Squire Parsons – He Came To Me Lyrics

The gulf that separated me from Christ, my Lord
It was so vast the crossing I could never ford;
From where I was to His domain, it seemed so far
I cried, “Dear Lord, I cannot come to where you are.”
He came to me, O, He came to me
When I could not come to where He was, He came to me
That’s why He died on Calvary
When I could not come to where He was, He came to me
He came to me when I was bound in chains of sin
He came to me when I possessed no hope within
He picked me up and He drew me gently to His side
Where, today, in His sweet love I now abide
He came to me, O, He came to me
When I could not come to where He was, He came to me
That’s why He died on Calvary
When I could not come to where He was, He came to me
Yes, He came to me, O, He came to me
When I could not come to where He was, He came to me
That’s why He died on Calvary
When I could not come to where He was, He came to me
When I could not come to where He was, He came to me

Lana Del Rey – Will You Still Love Me lyrics

I’ve seen the world
Done it all
Had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant and Bel-Air now.

Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

I’ve seen the world
Lit it up
As my stage now
Chanelling angels in
The new age now

Hot summer days, rock and roll
The way you’d play for me at your show
And all the ways I got to know
Your pretty face and electric soul

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me when I’ve got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?

Dear Lord, when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man
When he comes tell me that you’ll let him
Father tell me that you can

Oh that grace, oh that body
Oh that face makes me wanna party
He’s my sun, he makes shine like diamonds

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful
Will you still love me when I’m not young and beautiful

Cowboy Mouth – Hole In My Heart lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah Come on

[Verse]
You say that I’m crazy
That might be true
But at least I’m sane enough to know better
Better than to put my faith
In the likes of you
When you say
“You really oughta just forget her”
Casual dismissal of all that I’ve known
Everything I ever wanted
To the man I’ve become

[Chorus]
I got a hole, hole, hooooo-ooole
A hole in my heart
I got a hole, hole, hooooo-ooole
A hole in my heart

[Verse]
You tell me you love me
I ain’t so sure
Love is something earned and not just spoken
How can I trust again?
When I’m knocked to the floor
You can’t always fix whatever’s been broken
I’m losing my faith
Like I lost it in you
Dear Lord, can you tell me
What I’m supposed to do?

[Chorus]
I got a hole, hole, hooooo-ooole
A hole in my heart
I got a hole, hole, hooooo-ooole
A hole in my heart

[Bridge]
Bringin’ me down to the Mississippi bed
Bury my body and cover up my head
I don’t wanna believe in the stars up above
Or the rising of the dead
I don’t wanna believe
I don’t wanna believe
I don’t wanna, wanna, wanna
But I do

[Verse]
I’m done with the tears
Done with the crying
Get busy living Or get busy dying

[Chorus]
I got a hole, hole, hooooo-ooole
A hole in my heart
I got a hole, hole, hooooo-ooole
A hole in my heart
I got a hole (hole)
A hole (hole)
Hole (hole)
Yeah!
I got a hole, hole, hooooo-ooole
A hole in my heart

Miguel – Now Lyrics

[Verse 1]
CEO of the free world now
Build your walls up high and wide
Make it rain to keep them out
That won’t change what we are inside

[Pre-Chorus]
Pick the fruit of your labor
Cultivate, plant your seeds now and watch them grow
Man, I’ll holla at you later
Let you find out what you’re made of
Just saying…

[Chorus]
Is that the look of freedom, now?
Is that the sound of freedom, now?
‘Cause it’s plain to see a man’s integrity
By the way he treats those he does not need
And it’s time we talk about it
Let’s not waste our common ground
We will fall for standing and watching, all in silence
Dear Lord, are we numb? Where we going right now?

[Hook]
No, not later, la, la, la, la, later
Oh, right now, oh, right now
Now, not later, no, not later
La, la, la, la, later
This can’t wait, no

[Verse 2]
CEO of the free world now
Should we teach our children hatred?
Chase the innocent, and shoot them down
It’s like we’re still running races
I’m just saying…

[Chorus]
Is that the look of freedom, now?
Is that the sound of freedom, now?
‘Cause it’s plain to see a man’s integrity
By the way he treats those when he don’t need them
And it’s time we talk about it
Let’s not waste our common ground
We will fall for standing and watching, all this silence
Dear Lord, are we numb? Where we going right now?

