2 Is Better Lyrics

(feat. J.R.)

[Hook]
I need you and you need me
We need each other
So let's agree- I'm not complete
The truth is I need you

[Verse One]
Two is better than one- you know that three is a cord
Let's get together and rally around the things of the Lord
Monday, Tuesday- after leaving the doors
Of the church house- when church is out we got a reason to form
A gathering- rather than shooting a breeze at the shore
Our pattern should be gathering to put our knees to the floor
Wednesday, Thursday- this is our season to forfeit
Some of our leisure time just to see Him perform
The wonderful works of our God got to be seated before
Him- I'm talking about community life where we can be strong
That's where we build each other up- because we in a war
And we're scooping the younger saints- just to see them mature
The discipline of discipleship should not be seen as a chore
Even though we (are) seeing them yawn, they seem to be bored
We've been interdependent beings, since seeds to be born
And isolation is not something that we can afford- we need each other

[Hook]

[Verse Two]
Before we're found in a hearse- you know we can't be bound to the earth
Now, I know this is kind of home- so I'm sounding berserk
But what I mean is if we're balanced- just as round as the earth
That we can have some casual talk but expound on His worth
Friday- Yahweh gives the power to shirk
The temptation of being idle after hours of work
In the library, my prayer is that we browse through and search
For our spiritual brothers and sisters- blouses and shirts
New friends, new family- gather around the church
Break bread, drink juice or wine and dine as a certain
Way to symbolize our bond as a body- our first
Priority is to love God and out of it's birthed
An affection for one another- we're to challenge and spur
Each other on to love and good deeds- admonishments, hurts
Now cut the superficial talk- let's get down to the dirt
And really help each other change- like what's down in your purse

[Hook]

[Verse Three]
Let's greet with a kiss- symbolizing that the breach has been bridged
Multicultural fellowships are distinctive and since
The Roman soldiers drove nails into His feet and His wrists
You know the walls that separated us have ceased to exist
Yes, yes- now there's peace in the midst
And family life is the only way that believers consist
'Cause we can sharpen one another read Ephesians the fifth
Chapter let's sit after service just to sing and uplift
we need each other

[Bridge]
Other, other- brother, brother
Sister, sister- family
Together, together- as one, as one
Let love, let love- knit our hearts

Civilian Lyrics

[Chorus]
I'm a civilian
My feet are planted
I'm on this planet
But cannot get too attached to this life
'Cause I'm a pilgrim
And so I'm building
Fulfilling the great commission
My eyes are fixed on the Christ

[Verse One]
We on a roll
Tonic told me to write from my soul
And not to think about the reviews, or the albums I sold
And so I did that
Laid back, prayed, got my focus right
Thought about what the culture needs, not just what the culture likes
Thought about the youth of the church, and got depressed like
Man, they only want what they see, look at their appetites
They only crave, for what satisfies for the moment
They can't see past their noses
Ain't thinking about the afterlife
Man, they don't want God, they want 50 Cent
They don't even want Christian rappers, at least not if he spends
Most of his time on stage, bragging about God and His ways
They really want, the gods of this age
And so they're bored, when they sit in church
You see them slumped in their seats- half asleep
Simply ignoring the literature
They want the counterfeit, like forging a signature
Man, they don't care, about the Lord and His worth
'cause

[Chorus]

[Verse Two]
I get so tired, of reading men in the Bible
Then coming up for air
Looking around- I can't find nobody like them
Sister girl's eye is on, buying the next item
Y'all know we're in the age, where idleness is an idol
Man, we need revival
Ambassador told me
To meet him in the kitchen
'Cause dude, look at their diet
It's sweets all week long
And I ain't talking about junk food
I'm talking about, what they're really desiring
Xbox, videos, girls paint their pretty toes
You know the type, that can't fall asleep till the city dozes
Slaves to their cell phones, radios
Or maybe over at a friend's, watching Ray Liotta on HBO
My generation can't be still, or sit calm
They skip Psalms, to go to the bedroom and watch sitcoms
Now, I know, that we exist in a tension
I just wish that we would switch our affection
I know the fight

