lyrics

Orijin:
Listen family, I been humbled and transformed
Yo the Lord saves and something to bank on
when I'm shoutin praises like thank God
It ain't a shallow phrase like award show speeches
The Lord's mercy's my life's foremost thesis
Boast in my weakness, ego is broken to pieces – why?
The peace of God defeated pride, now this love I can’t keep inside
Since I peeped Jesus grind to seek his bride
In the people labelled the least of us: thieves, freaks, and liars
Compassion that I never thought was possible
Conjures up the kind of hope that beckons home the prodigal
And throws a fete when they seek refuge at their home address
So obsessed with reconciling nevermind them old regrets
So the message I hope you catch and you keep in mind
Realize you’re the apple of your redeemer’s eye
Weeps beside the meek and provides for the thirsty
Lift your hands up and keep em high – Lord have mercy

Rel:
The world’s so topsy turvy
Been hurting since my first day
My thirsty soul ain’t worthy
Lord Have Mercy

And I wonder if you heard me
I need love in the worst way
Your grace is like my first aid
Lord have mercy

Scribe:
I walked out the cemetery at fifteen gleaming
Brush my shoulders off on Jehovah straight leaning
He's the one that dug me up placed my heavenly beaming
Shining like the Son, I hope you catch the triple meaning
His grace the only reason I do work too turnt with purpose
Went from grave shifts to worship and service
Grace through faith, it's no way I earned this
Faith by grace, His love I'm immersed in
Not perfect but could be much worse
Can't count on my fingers how many homies have been black box hearsed
Whose fears diverse, who still face wrath, who ain't unearthed
Any meaning beyond the planet while they still do dirt
So I'm tryna keep my faith, Ultralight Beam Yeezy
Thank God for the whip He took, no Lamborghini
Knowing He could have murked me like the purge cause I'm unworthy
He took me out from death and rebirthed me, Lord have mercy

Rel:
The world’s so topsy turvy
Been hurting since my first day
My thirsty soul ain’t worthy
Lord Have Mercy

And I wonder if you heard me
I need love in the worst way
Your grace is like my first aid
Lord have mercy
