The Pilgrim: Lord Jesus You’re the King and You reign over everything Nothing is impossible to You not even anything Forever never perishing, You’re beauty never blemishing You are the song that we sing when we’re worshipping You’re word is nourishing and You’re kingdom ever flourishing Eternal never finishing, never ever diminishing I’m relishing my relationship I’m daily cherishing Through fellowship my thirsty soul You’re replenishing Lord, because You’re just sin and lust You’ll be punishing Astonishing, how man rejects the admonishing But knees will be knocking, hard nuts will be cracking and trembling All high heels You’ll be leveling Mans long list of short comings You’ll be measuring and threatening Over drawn accounts You’ll be settling Prodigal sons and lost souls You’ll be beckoning and tethering And then will welcome them into the bretherin

E’Miner: Lord release Your power from on high through our lives coz when we grip the mic we want to drop this right we bring our bodies as a living sacrifice that the deaf ears might be opened and the blind receive their sight, and recognize, the way that they can identify with You the Christ who Died, so that we could come into the light and realise that You took away our sin the way to You is open we can now freely come within You’re Holy veil, Lord, no more livin stale, Lord we can know You for ourselves for real, Lord and be secure in who You are in everything we do worship You and know that we is cool that’s why we, want to state plainly, the liberty that You have given us by You sovereignty gratefully received Cross Movement and MOD merge together as one like melody and harmony a Godly symphony, sounding out the ghetto liturgy globally, we bring encouragement to all You’re family faithfully, we want to serve You side by side with sword and trowel till before You’re throne on both our bended knees we take our bow

Repeat Chorus

Lord we declare humbly that You are here We recognize ya We raise our praise to Your name Hallelujah We come to represent You with no shame because we love ya There’s nobody else who is above ya

The Pilgrim: Lord I thank You that to us Gentiles who sat in the darkness You brought us light through Christ no less, sitting in the shadow of death, Lord this world is a mass grave, a tomb headed for doom, give me room spreading from the left to the right, no depth or no height, holding forth the word of life yo takin this game to the street, kicking tradition to the kerb, enlightening those who never heard bringing the word, faithfully spittin the truth, we’re cuttin them loose, the sceptics providin them proof yo we aint timid and scared, we’re fully prepared, we’re ready and keen 1Peter 3:15 me and my team hit targets and getting annoyed, while The Word of God is accurate it never returns void and if you’re looking for Guns we ain’t carryin, but I’ve got a Bible and some tracks in my hand you understand.

E’Miner: Lord People wrestle You and try to fling You off like Dr Spock Instead of gripping You like Jacob Truly You are in this place and they know it not like Clarke Gable, Frankly my dear the mans don’t give a… what!?! Do they know not, that they’re headed for that hot spot and when their flesh rots, they will still be burning non-stop? We try to reason, but they treat us like we’re talkin treason Gwanning (going on) like they is the cream of the crop so we use the hip-hop, to preach non-stop, rinse the Bible from bottom to top & Blaze the Word till we drop because we can’t stop makin it clear, that You are here and You truly care, and our burdens You’ll truly bare, but beware because we know You’re judgement is drawin near, if we turn from sin, You’ll bring us in, out of despair, You made the way clear yet it does makes You’re heart bleed, to see the gals dem bunnin the weed, driven by greed, mans out sowin wild seed, yet more wild flowers a breed, when will the people take heed, tell me when will the people them see Lord You’re here full of Grace and Mercy, us Your keen to receive, Tell me when will the people them see, Lord You’re here and You’re wrath is ready if we refuse to believe.

Repeat Chorus

Lord we declare humbly that You are here We recognize ya We raise our praise to Your name Hallelujah We come to represent You with no shame because we love ya There’s nobody else who is above ya