[Hook]
No, not later, la, la, la, la, later (La later)
No, right now, No, right now
Now, not later, no, not later
La, la, la, la, later
Oh right now, oh right…

[Bridge]
Now, now, now
Now, now, now
Now or never, we can work together
Now, now, now
Now, now, now
We only suffer what we allow

Now, now, now
For all the people
In Puerto Rico
Way down in Houston
For Flint, Michigan
For Standing Rock, oh!
Way down in New Orleans
For all of the dreamers
The black lives that we’ve lost right now
Now, now
This can’t wait, no
Oh, right now
Now, now, now, now
Now, now, now

[Outro]
We are the look of freedom, oh
We are the sound of freedom
We are the look of freedom
We are the sound of freedom

2Pac – Blasphemy

God has a plan, and the bible unfolds that wonderful plan
Through the message of prophecy
God sent Jesus into this world to be our savior
And that Christ is returning, someday soon
To unfold the wonderful plan of eternity, for my life and your life
As long as we’re cooperating with God
By accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and savior
And as the Lord does return in the coming seven days
We’ll see you next time here on This Week in Bible Prophecy

Tupac don’t start that blasphemy in here!
Makaveli, the new breed, and I remember what my pops told me
The new word, follow me, remember what my pops told me

My family tree, consists of drug dealers, thugs and killers
Struggling, known to hustle screamin’ fuck they feelings
I got advice from my father, all he told me was this
Niggas, get off your ass if you plan to be rich
There’s ten rules to the game, but I’ll share with you two
Know, niggas gon’ hate you for whatever you do
Now rule one, get your cash on, M.O.B.
That’s Money Over Bitches, cause they breed envy
Now rule two is a hard one, watch for phonies
Keep yo’, enemies close nigga, watch yo’ homies
It seemed a little unimportant, when he told me I smiled
Picture jewels being handed, to an innocent child
I never knew in my lifetime I’d live by these rules
Initiated as an outlaw, studying rules
Now papa ain’t around, so I gotta recall
Or come to grips with being on my enemy’s wall (rest in peace)
Promised if I have a seed, I’ma guide him right
Dear Lord don’t let me die tonight
I got words for my comrades, listen and learn
Ain’t nothing free, give back what you earn, no doubt
Gettin higher than a motherfucker, blessed and pleased
This Thug Life’ll be the death of me, see’mon, yeah

And I remember what my papa told me
Remember what my papa told me, blasphemy

Love for them that steal in the name of the Lord
Dem a tell ‘nough lie but holding my bird in a cloud
Using the name of the Lord in vein
While the people in the ghetto, feel ‘nough pain

We probably in Hell already, our dumb asses not knowing
Everybody kissing ass to go to heaven ain’t going
Put my soul on it, I’m fighting devil niggas daily
Plus the media be crucifying brothers severely
Tell me I ain’t God’s son, nigga mom a virgin
We got addicted had to leave the burbs, back in the ghetto
Doing wild shit, looking at the sun don’t pay
Criminal mind all the time, wait for Judgment Day
They say Moses split the Red Sea
I split the blunt and rolled the fat one, I’m deadly, Babylon beware
Coming from the Pharaoh’s kids, retaliation
Making legends off the shit we did, still bullshitting
Niggas in Jerusalem, waiting for signs
God promised, she’s just taking her time,
Living by the Nile while the water flows
I’m contemplating plots wondering which door to go
Brothers getting shot, coming back resurrected
It’s just that raw shit, nigga check it (that raw shit)

And I remember what my papa told me
Remember what my papa told me, blasphemy

Love for them that steal in the name of the Lord
Dem a tell ‘nough lie but holding my bird in a cloud
Using the name of the Lord in vein
While the people in the ghetto, feel ‘nough pain

The preacher want me buried why? Cause I know he a liar
Have you ever seen a crackhead, that’s eternal fire
Why you got these kids minds, thinking that they evil
While the preacher being richer you say honor God’s people
Should we cry, when the Pope die, my request
We should cry if they cried when we buried Malcolm X
Mama tell me am I wrong, is God just another cop
Waiting to beat my ass if I don’t go pop?
Memories of a past time, giving up cash
To the leaders, knowing damn well, it ain’t gonna feed us
In my brain how can you explain, time in D.C.
It’s hard enough to live now, in these times of greed
They say Jesus is a kind man, well he should understand
Times in this crime man, my Thug nation
Do what you gotta do but know you gotta change
Try to find a way to make it out the game
I leave this and hope God can see my heart is pure
Is heaven just another door? I leave this here
I leave this and hope God see my heart is pure
Is heaven just another door? And my people say

Love for them that steal in the name of the Lord
Dem a tell ‘nough lie but holding my bird in a cloud
Using the name of the Lord in vein
While the people in the ghetto, feel ‘nough pain

Love for them that steal in the name of the Lord
Dem a tell ‘nough lie but holding my bird in a cloud
Using the name of the Lord in vein
While the people in the ghetto, feel ‘nough pain

Love for them that steal in the name of the Lord
Dem a tell ‘nough lie but holding my bird in a cloud
Using the name of the Lord in vein
While the people in the ghetto, feel ‘nough pain

Love for them that steal in the name of the Lord
Dem a tell ‘nough lie but holding my bird in a cloud
Using the name of the Lord in vein
While the people in the ghetto, feel ‘nough pain

