Lecrae's song "Desperate"

I know a lot of people do not like rap/hip hop music, but I can tell you that Christian rap has some of the best lyrics in any songs writen! So, I understand if you don't like the style, but just read the words from part of this song.

Verse 2: "I'm waste deep in my pity/ Is satan tryna trick me and tell me you won't forgive me/ Cause it's startin to get me/ Jesus help me quickly/ I hate the wrong I've done/ I know we all fall but I feel like the only one/ Feels like I should be shunned/ Should I punish myself/ I know it's dumb cause by your death all my sin has been dealt/ But my sin is been felt/ I didn't wanna do it/ But what I wanna do I don't/ I swear I'm going through it/ I'm tryin to open up my Bible need to read your pages/ need you Lord but my guilt has got me feelin so faithless/ Help me see where grace is/ Take me back to the basics/ Help me find my joy in you and not people and places/ my sin is ever before me/ I turned my back on you/ Oh father break and restore me to bring me back to you."

This is his cry to God because of His sin...and then verse 3 is the solution.

Verse 3: "Have mercy on me God, according to your steady love/ Wipe away my transgressions and wash me in your blood/ Create in me a clean heart/ renew a right spirit/ Don't hide your face from me God/ Your presence keep me near it/ I'm waiting patiently on you Lord/ I know you hear my cry/ Restore your joy in me for you alone i live and die/ It's you I glorify cause you don't want my sacrifice/ You want me broken and contrite and trustin in the Christ/ I confess to you my sin and you show me mercy/ I turn away from it demonstrating that you are worthy/ Over lust, over pride, over all sin/ Is my affection for Jesus who died for all of them/ I was lost now I'm found/ I was tossed to the ground/ My sin weighed on me heavy but I'm no longer bound/ As sure as Christ wears the crown, I know that grace will abound/ And even when I feel lost I know in you I am found!"

Sorry for writting out so much, but I didn't even put in there verse 1 which I like just as much! I just love this song! Our God is so gracious to us! We are so sinful, and we are so desprate for Him!! He is the only one who can save us! We need His mercy and grace, and He freely gives!! Love this song! If you have any liking of hip hop at all, you need to go look this song up! I know you'll love it! Thank you God for being so merciful and gracious!!
