JESUS DIED FOR ME AND YOU

Not long ago, I had the ambition to be a rapper. During the time that I wanted to be a rapper, I wrote thousands of songs. Out of the several songs I wrote, I want to share with you one of the songs, if not the only one, that talks about Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God. You can sing the lines, rap the lines, and read the lines, but as you do that please make sure you focus on the words because they carry so much power that is capable of lifting you from your troubles. They are capable of taking you from the road to destruction and putting you on the road to Paradise. I titled it “Jesus died for me and you.” Enjoy.

INTRO:

yeah! yeah! ooooh yeah!

(somebody let me hear you say it)

Yeah! yeah! ooooh yeah!

Jesus died for sinners like me

(Sinners like me)

If you ask me how I know

(how I know)

John 3 vrs 16 qoutes that

(It says it all homie)

And that word ‘whosoever’ means me

VERSE 1:

that’s the gospel baby

there is an old story

that is ever new

there is an old story

that is very true

and whosoever shall believe

shall life forever receive

Praise God for that relief

long long ago

a man came to die for me as well as you

he passed the surface of this earth like me and you

in flesh and blood

he healed the sick

he made the blind to see

the lame to walk

he gave food to the hungry

and quenched the thirst of the masses.

then, everything was cool

until the enemy refused

to accept him king to rule

the whole wide world

so they caught him

and beat him

they whipped him

and mocked him

they spat on his face

and kicked his arse

he walked haphazardly

and they jeered him

they plaited him a crown of thorn

and placed it on His head

a purple robe with bitter scorn

His scepter was a reed

behold the man these fools call king

was pirates mocking cry

‘He is the one and only son of God almighty’

was his people’s cry

and owned him king most high

they led him from the judgment hall

and nailed him to the cross

and gave him mingled wine and gall

and mocked his pain and agony

‘father forgive them’ was his prayer

’tis finished’ was his cry to his father

and shortly he died

and was laid to rest

rest in perfect peace

that death washed my transgressions as well as yours

that has masked our face from the glare of the lord’s

on the third day, he rose from the dead

And ascended to Heaven, via the clouds, before His people

this old story is sour, but sweet

and refreshing.

Who is this man?

Jesus the Nazerene

Jesus Christ

He came to die for my sins

and your sins

It is what it is.

CHORUS:

Ooooh for onetime make you pray to God

(Jesus died yeah)

I mean the almighty God

Move your hands in the air

from the left and to the right

And your knees buried in the ground

And lift up louder

the name of your savior

Praise Him

And wave something

Lift up His name oh louder

Jesus died, Jesus died yeah

Jesus died for me and you

VERSE 2:

You weren’t ransomed with a price of gold

You weren’t ransomed with a sum untold

But by the precious blood of our Lord’s dear son

God sent Him for us all

Whether you are black or white

Jesus came to die for you and me

Listen and give your ears to me

Cos i know obedience

is better than sacrifice

What is your reason sister?

What is your problem brother?

You can drink, smoke, and cry

But your problem go dey

You go cry all the way

Day by day

But the problem go dey

so, me I say

the Bible say

Make you pray to God

“Our father, who art in heaven”

through His son Jesus who died for our sin

Would you die for a lover?

Or die for your mother?

But Jesus died, Jesus died yeah

Jesus died for me and you

C’mon praise Him

And wave something

to the glory of His name

Everywhere

Here and there

In the class, or in the Church

In the office, or in your bed

That’s right

You know the right thing

so do it right

and now

Don’t be deceived that Hell with many

is better than heaven with a few

CHORUS:

Ooooh for onetime make you pray to God

(Jesus died yeah)

I mean the almighty God

Move your hands in the air

from the left and to the right

And your knees buried in the ground

And lift up louder

the name of your savior

Praise Him

And wave something

Lift up His name oh louder

Jesus died, Jesus died yeah

Jesus died for me and you

VERSE 3:

everytime we make a move

Wanna efforts are thwarted alive

many hours working under the sun

without any positive changes in our lives

Pushing trucks  for ends meet was part of us

But today Jesus put them all aside

So so wonders he continues to do

this message is for everyone: both rich and poor

those in chains of the wicked

those whose lives are in the hands of the witches

those whose aims and goals in life seem far from reaching

And to you who have life today

Many struggled alot but couldn’t see this day

it’s simple, just listen

Great is the foe

but onwards we must go

As we sing this mighty chorus

Jesus died, Jesus died yeah

Jesus died for me and you

My brother man

And sister woman

Be valiant and strong

And resist the powers of sin

The fight is long

and the foe is strong

But we are winners in the Lord

so i say

do good all the time

And give it all to Christ

Give Him your lifetime

and He will never let you down

Go to Church on sunday

and listen to the preacher

and live your life in God’s way

His love is wide wide wide as the ocean

High high high as the heaven

Deep deep deep as the deepest sea

Praise Him

and wave something

OUTRO:

I’m glad that my Lord is alive

I’m glad that my Lord hears my cry

yeah! yeah! oooooh yeah!
