Shai Linne - Lift Him Up lyrics

Hip-hop is the horizon where dark and light met
So the subject of my mic check is Christ's death
Spittin' for Jesus- I know it isn't the norm
But God knew me before I had physical form
He let me go my own way for a while
Then when He was good and ready...BLOWW! God made me His child
This helpless, rebellious bad fella- God grabbed from the cellar
And set me free like Nelson Mandela
The aim of the Healer- crack me 'til I crumble
Then send me back in the jungle to tame the gorillas
I can find you at the club mackin- smoking some herb
You'll find me at the coffee shop crackin' open the Word
When hope is deferred, schemes unfold
Responsibility was on the other line I put my dreams on hold
Still I'm His number 1 fan for His goodness and grace
'Cause like a stuntman Jesus Christ stood in my place

We're trying to help you learn a new route
Every rapper's a preacher only question, what's your sermon about?
For Christ, we'll stand firm and devout
Praying that you turn from your doubt
Until the day that He returns and we're out
And while we wait, we'll keep lifting Him up
Keep lifting Him up

Cats be "What's up with the Lord
The globe's full of corruption and fraud?"
Dog, the road to destruction is broad
It's no peace in the streets because no one seeks
You're seeking for God as much as a thief seeks for police
It's no doubt in my mind He'll soon strike down
'Cause God hates sin more than I hate hip-hop right now
We're forced to gaze at industry whores and slaves
I wasn't feeling most of them cats even before I got saved
They're more than depraved- no knowledge, Godless content
Constant barrage of pompous, contradictory nonsense
But Christ will be taking titles when He's slaying His rivals
For now, we'll stay in the Bible while we pray for revival
I used to be the type to say, "I'm clever and ill
Better with skill" my agenda- get the cheddar and chill
But now I endeavor to build since His love letter revealed
That Jesus Christ's resurrection is real!

And while we wait, we'll keep lifting Him up
Keep lifting Him up

A Holy God- that's a problem for sinful man
I keep my verse short because y'all got short attention spans
I'm loving His Redemption Plan
A hot solution- my only contribution is a empty hand
Through sovereign grace, we awake from dead sleep
Our faith we let speak through ancient techniques
No repentance, no faith- no everlasting life
Even if you cried when you saw "The Passion of the Christ"
Nobody I know that's liver (Jesus)
I got His goodness and mercy following me like cops follow black drivers
I serve a God who takes crazy drama out of lives
And turns baby mamas into wives! (Say Word!)
It's a major surprise how shady guys find favor in His eyes
Then He enables us to labor for the prize
In conclusion, we'd like to say that He's tight
Speak right, seek Christ and I'm out like three strikes

Keep lifting Him up
