin sick, so merk it like John Owen
You know when Jesus the Christ you can pay him, but still owe him
We shoulda died and been buried for our wrong actions
Instead Christ died and carried them on his own back (What?)
This is a known fact, but some say that its fiction
This is our lifestyle, no its not a religion
See I survived death back in 2002,
And religion is not at all what got your boy through
Yea your boy Crayola, I don’t do payola
No floors full of baking soda, just Jehovah
I get played to the left more than I get paid to write
So I aint worried about eating dog, tryin to display the fight

[chorus]

[verse 3:]
You see me on the block, the ava void in the land
We look the same, but we different
We bring God to this thang
While being vocal by the Lord and not a piece on chain
But don’t get it twisted, its reasons these boys unashamed
How bout 39 lashes of beatings, they laughing and teasing
These blasphemous heathens reject the passion of Jesus
He fasted from speaking even with nails bashed in His feat, and the cross,
He gasping and wheezing, His lungs collect as He’s breathing
The chief priest stone in the court of this chief
My Prince of Peace minus the pipe who bought my grief so no more chiefin
But like the rims that hit the curb (curb) we call em shoulder blades
We got out crosses on our back like our shoulder blade
This is death and resurrection that turned about my direction
Stepping toward perfection had nothing to do with me (do with me)
But the gospel is the power and power been men to pow out
We powed in the pavement takin the message to the streets

[chorus]

Lyrics to Jump :

Verse 1:
Its the assurance of things hoped for. Noah built a boat for
Jesus took a beatin and his whole body was broke for.
Spoke for. Through it we know who the Word was wrote for.
Abraham had it, matter fact that’s what he’s known for.
Faith, ya’ll, through it we were saved by grace
If you got it, we can see it by the way you run the races
That means we can see it on your face
If the faith don’t act, then it really ain’t faith
And that really ain’t the case cuz faith ain’t fake
It’ll have you try’na act out the Word everyday
Every Christian has faith, its a gift; we should use it
Some distort the veiw of it and others just abuse it
It can be irrational and make you give your life up
This is for the cause of Christ and not to get a nice truck
Righteous, when you know you gotta trust God
When it seems hard, man, faith is a must have.

Chorus:
You gotta leap ya’ll (Leap wit it!)
You gotta leap ya’ll (Leap wit it!)
Take a leap of faith
You gotta leap ya’ll (Leap wit it!)

Verse 2:
Before you heard “Breath In”, “Represent! Get Krunk!”
I was tested in my faith, and i didnt know if I could jump
I was at my 9-to-5 try’na make a couple dimes,
But somethin in my soul was sayin that I had to rhyme.
I was rappin every saturday, teachin on Sunday.
8 A.M. again I’m back to work another Monday.
Man I was hatin it, I wasnt even fakin it,
And then came opportunity, but me, I wasnt takin it.
Show after show came; a couple folks came,
But leavin work to rap was risky like the dope game.
And mama mad at me, she say that it was bad for me
To spend my time in school just to rap, what a tragedy.
Alot of free shows, but I had to pay bills.
Lord, you know I wanna go, but can you show me what you will.
I wasnt chasin rap dreams, wasn’t try’na stack green.
God had my back against a wall like a flat screen.
Urgin me to trust, Lord I wanna, but I’m scared to.
Lord, I’m prepared to be broke, just to share you.
So I followed Abraham. I told the Lord to take my hand.
I took a leap of faith, and I ain’t never been the same agin.

You gotta leap ya’ll (Leap wit it!)