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]
Ever since the advent, of the steam engine
Man, it almost seems like
Yahweh lost the redeemed's interest
To iPods, Internet, our God's infinite
Kids ain't a bit impressed, parents don't get it yet
And some of our pastors don't get it yet
Man, they think it's enough, if the kids are getting crunked
So they keep throwing skate parties and concerts
So, the kids know P. Diddy and Fonzworth
But nothing about God's worth, and that's a problem Houston
Let's not confuse it- part of God's solution is
The older scooping the younger up, hoping to produce a hunger
For righteousness in their souls, discipleship is the goal
I pray that the generation, that likes to listen to Hov
Would turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, to lift up their souls
Above the surface, I pray we would know His worth
And prefer the things of God, over what is bound to the earth

[Chorus]

Go Lyrics

[Verse One]
Got to get my weight up
Everyday that I wake up
Is another day close to the grave
Now there's a cross that I take up
Everyday that I wake up
It's good just to know that I'm saved
That puts a smile on my face
Just thinking about His grace
I've been saved since five years old
When momma told me to scrape
All the food on the plate
Plus the greatest story that's been told
She taught me John 3:16
By the time I was 16
I was broadcasting my faith
I was telling the good news
I knew that I couldn't lose
Especially if my behavior was straight
'Cause it's one thing to talk, it's another thing to live
Like Christ when you get with your friends
So you can show them how Christ, can transform a life
In addition to forgiving your sins

[Chorus]
Now if you're standing right here
And you're hearing me loud and clear
And when it comes to the message of Christ
You ain't scared
Let me hear you say- Go!
Come on let me hear you say- Go!
And if your in a good mood
And you know that you can't lose
If you talk to a person
And give them the good news
Let me hear you say- Go!
Let me hear you say- Go!

[Verse Two]
Sometimes it's beautiful
Other times I'm fuming
When I go to a funeral- why
Because the preacher that's ruling
The pulpit is fooling them
Pulling the wool over their eyes
So now what's a man to think
When in every single case
The preacher boldly exclaims
Though he never claimed to be saved
And he died from aids
That he's still in a better place
Now I leave confused
And the people leave confused
And the family is comforted, but
It's under the false pretense
That once a weekend
Is all that Jesus wants
So you know that it's our job
To open up their eyes
With the truth that's found in the script
So we can't afford to hide, the treasure that's inside
Let's bless the world with this wonderful gift
Let's give it to them

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]
Can't be ashamed, of going against the grain
Got to pray— lest we fall into sin
You know the sin of not, speaking the truth in the word of God
'Cause you're afraid of losing a friend
Now if you saw your friend
About to get hit by a car
You would run and push them out of the way
Because you love him, you would shove him
To keep the taker from shoveling that brown dirt over his grave
Now if you would go to great lengths
To save a man's life
'Cause you don't want to see them die on the road
Then tell me how much more
Should you tell him about the Lord
Because you care about the state of his soul
Now there is so much more
That I really wanted to say
But I chose to keep it simple and light
So keep teaching, keep preaching
The world they need Jesus
Much more than we need to be liked

[Chorus]

Incredible Christian Lyrics

[Verse One]
How could you be so borderline and bored out of your mind
When we're discussing the God that turned water to wine
Yeah, it's probably your diet- they say you are what you eat
There's a lot of stuff I almost ate but couldn't afford to dine
And I thank God that I chose not
A man is wisest when he knows that he knows not- don't, stop
Don't, stop cause you're incredible
Just cause it's edible
Don't mean that you got to eat it man- let it go
Cause your health is important
In the Kingdom of Heaven, beware of the king's leaven
The faulty views- the movie scenes are giving
It's influence is evil- even on screens brethren
So stand firm- stand firm
Stand close as God's living example- lights on lampposts
Modern day Daniels- great exploits for 'em
Before we invite em, we got to inform- now let's show 'em

