Lyrics

I know

Written By: Point5

Lord I know that your love is patient your love is kind
It’s hard to believe that your love is mine
But I will cherish it, share it with the world
Make sure that it’s true and through you if I decide to share it with a girl
Cuz I know not a whole lot Lord
About your book but I’ll just keep on reading I just won’t stop Lord
Cuz I’m infatuated and gravitated and uplifted
By the gift of your scripture and its relentless intentions
And I know that some will acknowledge you, and follow you
And others won’t bother to holler that you are the father
But I confess with my tongue that Lord Jesus you’re the one
And I confess with my hands that Lord Jesus you’re the man.
Now I can say it with a hip hop language
With the power of God inside of me I can be hip hops greatest
I formed a combination of holy and hip hop phrases
And made a stage presentation for a hip hop nation

(Chorus)

I know I know that it’s dark I can’t see
But I believe that your son will come shine on me
And I know I know that there will be rainy days
But you’ll come take that pain away
And I know I know that it’s dark I can’t see
But I believe that your son will come shine on me
Cuz I believe in your Word
I believe every word
And of all the things out there, Lord you come first
I know

Part 1

Imagine my suprise
when I open up my eyes and realize
Everything that was around me was a lie
wasnt I
protected by the spirit that's inside?
My mind it had me fried and I could no longer rely, Oh my
sometimes I can't deny that I cry
and the emotions inside of me
complied with my pride
even though I kept physically growing my spirit died
and then I relized its in you I must confide!
Lord God
I'm not used to you cuz your odd
your so different from the rest
when Im around you I'm refreshed
next Im pressed to make the people stop guessin
Its a life lesson learned sure dog you should confess him
as your Lord and your saivor give him the praise
let him explain your ways as you change your ways
and for the rest of my days Im gonna praise the name
of him and have faith in today
because today you saved

Anywhere

Written By: Point5

I can become anything that I Am says that I am
Already already cuz my plan
Is to take the gospel anywhere you want me to t-take it to
So I can become anything anywhere that you take me to
Lord you just make me new, did it time and time again. Devoted all my time to him
And see them rhymes, they done changed a lot of lives.
Set a lot of people free from addiction and suicide (but uhhhh)
All the glory is really God’s and everything that you think that I am I’m really not
Because I’m broken. I’m helpless. I’m really nothing without Him
And He resides inside of me so I’m truly astounding

Chorus-
I’ll go! I’m gonna give my all and I won’t slow
I’m gonna show the world what they don’t know
I’m gonna be the one when it’s done, yeah I’m gonna take it higher
If I made it this far, I can take it higher
If I made it this far, I can go anywhere
If I made it this far, I can go anywhere
Anywhere, anywhere, anywhere, anywhere

See I’m gonna take it higher
Get all my frequent flyer miles
As I tell the world how you saved me from all of my prior
Sinful disgusting, greed, hatred, and lusting
You gave me something to trust in, made me everything that I wasn’t
Now I’ happy with who I am and there’s nothing I can’t do
I’ll go anywhere, anytime, do anything for you
Cuz see if I made it this far, the HE did his part
I’m a Ducati in the spirit. Need a kick start (vroom)
And now I’m gone em. Full speed ahead, Arnold Swartzenneger strong on em
I’m going to give my all, everything and I aint holding back
Every time I see a problem I’m like “here Jehovah that!”
You can take it, I can’t.
You’re the one and I am. The one you have chosen to hold the world in his right hand
Take it from here to Mexico, Australia, to Thailand
And all the way around the globe. Going hard. Aint never going slow so….

Chorus-
I’ll go! I’m gonna give my all and I won’t slow
I’m gonna show the world what they don’t know
I’m gonna be the one when it’s done, yeah I’m gonna take it higher
If I made it this far, I can take it higher
If I made it this far, I can go anywhere
If I made it this far, I can go anywhere
Anywhere, anywhere, anywhere, anywhere
