Lyrics

God Sees Me

Written By: john McDermott

I may look rough with my tattoos and gothic style clothes
But my heart, only Jesus knows
He set a child free of demons
And He'd do it again if that parent had 15 sons
One by ones, He sets the captives free
Doesn't matter if you're (Montgomery) Gentry, Fifty (Cent) or even me
God sees the oppressed
That's why I'm blessed
But it's not all about me, It's about Him who sits in the heavenly places
It's Genesis 1:1, He created the spaces
He sees me not because of vision, but because of His heart
He saved me by His mission and we'll never depart
Even though my works be burned by the Refina
He's still my ticker to heaven, He's my cosigna
He makes His enemies a footstoll under His feet
But to get grace it didn't come cheap
Bought with His blood in the power of resurrection
Just got saved, so I'm still a textn'

You can't take Christ outta Christian, you'll only get Ian and he can't help ya
You need Hebrews 2:11, that's Jesus, a true brotha
He turned water into wine because He loves weddings
But most of all He really loves sex
Just depends on your motives, you're context

When I pray to God-the heavens shake like tectonics
It's spiritual ABC's-it's like hooked on phonics
Awe and I know that God hears
It's Psalm 56:8, a Book of Tears
Now I'm full of God, the Holy Spirit
So when I walk through the doors y'all will hear it
Fear and tremblin'-awe so humblin'
satan, I can't hear ya, what are ya mumblin'

Following God will cost you what
Doesn't matter if you're normal or if you're King Tut
We all got a price to pay
Whether in part or everyday
So I keep moving because I'm nomadic
My life may look shaky, a little static
But I build my house on the Rock
God takes the quakes, He takes the shock

I'm lookin' for His glory, I want a glimpse
Standing between these planets of a Divine eclipse
A shout from the Spirit, this video is gonna go viral
Gonna give God the glory like a Milky Way spiral

I may look rough with my tattoos and gothic style clothes
But my heart, only Jesus knows
He set a child free of demons
And He'd do it again if that parents had 15 sons
One by Ones, He sets the captives free
Doesn't matter if you're (Montgomery) Gentry, Fifty (Cent) or even me
God sees the oppressed
That's why I'm blessed

I'm full of God, the Holy Spirit
So when I walk through the doors y'all will hear it
What others call normal, I call love
What others call formal, I see a dove
Like Pentecost, it's the Spirit's descent
Like the moon, it's a glorious crescent
Ya, it's a poetic crescendo
So excited, I'm like a kid playin' nintendo

This rap is baptizin' y'all by fire
This is God's heart, this is desire
Stars fall from the heavens and breads unleaven (ed)
But nevertheless God forgives men 70 times seven

When I pray to God the heavens shake like tectonics
It's spiritual ABC's, it's like hooked on phonics
Awe, and I know that God hears
It's Psalm 56:8, a Book of Tears
Now I'm full of God, the Holy Spirit
So when I walk through the doors y'all will hear it
Fear and tremblin', awe so humblin'
satan, I can't hear ya, what are ya mumblin'

Now I walk into the wilderness but I'm not phased
I'm God's child, blessed forever, this is how I'z raised
Homeless and yet I've always had a home
I've always had prayers, I've always had a phone
It's the end of my life and now it's time to go
You'll see my face in heaven and it will glow
Because I see God's face, His reflection
A glorified body, this is life, this is resurrection

This is how I know that God sees me
