Biography

Douglas Gusimat (TLV - The Lord's Vessel) devoted his life to die as a gang member. In 2000, he accepted Jesus into His life as Lord and Savior. He turned from his life on the streets to dedicate his musical gifting to outreach to the world. This god-given ministry allows him to use the holy hip hop culture and rythym and gospel, to reach out to the world, lead them to the cross, teach, encourage and reassure them of God's perfect will, unfailing love and life-saving purpose.

LOST WITHOUT YOU
TLV-the lord's vessel

hook
-the situation don't amaze me, I won't let the madness phase me
what can I do? All I know is, I'm lost without you

Verse 1
When the world comes against me, what can I do?
Be stressed up and messed up and act like a fool?
No, No. I'd rather live in the truth
that we're lost without love
And when life comes a crashing, I'm seeking the best
when the smoke clears, it's me, blessed
and blessing rest
Oh-oh, we're lost without love
When the world comes against me, I'm leaning on you
When my life comes a crashing, you're keepin' me cool
Everything without you means (I'm)nothing, I'm speaking the truth
my love

Verse 2
When there's obstacles to get by, I'm clinging to you
Won't surrender, i'm centered and know what to do
Uhuh, I'm lost without love
So when it's time to face my, trials that consume
I'll be in check and all set to meet death with you
Oh yeah, I'm lost without love
When there's obstacles to get by, you're seeing me through
When it's time to face trials I'll, seek my refuge
Living life without you means (I'm)nothing, I'm speaking the truth
my love

Verse 3
When I can't find direction, I'm searchin' you out
Feelin' gunned down and run down but living no doubt
No-no, I'd rather fight the good fight
than to be lost without love
Now I'm at the intersection, I'm choosing the way
that points me and annoints me to strengthen my faith
Mmhmm, I'm still lost without love
When I can't find my direction, I stick to the truth
Now I'm at the intersection, and focused on you
I can't love without true love for nothing, I'm speaking the truth
my love

Bridge
you greet me open arms(X8)

PART FOUR 100 CENT

Intro
Everybody put your hands up, get up out your seats at the house of the Pirates,
GS & TLV cuzz we get krunk 4 christ
We had to come like this, cause it’s the vision God gave just to break down the walls and get saved in Jesus name
repeat

TLV
1. I’m a soldier indeed, the devil tries to impede
I’m planted in good soil, a farmer sowing his seed
Lord I’m here to help the seeds grow
God’s word says that what I reap, I sow
*You were created by a God that calls you His friend
He’ll always be in your corner, and even until the end
But your end can be forever through Jesus
The way, the truth, the life believe this

3. Come as you are, draw near to the highest power
Worthy of praise, in all ways a strong tower
Creator of all things, through Him all was made
Adonai, Jehovah Jireh, the Ancient of Days
The focus of this praise, I stand in awe amazed
At His glory and on His perfect grace

GS
2.There’s a heaven and hell, so where ya going?
Let me stand in the gap for those who ain’t knowin’
Lord please remove the veil from the eyes that can’t tell
they’re in chains, Jesus holds the only key to their cells
In your name, take the past and the pain
Even if I have to fast and keep praying, I ain’t playing
The devil can’t stop this praise
Cause this is Holy ground and I ‘m glad that you came

4. My Father, ABBA the One to silence the drama
The One I honor the One that rebukes karma
The One who saves, the One perfect in His ways
The One that I pray, The One who deserves the praise
No other can take me from where I’ve been
when I was His enemy, He called me friend
No other can change my heart and heal my past
The Great I Am, the beginning and the last

Receive this

Written By: The Lord's Vessel

Verse One
I'm blessed to have the privlege to spit this. I give a track the business, like Jesus, when He said that, "It is finished." 'Cause back in the day I would've said its about paper, but I've been washed clean so that you could see my Savior. Producers thought they did my wrong, but God revealed a greater purpose. To be a fisher of men and live a life of service. 'Cause we've beel purchased. Ask Jesus. He got the receipt; One nail in each hand and one driven through both feet. Son of the Creator, The Author, He's so worthy. Pick up your cross, let's go to Golgotha. You see the three men crucified. Now what side of the cross will you choose when you die? Jesus in the middle, with one sinner on right and left. Will you ignore your chance to live eternal and meet death? Or will you be like the man on Jesus other side? He said remember me, and Jesus said he'll be in paradise.

