LYRICALLY LYRIC-ED!


Its always wonderful to know the lyrics to your favourite songs! In a previous post on my '5 top gospels singers you don't know', I spoke clearly on listening to songs that carry Christ - like meanings. Any song lyric that is not in line with the word of God MUST be deleted from our phones! Any song telling us to 'shake our bombom', 'whine our waist', 'bow to the devil' etc is absolutely satanic and must not be found on our phones. Here are some of the lyrics to the songs of our favourite gospel musicians.

1. LECRAE

SONG TITLE - Background

Background
Chorus. [C-Lite]
I could play the background.
I could play the background.
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way.
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead, lead, lead.
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead, lead, lead.
And I can play the background, the background.
And You can take the lead.
Verse 1 [Lecrae]
It's evident You run the show, so let me back down.
You take the leading role, and I'll play the background.
I know I miss my cues, know I forget my lines
I'm sticking to Your script, and I'm reading all Your signs.
I don't need my name in lights.
I don't need a starring role.
And why gain the whole wide world, if I'm just gon' loose my soul.
And my ways ain't pure if I don't live according to Your Word.
I can't endure this life without Your wisdom being heard.
So word to every dancer for a pop star,
Cause we all play the background, but mine's a Rock Star.
Yeah. So if you need me I'll be stage right.
Prayin' the whole world will start embracing stage fright.
So let me fall back and stop giving my suggestions
Cause when I follow my obsessions I end up confessing.
That I'm not that impressive, matter of fact I'm who I are.
A trail of star dust leading to the Superstar.
 
Chorus.
Verse 2 [Lecrae]
I had a dream that I was captain of my soul.
I was master of my fate, lost control, and then I sank.
So I don't want to take the lead
Cause I'm prone to make mistakes.
All these folks that follow me gon' end up in the wrong place.
So, just let me shadow You, and just let me trace Your lines.
Matter of fact just take my pen.
Here, You create my rhymes.
Cause if I do this by myself I'm scared that I'll succeed.
And no longer trust in You, cause I only trust in me.
And see, that's how you end up headed to destruction.
Paving a road to nowhere. Pour your life out for nothing.
You pulled my card, I'm bluffing
You know what's in my hand.
Me, I just roll to trust You, You cause the dice to land.
I'm in control of nothing. Follow You at any cost.
Some call it sovereign will, all I know is You the boss.
And man I'm so at ease. I'm so content.
I play the background like it's an instrument.
 
Chorus.
Bridge. [Lecrae]
I know I'm safest when I'm in Your will and trust Your word.
And I know I'm dangerous when I trust myself, my vision blurred.
And I ain't got no time to play life's foolish games.
Got plenty aims, but do they really glorify Your name?
And it's a shame the way I want to do these things for You, yet,
Don't even cling to You. Take time to sit and glean from You.
It seems that You were patient in my ignorance.
If ignorance is bliss, its cause she never heard of this.

SONG TITLE - Lay Me Down                                                                                                                 
 
             
With this heart open wide
From the depths from the heights
I will bring a sacrifice
With these hands lifted high
Here my song here my cry
I will bring a sacrifice
I will bring a sacrifice
I lay me down
I'm not my own
I belong to you alone
Lay me down
Lay me down
Oh, hand on my heart
This much is true
There's no life apart from you
Lay me down
Lay me down
Letting go of my pride
Giving up all my rights
Take this life and let it shine, shine, shine
Take this life and let it shine
I lay me down
I'm not my own
I belong to you alone
Lay me down
Lay me down, oh oh oh
Hand on my heart
This much is true
There's no life apart from you
Lay me down
Lay me down
Oh oh oh
Lay me down
Lay me down
It will be my joy to say
Your will, your way
It will be my joy to say
Your will, your way
It will be my joy to say
Your will, your way, always
It will be my joy to say
Your will, your way
It will be my joy to say
Your will, your way
It will be my joy to say
Your will, your way, always
I lay me down
I'm not my own
I belong to you alone
Lay me down
Lay me down, oh oh oh
Hand on my heart
This much is true
There's no life apart from you
Lay me down
Lay me down, oh oh oh
Lay me down
Lay me down, oh oh oh
Lay me down
Lay me down

SONG TITLE - I See Him
 
I SEE HIM by Frank Edward

I can see Him from afar with fire in His eyes
He's standing by your door He's waiting for you

Chorus:
I see Him standing by the door
With fire in His eyes and healing in His wings to heal
Someone who believes so open up your heart
He's waiting for you.

Life is more than just a dream
How far can you see
What you say is who you are
When you believe you will receive {Chorus}

oh oh oh... should i go or should i stay oh
There is a fire in my eyes and healing in my wings oh oh yeah
Whatever you want is here today oh oh oh
Just open up your heart and let me in

And I hear God Speaking through my mind
He’s seeing through my eyes
With fire in His eyes to heal
Someone who believes open up your heart
He's waiting for you.

7. CECE WINANAS
 
SONG TITLE - Say A Prayer
 
I started to trust without fear
Knowing You'd hold me through the tears
Because of You
I've learned there's nothing love can't do
So hear me pray
Just a little help is all we need
Just a little light we can see
Just a little faith leads the way
For everyone who's falling in love
For every child that needs a touch
For all of the hopes and dreams that we share
And for the hearts that cry tonight, I'll say a prayer
How can one voice be heard?
I've got to tell the whole world
How much You care
'Cause no one has to walk alone
So hear me pray
Just a little help is all we need
Just a little light we can see
Just a little faith leads the way
For everyone who's falling in love
For every child that needs a touch
For all of the hopes and dreams that we share
And for the hearts that cry tonight, I'll say a prayer
I'll close my eyes
While I'm down on my knees
It gives me courage to believe
So I'll keep on believing, I'll keep on believing
For everyone who's falling in love
For every child that needs a touch
For all of the hopes and dreams that we share
And for the hearts that cry tonight
For everyone who's falling in love
For every child that needs a touch
For all of the hopes and dreams that we share
And for the hearts that cry tonight
For everyone who's falling in love
For every child that needs a touch
For all of the hopes and dreams that we share
And for the hearts that cry tonight, I'll say a prayer
 
8. MARY MARY
 
SONG TITLE - Just Cant Give Up Now
 
There will be mountains that I will have to climb
And there will be battles that I will have to fight
But victory or defeat
it's up to me to decide
But how can I expect to win, if I never try
I just can't give up now
I've come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe He's brought me this far to leave me
Never said there wouldn't be trials,
never said I wouldn't fall
Never said that everything would go the way I want it to go
But when my back is against the wall
and I feel all hope is gone
I'll just lift my head up to the sky and say help me to be strong
I just can't give up now
Come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe He's brought me this far to leave me
No, you didn't bring me
Out here to leave me lonely
Even when I can't see clearly
I know that you are with me, so I can't
I just can't give up now
Come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe He's brought me this far to leave me
I just can't give up now
Come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe He's brought me this far to leave me
I just can't give up now
Come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe He's brought me this far to leave me
I just can't give up now
Come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me the road would be easy
And I don't believe He's brought me this far to leave me
 
I Pray as you read these lyrics you get inspired and blessed in Jesus Name! AMEN!