[Chorus]
That we're incredible- Nat King unforgettable
Every believer better know, we're triumphant
So be strong in your weakness- week out and week in
Grab a buddy- then let 'em know

[Verse Two]
Big chips- nah, God prefers using the small chips
He loves when the score's 90 to 10 and you just got the ball stripped
He loves when the odds are against you- that's when it all shifts
Your strength for His- when you strip you give
Up all of the pride that's inside of you- so don't clench your fist
Or look at His ways with contempt- strip- just stick to the script
God is using them weak things
Like a stick for the split of the Red Sea or the reed
It makes no difference which
One it was or when it was it was a miracle switch
Switch-
Switch over to the Gideonites- y'all remember Gideon, right
Good man, weak clan- yet, God told Gideon fight
Then God told Gideon to slice-
His men down to 300- we want it fair
But God got the glory when the smallest clan smashed the Midianites
That's like the disciples- two fish, five new loaves
Fed thousands through the God who chose
Young David out of His brothers- fighting the giant
Defying the armies of "I Am" with five smooth stones
And a sling- yeah, you know how God do His thing
Using the weak things of the world to put the strong to shame
And that's us- so when the wicked do a song in His name
Don't get it wrong- nah, God is not at all trying to hang
On their coat tails- the people of God boast cause their frail
Just because it's big- don't presuppose that that it will
Stay afloat- y'all remember when the ocean was filled
With debris from the Titanic- small boats set a sail
And got people safe to shore- they embraced the oar
I'm done teaching- I'ma erase the board
But before I go
I just want to know that the faith is a paradox
Grab a trumpet and blow- now let's show 'em

[Chorus]

Legacy Lyrics

[Intro]
This song is a tribute
To the families and loved ones of Cassie and Rachel
The two young ladies that were martyred
At the incident at Columbine High School in 1999

[Verse One]
Who would have known that a couple of guys from Columbine
Would come from behind- put guns to the spine
Of some innocent people- the teachers, the students
The feet of the teachers are screeching through rooms
The mood has been set by the fear of the villains
The bombs and the threats are by Eric and Dillon
America's villains- generic you're feeling
It is not- it is the plot for a pair that is chilling
In the glorious heavens, standing for Christ in a crisis
I know that it's rare what I'm feeling
Excitement incited- declaring the Pilgrims'
Faith and their fate I'ma share with my children
Cassie and Rachel, the past of the patrons
That passed through the ages in Africa, Asia
The Master that saved you, the laughter, the hatred
Jesus predicted that the masses would hate you

[Hook]
So, don't think it strange if a change might occur
If it does, are you ready and prepared for the curve
And a turn for the worst- would you fight, would you fall
Would you die for the Christ, that's the price of the call

[Verse Two]
Frustrated by the snares and the toils, parents annoy you
Truth of the matter is we're arrogant, spoiled
America's soil has soiled us, sort of
And pastors insist on declaring us royal
And it's true that we are but we take it too far
To the point where we break and we take down the bar
And forsake all the parts of The Faith that are hard
To embrace after all we've outsmarted the martyrs
We race up the charts- if you trace it to the start
You will find that the way to escape from the dark
And your wake is to carve off the weight and the heart
Of the truth, until everybody loves you
Jesus said woe to you old and new saints
That hold a view that you can go through The Faith
With nobody loathing you, that's a view
That you only can hold when your home is the states

[Hook]

[Verse Three]
The bones that are picked are the bones that depict
That they combed through their homes with the stones and the sticks
The aromas- a stench- so they rose up against them
At home and at Rome- throwing stones at the Christians
Got a hold of them- gripped them, kicked them, scarred them
Saw them, sawed them- they were thrown in a pit
With the toads and the vermin- I'm rolling the clips
It's urgent the scourges- the groans from the licks
The anger, the stranglers, the hangers, the danger
For all of the Christians that rolled in a clique
Ended up in the teeth of the beast that would feast
On the saints that would preach- they were thrown over cliffs
This is not known to exist in the states
Or the place where the home is just bliss
This song is intense- 'cause it's truth
And I'm trying to convince you that no one's exempt
Yet no one's equipped
Got our phones on our clips
Our focus is both on our loans and our cribs
Our fitness- our business has grown in a pinch
Would you fight would you fall
Would you ball up your fist
Would you falter or march to your grave 'cause you're saved
And your life is in Christ and to die is to gain
Would you die in His name
For the rise of His fame
Despising the shame
'Cause you're promised to reign

