Divorce Me From This Ministry

Written By: Tony Dorsey

Verse 1: I feel alone, that lonely feelin’ to get up and leave sounds so appealin’/ my soul is willin’, lord willin’ use me for your service is my purpose/ Im struggilin’ with my inner man, I wrestle not against flesh but my inner man, I made a vow that I try till the day I die but in the mean time lord can you hear me cry!!/ Im cryin out Im fightin’ doubt, Im findin’ out that your ministry can take you out, but it aint about, you or me, its all about these souls so lets set em free, and Im fightin in the lords army, encouraged me told me to be all I can be/ Its seems hard when its one against three got victory in my corner but my corner aint supportin’ me!!

Chorus: DIVORCE ME FROM THIS MINISTRY ITS KILLIN’ ME 4X

Verse 2: God why? I mean why me? I love my gift but for real my gift is killin’ me/ It took my money, it took my time if I aint careful its gone rise up and take my mind/ but I cant let go, it helps me flow, even though I put in work and it steals the show/ so humble me, I humbly, I come before you and im givin’ you authority/ Cause I cant take it, Im impatient, its goin’ on ten years still tryin’ to make, and people came and then they went, lyin’ on me and with that they were diligent/ I still repent, don’t talk about em’ in fact I forgave, pray, and got love for em’/ And if I let my wrath lead my path the aftermath when I die is lyin’ in satan’s bubble bath!!

Chorus: DIVORCE ME FROM THIS MINISTRY ITS KILLIN’ ME 4X

Creator

Written By: Tony Dorsey

Verse 1: This is the birth of the earth, I’ll break it down for you show you what its worth/ From every bird and every tree, the anatomy of you and of me/ And we were born to be free, the sun sets as the moon dances on the sea/ Fruit bearing from the tree, no sin, the lion lays with the sheep/ Knowing every sand on the beach, I can do all things if I just reach, he sent his son down to teach, flesh of his flesh so his word I beseech/ And his thoughts of creation, out way my thoughts and my imagination/ How do they breathe under water?? How do they fly in the sky?? See I am just the “X” and my God equals the “Y”

CHORUS: NO ONE IS GREATER, THAN MY CREATOR 2X
LORD I LOVE YOU 3X, I REALLY DO.

Verse 2: The trees sway in the day, the land grows and to you lord they pray, prayin’ for a rainy day, showers fall and the hairs on the bears lay/ And the bees work for hours, flowers tall as towers, to become ours/ The rocks cry out in silence, while humans weep effected by the violence, but God you still create even though we hate and we selfish and we take/ And you specific with our mate, I can find the missing piece if I wait/ Lord you are poetry in motion, ya presence I am holdin’ see the power of the ocean/ See every star in space, we are just a witness of your grace, Lord I feel you in this place, I lift my hands as the tears fall from my face.

CHORUS: NO ONE IS GREATER, THAN MY CREATOR 2X
LORD I LOVE YOU 3X, I REALLY DO.
