Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, for the cross

Ayyyyyyye got me running round got me running round I been dodging heavy rounds from the haters underground And to say they never got me I’d be lying through me teeth But my Poppa sent a King to come to catch a body

#tbt early 2k I wrote this on a Thursday’bout that time I left my mama house to tie a knot to early Wasn’t tryna hear the mayday from the tribe that fought to raise me You can’t tell me nuthin I thought I was Rays kid

Every dollar to name was thrown away for what? Signing papers to untie a knot they told me would blow up! Ma told me child never come here life can be so unforgiving

Pride comes before a fall Stones call for heavy lifting another brother in the stats Fading like some chalk, fell to my knees Didn’t see the cross like Rucker park, my God I Had nothin else to say I been Wylin, heard a voice could tell that He was smiling

Then He told me

Every step of the way, never left ya lone Take yo problems, fold em Angels roll that stone away
Yeah Yeah, cause I’m the best friend you’ve ever had I gave my life for you, so Ha, flash forward back to today I get it I get it my Heavenly Father been down wit me pre pre-K No way I could ever fall now Because I got heavy insurance with no money down

Upon the brink of calvary Where your wounds had set us free From death came life and life made way When they rolled the stone away

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, for the cross

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, for the cross