On Duty Lyrics

[Chorus]
We (are) on duty- we (are) on them same old blocks
Different but look the same like plain clothes cops
On duty- yeah, we (are) some plain old pots
But you can find a treasure in us where the rainbow stops

[Verse One]
We thank God for the faith of the elders
That came up in the time of Martin Luther the King and the great Elvis
They ain't shelf us- held us up on their shoulders
Told us how to live godly- so all the people that trail us
Can truly testify that before God rested our eyes
We invested our lives- so for the rest our lives
It's gonna look like we (are) dressed in disguise
But the treasure's inside
And it's a pot of gold
Most of our peers think that God is old- just the man upstairs
Partly because we keep our God on the low
So they can't see how our God is involved in our human affairs
Yeah- yeah but since we're the saints
We gotta be mindful of the picture we paint
So every picture they take
They get snapshots of Holy Spirit filled Christians that got victory
Ain't

[Chorus]

[Verse Two]
We thank God for the faith of the older
Saints that have showed us the ropes
Holding us close to shape and mold us
They ain't despise, refined us looking for ways to remind us
Of the mind of God- so now when we look behind us
It's an army of saints
Young dudes broadcasting their faith
I'm forecasting by faith
Cause I'd like to see more of the people of God
Like the Latter Day Saints
Black tie, trench coat and a tag with their names
Or, the JWs, at the door before the Saturday games
Listen- you can't miss em- you know 'em
Probably diss em- you blow 'em off in a second
They show us up with a presence that's public
They ain't impressed with the public
And I ain't trying to give them more credit than what they deserve
But, even if what they believe is wrong
They got a faith that you can reach with your arm
We're being called

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
We (are) on duty- which simply means to be on call
To be alert, to be watchful, to be on guard
We (are) on duty- that's why we walk through the mall
With our spiritual sensitivities up to par

We (are) on duty- from the block to the walls
Of the barbershop where the talk is not godly at all
We (are) on duty- it's not Christian at all
So we duck every time the wicked try to pitch us the ball

They can't catch us involved- cause you know you're a shade
From the pencil in the picture that's drawn
Of His character, if you care about the picture at all
With each photo, we show the world depictions of God
In every context they find us- catch us involved
Being normal, being cordial- stitching the raw
Materials of faith and our culture when Christians resolve
That spreading the fame of Christ is our mission of course

[Chorus]

Our World Lyrics

[Chorus]
Welcome to our world
No killers, drug dealers
Guerillas, no villains
Christ told us that most of them won't feel us

Welcome to our world
No hustlers, customers
Everybody in the building
Get your hands up with the rest of us

[Verse One]
If The Game could give props to Biggie, Pac and Dre
And the whole rap world could give love to "J"
And they could pay homage to Jam Master Jay
And commemorate the heroes that passed away
Then I could proceed with what I have to say
And pay respect to all the godly men that passed The Faith
Yeah, they went ahead of us- now, the path is straight
And died so that we could have life passed the grave
From prophets to the priests- we trace it back to the greats
Take it back to the days when faith had a face
And not just a mouth when the saints grabbed the grace
And I ain't talkin' about the prayer before you pass the plate
I'm talkin' 'bout what taught them to stay fast and trade
The pleasures of this life for Ahaz's hate
Now, I know they "wasn't" perfect but play back the tapes
And history will show how the saints' path was shaped

[Chorus]

