    I did it for you
    I did it for you
    I did it for you

    That's why I did it yea'll
    For all the listeners
    Whoever be hearing this
    That's why I do what I do

    I did it for you

    Single mother low income riding the bus
    Big momma making a fuss saying in God she trusts.
    My uncles 20, I'm 10 taking gulps of gin.
    He don't realize that we all are engulfed in sin.
    Gang bangers on the corner got me wanna be down
    Take a bullet for some city on government ground
    By 25 everybody locked or died
    To busy playing around never looking ahead
    Every funeral, cats get upset and cry
    Turn their heads towards the sky trying to ask God why
    But they never looked up till then
    Every other day they concerned with the world and consumed in sin
    Not Christ just heaven they want
    They think clean means not trying to sling things out of their trunk
    Nobody ever to them heaven was spotless and we all dirty
    That's why we need a Holy God to wash us

    [Chorus:]
    I did it for you

    I opened up my life and shared my life
    So that you can see we all need Christ

    I did it for you

    If you can understand my pain
    Maybe you can see we all need change

    I did it for you

    Can view my life my pain my hurt
    Man I hope this work

    I did it for you

    Sense Christ died for sin
    I never be the same again

    I did it for you

    Young dude, I remember coming home after school
    Changing channels from videos back to cartoons
    Up late talking on the phone under my bed
    So momma couldn't hear some of the things I said
    And it wasn't all bad but it wasn't all good
    Even though momma was doing the best she could
    I was a latchkey home alone for hours
    Entertaining my sin And my soul devour
    Pick up by the cops at the age of 12
    And not because my momma didn't raise me well
    I was a drug baby big momma dragged me to church
    Hated ever minute of it but she prayed it would work
    I an't never met my daddy so I feel all empty
    Like why he never call or why don't he come get me
    And momma under legalistic teachings and lies
    So she beat me and she tell me it was to keep me alive
    a typical youth I mean A typical youth 16 agnostic and looking for truth
    I lived for myself, No one ever told me the plan
    God had to bring redemption to a fallible man
    Good news really wasn't good news to me
    Cause I never new the condemnation due to me
    And I wish somebody would of told me then
    What it meant to know Christ and to be born again

    [Chorus]

    They say Mac got saved and X is a Christian
    Well I don't really know them but I pray they both listen
    It's hard trying to grow up in a sinful land
    And you don't have an example of a Godly man
    Well hold on; just keep your eyes on Christ
    When we enter in the world, man our lives alright
    They say heaven has a ghetto but that an't true
    And if God has a standard then that an't you and that an't me
    That's what I learned late one night when a man named James White changed my life
    He told me that Christ paid the price for sin
    Every lie I ever told Christ died for them
    See, I never knew I offended God I just knew I really wasn't trying to live for God
    And my sins all cost me, Yeah pretty costly
    I couldn't blame the hood for the death sin bought me
    All that I could do was blame myself and realize there was no way I could change myself
    So I trusted Christ with my lustful life
    And he saved me that's why I am trying to touch the mic
    Yeah so if you ask who I am spitting this to, that's right yea'll I did it for you
    And if you ask who I have written this to, that's right I did it for you

    [Chorus]

    I did it for you, I did it for you
    So I could show you that his grace is right here for you
    I did it for you, I did it for you
    So I could show you that his grace is right here for you

    I did it for you
