Keep On Praisin' Lyrics
Chorus 2x Keep on praisin liftin up your name To live in Christ, to die is gain
Growin up in the cold world This industries cloggin up my brain Got memories of when gospel rap wasn't about the money or the fame Remember when it used to be strictly ministry Now it's all about who's at the top of the industry Everyone's jealous, full of hate, greed and envy Nowadays I don't even know who my own friends be They criticized, talked about, stabbed behind my back And playa haters still trying to bag gospel rap My heart goes out to the streets I try to reach thugs and addies while you warming up the church seats But you don't hear me tho, turn and look the other way But that's okay, I know God listening to what I got to say I can't lie tho, sometimes I feel like giving up When all this hurt and pain inside me starts building up I start crying but God shows me love and even if I never ever win a thug I'ma keep on praisin' CHORUS Keep on praisin liftin up your name Can you feel me I gotta keep on praisin To live in Christ to die is gain '€˜till the day that I die I'ma keep on praisin
Pick up my cross and I'ma follow you Even if my boys stay behind and I'm the only one in my crew To be man enough to say God here I am But people always quick to judge they don't understand They talking about I ain't real but who are you to judge me God be the only one who knows just what I feel So many rappers nowadays caught up in competition That's why gospel rap be full of so much division Believe me when I say it breaks my heart to think that we was once in unity but now we all been torn apart It's not about how many records we've sold but it's all about how many saved souls Can you feel me? Tears ran down my eyes yesterday as I heard about Tupac's death He's already one left to say Lord I'ma stand in the gap People's are you with me where you at Cuz I'ma keep on praisin CHORUS Keep on praisin liftin up your name Can you feel me I gotta keep on praisin To live in Christ to die is gain '€˜till the day that I die I'ma keep on prasin Baby, baby And even though they criticize me Talk behind my back, and tell me hurtful words Till the day I'm dead when I'm in my grave it's God I'm gonna serve So go ahead and talk about me and spread your lies You the one accountable for every tear when I cry Shed so many tears for so many years God can you help me I trying to reach all my peers And if you don't hear I'ma try harder Even if I die from bullet shots like a martyr This will be driving me hysterical God I need a miracle Devil keep trying to hit me when I wanna get more spiritual Lyrically, I praisin God with every word that I speak You hurt me but I gotta turn the other cheek Cuz vengeance ain't mine, vengeance belongs to the Lord We gotta come together, one mind, one accord So to those who have ears let '€˜em listen To what I'm sayin, with or without you homie, I'ma keep on praisin CHORUS Keep on praisin liftin up your name I'm gonna keep on praisin To live in Christ to die is gain Can you feel me everybody gotta know That I'ma keep on praisin Till the day I'm dead in my grave I'm gonna keep on praisin Ain't nothing or nobody gonna stop me Lifting up the name of Christ you know what I'm saying Till the day I'm dead, six feet under I'ma keep on praisin homie Rock on
