"The biggest difference between Jesus christ And ethical and moral teachers Who have been defied by man Is that these moralists came to make bad people good Jesus came to make dead people live"
Man first thing's first The covenant that was made It was painful It hurt The savior was slain But he raised from the dirt Now I'm covered in his blood Ain't no stains in my shirt He conquered the grave Now my faith is secure Cause my God's still alive But my wait has returned So people think they safe Cause they stayin' at church But if they only knew It was by faith And not works By his grace
And his mercy The father He take a sinful man And make him somethin' outta nada He washed away the dirt that I did when I tried to Satisfy my thirst outside the living water Oh what a great mistake I wasted so many years I tried to do it my way instead of doin' his That's probably why I taste the salt from my tears But now I be the salt of the earth to my peers Sin brought me so high But when I came down There wasn't enough folly to keep my mind sound I wanted all the hotties That can get a peace of mine
But there wasn't one hot enough To give me peace of mind I wanted fast money But when I finally got it The only thing that was filled was my front pockets I blew all my cash on the kicks and the summer gear By the time I got home I done got my eyes on another pair Never satisfied in the pleasures that's fadin
Cause I can't take it to the grave man The babes or The stacks of the paper Now I only put my faith in the savior It only makes sense I really don't care if I never make a cent If my pockets full of lint I could still sleep well Cause the God of the universe know me by government
Ayo he saved me He ain't take a bad man try to make a good man He just took a dead man Then he let him live He told me get up & walk He told me get up & walk He told me get up & walk So I did
He saved me He ain't take a bad man try to make a good man Nah took a dead man Then he let him live He told me get up & walk He told me get up & walk He told me get up & walk So I did
"Man is not just unethical He is lost and dead If man is only lost in guilt What I have given to you is bad news But he's lost in sin And our great privilege is to tell him we have a savior
