1st Verse:
When confusion creeps in, yo I always look up/
Dear Lord I need you now come give ya boy a hook up/
Because you got what I need, it gets me higher than trees/
Let’s get drunk off the Holy Ghost and offer up a toast/
To the one who provides me with my daily bread/
Thank you for the talents which you put inside my head/
Yea I glorify the lord ‘cause that what he deserves/
It’s time to dig deep into my spiritual reserves/
These rappers kill tracks, I give life to these beats/
Man I gotta spit my words and bring Christ to the streets/
‘Cause his life changing presence keep me from defeat/
When you depend on yourself that’s how you stay underneath/
But me I’m rocking wit the most high/
Oh yeah I’m bouta spread my wings n fly/
Lord please take me up to new heights/
Whose coming with me time to catch our flights/


2nd Verse:
How in the world do I cope with these stressful situations/
I need help and lots of hope, Lord my strength’s in your elation/
I won’t stop and I won’t fold ‘til I climb the Appalachian/
At the top of the mountain, I need all my dedication/
No longer being lazy ‘cause I came to ground n pound/
Jehovah yeah I praise thee and I came to sound the hounds/
Jesus wears the crown, He’s the one who holds me down/
Every time I come around, I’m never lost but always found/
I used to have my sin up, ‘til he purged ya boy with hyssop/
To forgive my life hiccups, make me strong like chin ups/
Back then I rolled the swish up, now to God I give a kiss up/
And the devil I just diss up, Elohim is my Bishop/
I used to doubt n fight, now I cry out every night/
Lord protect my only wife, and make us holy without strife/
I used to hurt like a knife, I’m on a quest like Phife/
I’ll let my God lift me up he wants to bless my life/


3rd Verse:
Please pray without ceasing and always stay believing/
I gotta keep decreasing while the Lord is increasing/
Jesus has blessed us, and we must now step up/
And into our calling to love like Paul in/
First, Corinthians chapter 13/
Verse, 13 the greatest is charity/
You know that love never fails ya, look at number 8/
When I became a man, I put my childish things away/
Pride within yourself goes right before destruction/
King Solomon realized the wise instruction/
Arrogance creeps in prior to a fall/
Lord we prosper in ya palace and find peace inside ya walls/
People please study Psalms and learn to be like David/
Who worshipped and repented when he thought he wouldn’t make it/
Always keep working, live ya life in love/
Be as wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove/
