A Cross Movement Compilation
Written By: William Branch / Brady Goodwin
Produced By: The Ambassador

"Yeah, yeah, yeah…I hear what they sayin,' they really not sayin' nothin.' Finite man, rebellin' against infinite God…that don't even sound right."

CHORUS
'Father forgive them for they know not what they do, Father forgive them for they know not what they do.' For disregarding what is true, lovin' sin instead of you. 'Father forgive them for they know not what they do.'

VERSE 1
(The Ambassador) Heaven presents another smash hit for Jesus, He keeps you rockin' when we're droppin' phat masterpieces. We're on the side of the God who's been rejected, the One who took flesh, died, but who's resurrected? Jesus, the full Godhead manifested. 'Grace and peace to all those > and elected. Check it, but on the real things aren't chill as they seem-why? Cat seems to make mad people blaspheme. That's what the ill deed that man's greed leads to. It's got you bitin' that hand that feeds you. He's grieved to the heart, bone, and the marrow. All because God gets more respect from the sparrow. Jesus died for men, but who wants to live with Him? Can't stand Him they want the mammon, the Benjamins. And if it's men then it's within the natural > Huh, sounds fun but like a hand and a gun, sin and death go together like Sanford and Son. So this plan is done. It's not hard to hear squads, talk hard and live like they don't fear God. Plus 'we're in the era of the "Human Superstar," but no matter who they are they fall tryin' to pull a "coupe d'etat." ' Answer me, 'How can this be sensible?' Man tryin' to overthrow God the invincible?' Learn this principle that I'm droppin,' God's omnipotent, omnipresent, He's omniscient and sovereign. That's the first lesson now in this session from my crew. We need forgiveness, we know not what we do.

CHORUS
'Father forgive them for they know not what they do, Father forgive them for they know not what they do.' For puffin' blunts, and pullin' stunts, and drinkin' brew. For the criminal acts done by criminal crews. 'Father forgive them for they know not what they do, Father forgive them for they know not what they do.' For disregarding what is true, lovin' sin instead of you. 'Father forgive them for they know not what they do.'

VERSE 2 (The Phanatik)
I'm more than fascinated by the facets of Creation >. I'm infatuated by the facts and attributes of my Creator. I wager this world don't even know His name, and those who do they treat it like growin' pains and go insane when it's mentioned-feel the tension-between God and man, I ride the land and see there's > work to be done between the earth and the One who made it. Everything belongs to Him (uh huh) so we give props through songs and hymns just like they did. But once again the sons of men have formed a pact, another culture without God is on the map. Lord, I apologize for all the guys, who go one way when you clearly say otherwise. 'Father forgive them' for they don't know your plan. Who can stop your motion or even slow your hand? No one can! But still this world they want to have a face off, with the soon coming King who's runnin' things like a racehorse. They pace off ten steps, turned and shoot. Haven't even learned the route and to boot-swearin' they can make it straight to God, but wait the odds are stacked up against the man whose back is against the God whose hand rules the land. But ahh (ahh), what a relief to have my plan reversed. No longer am I down with planet Earth, but > the actual fact was I was born with the natural knack cuz to put God in the back and that's backwards. Truthfully, I now belong exclusively to the club where God is no longer where He used to be. Stop the mutiny, save the eulogy, Christ ain't dead my >--He's livin', I often pray…

CHORUS
'Father forgive them for they know not what they do, Father forgive them for they know not what they do.' For disregarding what is true, lovin' sin instead of you. 'Father forgive them for they know not what they do.'

VERSE 3 (The Ambassador)
You wanna please the judge, please Jesus cuz He's it, that's most definite I represent like I believe it. Jesus be the Savior of every man-true dat-I sinned, killed Him once, kill Him again, will never do that. With a crew that sticks to facts from God's Word like glue traps, peep the fly tunes that bring the Triune crew back. If you lack Christ you lack the realistic picture. Confused ain't it? Then let's repaint it with the scripture. So mentally you'll vibe with the first century. Begin to see Christ who gave His life to save men for free. You'll see the chains of sin (and the key), the pains of sin (and the fee), the names of you (and the me), and the whole Adam family taking turns bangin' in nails and thorns-you'll see our sin that was hangin' him. You'll see Him raised and see the state of modern history you'll see the hate for God and wonder how this could be; but this to me is no mystery because it's true, we need forgiveness, we know not what we do.

CHORUS
'Father forgive them for they know not what they do, Father forgive them for they know not what they do. Father forgive them for they know not what they do, Father forgive them for they know not what they do.' Cheatin' on taxes, for corporate crimes are now practice. Thievin' for excess, for even worshippin' the Lexus. For the life of sin and bein' proud of it, for shifty politics, for teachin' ten year olds to pack gats wit' the hollow tips. For the braggin,' the Godless rappin,' the kidnappin,' shootin' and stabbin,' for ridin' Satan's bandwagon.

CHORUS
'Father forgive them for they know not what they do, Father forgive them for they know not what they do. Father forgive them for they know not what they do, Father forgive them for they know not what they do.' For trashin' up Your planet, breakin' every commandment. Takin' Your grace for granted, livin' life unlike You planned it.

(Phanatik) "Ahhh, how can this be? On Your earth yet we have no worth 'cuz we're separated. Look at us making moves, runaway trains on our own tracks. Only you can bring us back. Thank You Lord for Jesus Christ. You came after us, but not like some wicked slavemaster coming to get a runaway slave. More like a loving Father coming to get His runaway children. Forgive us Lord…"
