"Ready To Meet Him" as written by and Earl/dean Simmons....
Please give me the strength I need to live...
Bear with me
We each walk the path that we've chosen

I'm ready to meet him
We're I'm living ain't right
Black hate white
White hate black
It's right back
To the same fight
They got us suspecting a war
But the real war is to follow the law of the lord

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 coming at me

Just missing
Sometimes I think all you doing me is just listen
I thought that I was special
That's what you told me

Hold me
Stop acting 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 was 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


(Just because you went away, my doors are not locked,
want to come back home, all you gotta do is knock)

Ya see, I left home a boy, I returned as a man
Full grown, and I'm still not able to stand
(I gave you a hand)
Well... but I was looking the wrong way

Figured out the plan, then I started to pray
And that prayer, took me from here to over there
Back to over here,
Now they 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 shall not steal)
But, what if he stole from me?
(Thou shall not kill)

But what if he's tryin' to kill me?
(Thou shall not, take my, name in vain, no matter how hard it rains, withstand the pain)


Our father, who art in heaven
I'm not ashamed to ask for guidance, at 27
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 must of been a fool to ever doubt you


I'm ready to meet him

    General CommentMy favourite from DMX. I can do without the 2 minute prayer intro, however. Anyways, reminds me of the story of Job which climaxes in a heated verbal exchange between god and Job. Just like Job, DMX eventually agrees to submit to god, but not before getting off some zingers that god chooses not to answer (can't answer).
