This first part i did not write…i heard it as a kid and its stuck with me all these years! If you know where its from i would love it if you could tell me so i can give credit!
I was trapped by the invisible walls of my fate,
Tricked by the idea that I could not escape,
Chained up in a ghetto where my father died,
Fooled into thinking I would never go outside.
Imprisoned by my friends who knew nothing but war,
Shackled to everything that had gone on before.
I would always be here in this dead end life of mine,
My heart turned back by a city limit sign.
and yet I now see a way out of my concrete jail,
A new way to soften a heart that’s grown stale.
No longer cursed in this place for the wealth,
No longer fighting with man or myself.
I understand now what it takes to get real.
If you wanna stand up, you have to learn how to kneel.
My weapons are down at my feet.
‘Cause we’ll never have freedom
When there’s blood on the street.
The blood on the street that HE once gave
The blood that shows I am no longer a slave!
With flesh torn from his back and thorns stabbed in his head
If you were to see this man you might as well thought he was dead
But no, He picked up his burden and carried his cross
Fully knowing what the price of our sins will cost
Nails were driven into his Feet and hands
And within that moment he became the worlds most hated man!
As his body was cut off from oxygen and his strength depleted
He looked up to the skies, wept, and then pleaded
“Lord! Forgive them for they do not know what they do!”
And everyone witnessed the death of “The King of the Jews”
We killed God!
All Hail Satan for we thought that he won
But let me tell you something my brothers this story hasnt even begun!
See THREE days past in which Jesus was dead!
Three days his body lay on that cold, stone bed
But on the third day our Lord Came back
And everyone gasped like an asthma attack!
He said “Go out and preach to all the nations
Baptizing them with endless recitation”
And so this is our duty to go preach the good news
Because through our God we will never ever lose!
