Lyrics

This will be one of those songs that I’m spitting bout my Lawd
Money stays on my mind, but I’m nothing without God
God delivered me from pain not committing suicide
Rose me up from the bottom told me I should do this right
Speak to those don’t go to church and got a problem
With organized religion let ‘em know that I got ‘em
When you see something wrong and want to start fighting
Vernacular’s not sophisticated you struggle like me
Thinking does God hate me because I ain’t living right
I thought I was worthless my future wasn’t looking bright
what’s the point of church man pray God help me
til I learned later in life God never left me
get a grip get a hold get your life protect your soul
tell it loud, tell it bold God is not about control
it’s a love thang and it looks very radical
you can love anybody no God ain’t mad at you
Put your hands up now bring ‘em down low
Point to your neighbor now its time to show
Love to everybody we going up high
Saved By God, who came from on high
Put your hands up now bring ‘em down low
Point to your neighbor now its time to show
Love to everybody we going up high
Saved By God, who came from on high

I tried to live by the rules tried to be perfect
I came from the old school the only way I heard it
The world I was seeing didn’t care about a Jesus
I listened to preachers didn’t think that they mean it
Faith what is that…it make me look crazy
Christian what are those…that group folks want to hate me
We claim that we love, but we put people down
If you gay, not married, don’t have God in your sound
But I changed all of that and made a decision
Not to separate my music from my faith cause I’m living
Saved by God you can hate on me
Southern Black Gentlemen that’s what I’m gone be
Now I don’t apologize, its just time to open eyes
God is everything to me, Jesus help me do it right
Jesus walks, Jesus lives, Jesus there, Jesus here
In my heart no more fear, Jesus her’s Jesus his
Put your hands up now bring ‘em down low
Point to your neighbor now its time to show
Love to everybody we going up high
Saved By God, who came from on high
Put your hands up now bring ‘em down low
Point to your neighbor now its time to show
Love to everybody we going up high
Saved By God, who came from on high

God not about religion, God is more than your rules
God is bigger than a temple, a mosque, your church pews
God don’t love man more that women God don’t hate gays
God love you whether poor or rich, God don’t have a race
God don’t have a gender I believe God has a face
That’s when we all stand together and we start to play
like a child would they don’t care where you from
The Lord told me to go, and invite you all to come
Yes I rap the real stuff against all odds
But none of that can stop me, long as I got God
Don’t say my name in this song its not about me
Its about you and you God set us free
Stuck in bondage got low self-esteem
Don’t love yourself think no one loves me
God does so do I, you will make it if you try
Trust the one that came back after He died
Put your hands up now bring ‘em down low
Point to your neighbor now its time to show
Love to everybody we going up high
Saved By God, who came from on high
Put your hands up now bring ‘em down low
Point to your neighbor now its time to show
Love to everybody we going up high
Saved By God, who came from on high