[Verse Two]
People got questions like-
How come ya'll don't talk about Martin and Malcolm
But y'all always talkin' bout Calvin and Luther
'Cause these are the dudes that introduced us to truth
And the fruit that's produced in us is the outcome
So from now until the day that we die
We'll occupy with the things of God while our mouths run
That's unique to the saints- you know how roots run deep in the faith
Let me explain what I mean
You know I mean what I say
We're following after the pioneers leading the way
Apostles like Paul and others that were labeled the way
It was either all or nothing- there could be no more gray
These were the writers of the Bible we believe in today
I know they're gone but not forgotten- when we read them their sway
Is so strong we say so long to the evil- I pray
That His people would read those leaders and say

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]
Y'all know we're the legs and feet of the legacy
Predestined to be- before the pregnancy
We're all just a piece of the puzzle- if I could speak for myself
I'm walking in the footprints that were left for me
Now, I know I just quoted one of their poets
But take note- I just stole it to help show them the recipe
How the past and the present- once plastered together
Led up to the path of our destiny

[Break]

[Verse Three Countinued]
Since the baton has been passed
We want to write 'em a pass and invite them to our world
Where the mind has been transformed
By the power of Christ, we draw lines in the sand
That would explain the unpopular stance
Like pro-life that wouldn't heighten the chance
Of being liked- do we care- I wouldn't lie to my fams
So, while the wicked sing songs that got them in a trance
We sing songs and hymns like the bottom of your pants
'Cause we're different- we bless those that hate us
While in the West Coast, they say let's load the bangers
Over-dress codes
no dress clothes
we're strangers
Saints in the foreign land
where the best road to fame is
Playing low
praying and saying no
To our fleshly impulses post weighing the pros and cons
We don't close our eyes- we stay sober
So you know we're opposed to wine
Or at least getting drunk
we propose to our wives
And say I do before we close the blinds
No boasting and pride, no boasting in "I"
Pray that you and I would be a poster child
In the Kingdom of God where Christ is Lord
We submit unto the authority
His righteous sword
Life in Christ
otherwise life is a bore
So we abhor evil
that which is a sight for sore eyes

Stand Lyrics

(feat. Flame & Lecrae)

[Chorus]
We gotta live it- oh
If we don't live it- oh
Then who's gonna live it- oh
Stand for the truth- shawty
We gotta walk it- oh
If we don't walk it- oh
Then who's gonna walk it- oh
Stand for the truth- wodie
We gotta say it- oh
If we don't say it- oh
Then who's gonna say it- oh
Stand for the truth- dirty
We gotta live it- oh
If we don't live it- oh
Then who's gonna live it- oh
Stand for the truth, now

[Lecrae]
Get it up, get it in, get it out
Don't sit on it- we know it's hard
Trying to rap for Jesus, believe us
From the block to the hood to the yard
You feel like Noah- huh, you tryin' to hold it down
But when you stop and look around
No one solid to be found
WAIT- don't grow weary man, listen close and hear me man
I know you feel alone, in your zone or your city man
But, all across the globe, Christians are getting it on
Stand for the truth, though it feels like you're standing alone
STAND- Grow in grace and reason
PREACH- In and out of season
CHRIST- Crucified, even if we get martyred like Steven
PRAY- for a faithful crew
RAISE- up a faithful few
Know we in this together, pray for us as we pray for you
LOOK, what you feelin', we feelin' but keep on buildin'
'Cause God is into revealing His glory using His children
Sometimes it's lonely but know that you ain't the only one
Standing up for the truth and anticipating the HOLY One!

[Chorus]

[Flame]
Begin blazing the trail if you can look and see 'em sitting on the job
Consistently dissing the God that done saved us from hell
Be standing examples with answers for seekers seeking salvation
Or sinners who swamped in they sin from circular situations
It's sad- I noticed you're weary- it's clearly a time to reflect
On the cross of the Christ in spite of how many times they reject
You've got fam in Dallas, Texas and fam in St. Louis
And fam that's in Philadelphia standing in this confusion
We brothers in love with the lover who loved us enough to embrace us
The least we can do is just stand in they face and then take it
The face of temptation the face of persecution
So face it we made it- just continue to stand and be suited
Because the Lamb has included
People like us to carry the truth and share in the truth in a land that's
polluted
In extreme measures, take pleasure in what the Father has done
Don't get weary in well doing if you in the Son