Our father, who art in heaven
Hallow be thy name
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
In earth, as it is in heaven
Give us this day, our daily bread
As we give up our debts
As we forgive our debt-ors
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us, un-evil
For God, is the kingdom, and the power
And the glory forever, and ever, and ever

Common – Rain (feat. John Legend) (Black America Again Album)

[Intro: John Legend]
The wind against my face, tells me that I must go
Can’t stay around too long before my tracks gonna catch me
When they do, I’ve got to be somewhere in LA
So I can look at the sun and get my thinking done
And if it’s gonna rain tomorrow, let it rain

[Verse 1: John Legend]
The last note I sang was indeed a false (?)
At some old and shabby bar, I never knew the name
But I knew I could and work that (?) all on my dreams
They tell me find that place, find that place

[Hook: John Legend]
And if it’s gonna rain tomorrow, let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain

[Verse 2: John Legend]
Deep in my destination, trying to find my destination
With LA so far away and I’m soaking cold today
Constantly it’s on my mind
I’m only halfway there, I’m not caring how much frustration
Oh, I’ve got to cross this nation

[Hook: John Legend]
And if it’s gonna rain tomorrow, let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain

[Verse 3: Common]
As the rain falls down from the heavens
Think of how far I came since ’87
Took my hustle and made it a weapon
I was always told "in the pain there’s a blessing"
Mistakes that I made, they mirrored the lessons
Talking with God, I asked clearer questions
Dear Lord, is this what I’m destined for?
If so? Then what am I stressing for?
We tight, then why can’t I let it go?
Everything gon’ be alright, it’s more than a metaphor
Let it rain cause it’s ancestral
Cleanse my heart so they can see the best in you
Let it rain and come down visceral
For those no longer here in the physical
Let it rain cause it’s like tears from you
Just like the rain, I’ll do what I’m here to do
Let it rain, I know that it’s purposeful
So that it can service you and return to you
Let it rain, let the rain surround me
And never drown me, I was lost when it found me
Now in a dream is where I’ll be
Imperial reign came down to crown me
Now in a dream is where I’ll be
Imperial reign came down to crown me
Imperial reign came down to crown me
Now in a dream, a dream is where I’ll be

[Hook: John Legend]
And if it’s gonna rain tomorrow, let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain
Let it rain, let it rain

Gucci Mane & Lil Wayne – Oh Lord (The Birth Of A Nation The Inspired By Album) letras

[Intro: Gucci Mane]
Dear Lord, oh Lord, hah
Yup

[Verse 1: Gucci Mane]
I’m rebellious and fearless, I laugh at failure
Dear Lord, oh Lord, please hear my prayer
I’m a prophet, a legend, I’m not beggin’
I’d rather die for my freedom than live like a peasant
The precious, recessions, the past and the present
Slavery to segregation, I still rob with my brethren
Get these choppas up up off me, I’m street but I’m Godly
Know these white folks fear me but nothin’ can stop me
I was destined to be this so nothin’ amaze me
My best attribute is bravery, they think that I’m crazy
Ask Gucci if you with me, then let’s get to walkin’
Cause I’m sick and tired of everybody doing nothin’ but talkin’
[Hook: Gucci Mane]
Dear Lord, oh Lord, please hear my prayer
Lord, oh Lord, please hear my prayer
Dear Lord, oh Lord, please hear my payer
Know you ain’t take me this far just to leave me here
Dear Lord, oh Lord, please hear my prayer
Lord, oh Lord, please hear my prayer
Dear Lord, oh Lord, I know that life’s unfair
But who gon take care of the family if I’m not there? (Lord)
Dear Lord, oh Lord

[Verse 2: Lil Wayne]
I gotta feed the family
But I had to leave the family
I cut off CMB, I’m an amputee
But I never leave Christianity
Might have to plead insanity
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday
I’mma pray for you niggas, then celebrate
Lord I know these streets contaminate
But Lord I can’t get beat like Anna Mae
Lord I gotta think about Reginae
And Lil Tune and Lil Neal and Lil Cameron
Lord, I gotta think like I’m Hemingway
Make a way, wish a way, anyway, anyway
Lord I gotta create and innovate
Or else it’s back to the interstate
Wheeling in my fortunes
Willing to kill you just for my fortunes
I can recall we were chillin’ on porches
Living with roaches, dealin’ with hoe shit
Tending to lotion, now we in motion, everything kosher
God bless the ‘Nolia, God bless Angola
Rest in Peace Soulja and all of the soldiers
The war isn’t over, call on Jehovah, Lord

[Hook: Gucci Mane + Lil Wayne]
Dear Lord, oh Lord, please hear my prayer
Lord, oh Lord, please hear my prayer
Dear Lord, oh Lord, please hear my payer
Know you ain’t take me this far just to leave me here
Dear Lord, oh Lord, please hear my prayer