Hook
a. Sometimes we like to tell the future, but we just don't know. We're not promised tomorrow - could be the end of the road. You want to boast? Boast in Jesus! Though many won't believe this! That choice is given freely to receive this.
b. There's a God and a Devil. So who you knowing? There's a Heaven and Hell. So where you going? There's a God and a Devil. So who you knowing? There's a Heaven and Hell. So where you going?
repeat a.

Verse Two
It's impossible to force feed the Gospel of the Christ. We just share about the source we believe will give us life. I'm changed 'cause the Maker, broke through my wild behavior, now I'll ride just for the Savior, the Almighty and His Great Love. To let a Man get tortured for my sin and stay humble. Still I see offensive lineman, that call this mumbo jumbo! But I don't get butt hurt, it's not about me first, don't curse. Spread Jesus and wear Him on my shirt. WE ARE THE CHURCH. 'Cause everybody's on the search. We all want to know if we can satisfy this thirst. Do we have the security we'll have the resources to get what we need on our own? How long will it take us? A week, a month, a year? What if the deal's blown? I'm hoping that you follow, cause for some it's hard to swallow that you could on the whole planet and still feel hollow.

Verse Three
Love covers a multitude of sin. I had an attitude, my friend, to dig a hole and put you in. Death defying like the ring of fire. I was a cheater, thief and a liar. Couldn't wait till I expired. Claimed a set, bullets wizzed by head and neck. Wanted respect, so I hit it like a train wreck. I was sick of living my way. Dead beat and failed relationships. Every day was high day. On the brink of losing the family. Didn't want that tragedy. Then someone told me the name of who can set me free. Hit the house of where they said He stayed. The man on stage led me in prayer to ask Jesus to be saved. I studied, surrounded myself with Christ-like leaders who lean on Christ's might, so I can lead to Christ's light. This walk ain't east, but it's worth it. To leave a legacy to my family and know I don't deserve it.

Solid

Solid

Verse one
My daily check up, from the toe to the neck up, I consult the great physician
My mission, God’s intervention from the flesh that I was given
Cause no matter how many times you throw the gold into fire
There’s impurities that burn off, but it’s more valuable to buy it
Like the cost at the cross, the choice from the boss to give the whole world a savior
You can’t pay a price, sacrifice or earn rights for God to show favor
So what is it? Where the blockage, if any? I’ll drop it see me surrending
Lord help me stop, then mend me. I’m walking with you, not pretending
But if it’s deeper in the grooves reveal it. I’ll pray and fast, confess it, address it
To those with the Kingdom invested.
All I know is I need Jesus, cause without him I am nothing, but a blind guide lost in my destruction, I can’t function.

Hook
Jesus you and only you can save me from falling. I’m in my prayer closet seeking out your wisdom on this.
This is my preparation and this is my heart calling. Self inventory only you can make me SOLID, SOLID
(repeat)

Verse two
As soon as I opened my eyes I knew I’d get the chance to witness my breakthrough
Cause my God is big, even bigger than the whole world, plus the universe too.
Don’t want to be a blind ambassador for you. In humility, love the is the epitome. You gave me life infinity. Your power never limits me to share true serenity to a melody.
You help me out the fog my lighthouse. Lord I need you right now.
Thank you for touching my heart that the while of the devil can’t turn my light down.
Now I’m seeing with Jesus eyes, from off my knees I rise. Lifting up holy hands, I receive mines and let it overflow the body of Christ.
The price was paid. The new covenant laid down, I’m saved. Still I need help to serve this day, better than I did yesterday. Through faith my best this day.
All I really know is I need Jesus, cause without him I am nothing, but a blind guide lost in my destruction, on malfunction.

Verse three
I exhale to God, then inhale his blessing. Directed by those selected. Injected with His affection. Addicted and not restricted. A vessel with no objection. Cause we’re healed by the bloodshed and saved by resurrection.
Lord, you’re in control to make me bold. Use me to save some souls.
Take whatever out of me, Lord, cut it off clean, so I can give my best and more.
Lord, I came with dirty laundry that needs that “white as snow” treatment
I’m glad I found you when I did, because I would’ve been lost tryin’ to seek man.
Believe that. I know the “old” Douglas: Prideful, ciritcal, abusing chemicals, insane to the brain criminal, smiteful individual. Brother. Nothing but the devil’s fool.
That’s why I need Jesus, cause without Him I am nothing, but a Legion, lost in satan’s unction with no function.
