[DMX] Let us pray I thank you Lord for my birth, and everything that's followed I thank you Lord for TODAY, and I will pray for tomorrow I THANK YOU LORD for the love of my life and a friend I made a promise - and I'm lovin my wife til the end I thank you Lord for your GUIDANCE, cause it's all that counts And RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW?! Lord, this is your house I THANK YOU LORD for a dream that came true to light and I ask you to bless everybody, in this room tonight I don't always do the right thing, and I ask you to forgive me cause I need you hear wit me Without you in my life, it's empty I THINK BACK how some people did me like, violence was the remedy and because I think of that now, I pray for my enemy Not because of what I'll do - but because they don't know There's somethin BETTER AFTER HERE - and everybody, won't go So I ask you to forgive them, and we'll hope they see And I thank you for the love that, they've given to me I WILL NOT ABUSE IT, nor will I lead them astray You see I love em like children, that I see everyday And I pray.. no, WE PRAY, together to get us through the bad weather, and we love you forever Let YOUR THOUGHT, and my heart, go hand in hand I FIRST THOUGHT, but to start, but I stand a man And for as long as I can, as long as you permit me Please give me, the strength I need to live Bear with me -- amen.
We each walk the path, that you've chosen Yes..
I'm ready to meet him cause where I'm livin ain't right Black hate white, white hate black, it's right back to the same fight They got us suspectin a war But the real war is to follow the law of the lord
[DMX] Lord, you left me stranded, and I don't know why Told me to live my life, now I'm ready to die Ready to fly, I cry, but I shed no tears You told me you would dead those fears, it's been years Snakes still comin at me - just missin Sometimes I think all you do with me is just listen I thought that I was special - that's what you told me Homey - stop actin like you don't know me What'd I do so bad that it sent you away from me? Not only sent you away, but made you stay away from me? (My child I'm here, as I've always been It is you who went away and now are back again What did I say?) Follow your word, and be true (What did you do?) Well, what I wanted to do (What have you seen?) Darkness and hell at a glance (What do you want?) All I want is another chance
[DMX] (Just because you went away, my doors are not locked Wanna come back home? All you gotta do is knock) You see I left home a boy, but returned as a man Full grown, and I'm still not able to stand (I gave you a hand) Well, but I was lookin the wrong way Figured out the plan, then I started to pray And that prayer, took me from here - over there - back to over here, now it got me like where - do I belong, do I fit in? Things on my mind, where do I begin? It's easier to sin, but it hurts my heart I'm really tryin to win, so where do we start? (Thou shalt not steal) But what if he stole from me? (Thou shalt not kill) But what if he's tryin to kill me? (Thou shalt not, take my, name in vain No matter how hard it rains, withstand the pain)
[DMX] I'm ready to meet him -- our father, who art in heaven I'm not ashamed to ask for guidance at twenty-seven No longer afraid to knock on your door Not scared anymore to lose my life in the war After what I just saw, I'm ridin with the Lord Cause I really can't afford to lose my head by the sword And now that I've seen, what I need to see Please take me, where I - need to be (What have you learned?) It's better to tell the truth than to lie (What have you learned?) To love my life until I die (What have you learned?) Violence isn't always the key (What have you learned?) You can't always believe what you see (What have you learned?) It's better to forgive and forget (What have you learned?) Give as you expect to get (What have you learned?) That I can't go on without you (What have you learned?) I musta been a fool to ever doubt you!
[DMX] I'm ready to meet him I'm ready to meet him I'm ready to meet him I'm ready to meet him I'm ready to meet him