[Chorus]

[Da T.R.U.T.H.]
I'm not a quitter, I'm a fighter
I'ma fight since Elijah was taken high up
On a mountain of fire
Man- I'm inspired to stand
I take pride in my camp, Stay quiet— I can't
Pray private and clandestine
My plan is stay biased- the chance
To take I Am and champion His views
Man- it's so beautiful that, I pray, why is it scant
It ain't wisest to plant before plucking the root
Take Jeremiah for example, no punches were pulled
Saints rise up and stand, don't plunge in the pool
A blatant, obvious stance
On state college campuses, make a lot of them tense
So what, you ain't cool, stand firm in the faith
You can't swerve when they shake
You with questions that are hard, to answer in debates
The standard has been raised
Seven thousand ain't bowed to Baal
Man- get your hands up, if you don't follow the crowd

[Chorus]

Turn You Around Lyrics

(feat. Shabach)

[Verse One]
I'm like Isaiah- I got my eyes way up
Fixed on the person of Christ when I weigh up
Him against my personal life
My prayer becomes change me beneath the top layer
Now, not later
Why- why wait up
Don't you want to be like Him now- huh player
Don't you want more than a form of godliness
So it's more than obvious that the Lord is not playing
Yeah, I know you like to match
So fresh so clean- hair right in tact
Fresh pair of blue jeans, not an ounce of fat
But I hope you got a life to match
Get back

[Chorus]
Before Christ no change in me
But since Christ there's a change in me
Let Him turn you around
I'm not the man that I used to be
Don't think like I used to think
Let Him turn you around

[Verse Two]
I used to get high in a room at high noon
But I now spit for the most high on iTunes
See how our different lives come together- it so cool
To do it with a dude that didn't shoot a chrome tool
I remember them days I was anti-social
Configuring a plan to get your auntie's social
But as young man you could say I was postal
Doing dirt in the hood? Everybody's supposed ta'
I used to think: "God only helps those who help themselves"
I translated that- to helping myself to wealth
Everybody had a hustle and mine was money
40-grand on a Rolley- yeah, crime was money
When the law came around talking time and punny
People nick' an' diming it for me suddenly they got funny
You know- sin was my name stitched in the headrest
But Christ bled then He rose from the bedrest
Switched everything I listened to in headsets
Transformed and reborn with a dead flesh
Yes

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]
Oh- we are not the norm
Transformed and we can't shake the eyes of the Lord
Pants on- no entertaining or watching porn
Even when behind them doors in our college dorms
No we are not the same
Inside it's God- no locks and chains
Don't smoke, don't drink- our minds are changed
We don't write, 'cause we like the fame- No
We write for the right reasons
You got it right- we do right for the right reasons
And that's to bring glory to Christ
We ain't gotta take Maury's advice
We consult with the Lord
You know we walk with the Lord
And actually like to talk to the Lord- it's our daily bread
Ever since He walked through the door
And erased sin like chalk on the board
It's been on

[Chorus]

Welcome To The Faith Lyrics

[Da TR.U.T.H.]
Let's go- I know the culture will
Teach us to be self absorbed
We ain't supposed to be self absorbed
I know we live in America- in the era of the self exhorters
Where the music on the shelf's distorted
And the wealth is sordid
Sure as the locust will fly
Everywhere, we look the focus is I
But we got to say bye—bye why
'Cause in the Kingdom of God, you know, my plus I got to die
Takes more than I to survive, so we stand fortified
Salvation is ours- like four to five
Or six to seven
Got to stick with the brethren
Break bread, pitch tents together
And let's gather
Rather than stand alone
Don't stand a chance if we stand on our own
'Cause we're prone to stray
All affected when a bone is fray
We need each other that's been thrown away
Let's get it back now

[Chorus]
If you're ready to get it going
Everybody in the building says- welcome to The Faith
Where "the" is the definitive article and
God's got men and women with a heart of gold
