Enock Written and Produced by William Branch Recorded by Gordon (The Studio, Phila., Pa) Mixed by Storm (The Studio, Phila., Pa) Cross Movement Music & Publishing (SESAC)
Hook: It's on right now Kingdom people bring it on right now We should get together Cause it's on right now Let all the people know it's on right now People get ready Bring it strong right now
Verse 1: Let's see--let me address you like a package There's a disease you might not know you've contracted The fact is you can track this with no track list Check the way you get better at sin with no practice Though we laugh it's not funny when we ask if, You're going to heaven and you say, "Yea, I'm Baptist"
Perhaps this rap is a way to get at this An up-to-date, God honoring way to combat this An even you can eat this meat, it's lean cut I'll make it plain like M&M's without the peanuts Study Scripture, and you can see there's a muddy mixture Saint's with aint's and both paint an ugly picture Of the Savior---you know you paint with your behavior Salt's your flavor, you're supposed to shake what your Father gave ya
In the streets so men can peep your Godliness We're cities on a hill so if you're saved it should be obvious.
Verse 2: When a believer sins you better believe it's in contradiction To his divine commission and his God given position It's hard pickin' the Christians their living like the planet is Real scandalous like Jerry Springer panelist Time to switch the channel it's the God who can handle this He'll unscramble this, He knows the game like an analyst It's sad that we say we love God yet the bad acts The world does we do too, and God gets a bad rap Has that caused you any pain, if not I ask, "Why?" "The world's better!" You mean you believe that lie?
When you're not living right you're giving Christ a "black eye" When you love the world you're having an affair like a black tie Times are dark like a black sky But the Son's light can still shine bright at night like a cat's eye That's why as sure as bats fly every rap I Do will have Jesus as Lord, Savior and Rabbi He coming fast black, He came once, we've passed that Keep that on your mind like a flashback You should have your bags packed, get out the maze like a lab rat Keep your eyes on Him and take them off of the NASDAQ.
It's on right now...
Verse 3: To the true Christian would you listen You need renewed vision, we've got to rise like a school's tuition It's a Good News Mission, but guess who's missing You and me claiming to be in the pool fishin' What's this? Afraid to go where rough is? Bust this---we've got the same Spirit that gave Peter his toughness Plus this is what our Lord did when He touched us Took a human frame and the He came where the dust was I know you heard He got mad bloody and dirty Laid His life down 3 years after He turned thirty Then got up. Three days later the Savior shot up Now you and I can get the Savior's product
I said He got up. Three days later the Savior shot up Now you and I can get the Savior's product Life and a pardon from sin. Chillin' with God with no end Like life in the Garden again Enough! Stop talkin', start provin' your with it Don't bluff - Start walkin' like moving your pivot.
Bridge: We've got to hold our ground Even though the world is getting' colder now The Spirit gives the power to get bolder now Remember God's chosen you're a soldier now
