Here are two songs I’ve been listening to a lot recently.  Thought I would share them with you. Enjoy

This is from Lecrae’s new record Rehab.  I picked it up a little while back and this is by far my favorite song.  The past week or so I’ve been listening to this song on repeat in my office when I’m working.  It’s something I need to hear and be reminded of often.

Hook:
I could play the background
I could play the background
‘Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

Verse 1:
It’s evident you run the show, so let me back down
You take the leading role, and I’ll play the background
I know I miss my cues, know I forget my lines
I’m sticking to your script, and I’m reading all your signs (Aye)
I don’t need my name in lights, (Aye) I don’t need a starring role
Why gain the whole wide world, If I’m just going lose my soul?
And my ways ain’t purified, don’t live according to Your Word
I can’t endure this life without Your wisdom being heard
So word to every dancer for a pop star
‘Cause we all play the background, but mine’s a rockstar
Yeah, so if you need me I’ll be stage right
Praying the whole world would start embracing stage fright
So let me fall back, stop giving my suggestions
‘Cause when I follow my obsessions, I end up confessin’
That I’m not that impressive, matter of fact
I’m who I are, a trail of stardust leading to the superstar

Hook

Verse 2:
Yo, I had a dream that I was captain of my soul
I was master of my fate, lost control, and then I sank
So I don’t want to take the lead, ’cause I’m prone to make mistakes
All these folks who follow me, goin’ end up in the wrong place
So just let me shadow you, just let me trace your lines
Matter of fact, just take my pen, here, you create my rhymes
‘Cause if I do this by myself, I’m scared that I’ll succeed
And no longer trust in You, ’cause I only trust in me
And see, that’s how you end up headed to destruction
Paving a road to nowhere, pour your life out for nothin’
You pulled my card, I’m bluffin’, You know what’s in my hand
Me, I just roll and trust you, You cause the dice to land
I’m in control of nothing, follow You at any cost
Some call it sovereign will, all I know is you the boss
And man, I’m so at ease, I’m so content
I’ll play the background, like it’s an instrument

Hook

Bridge:
I know I’m safest when I’m in Your will, and trust Your Word
I know I’m dangerous when I trust myself, my vision blurred
And I ain’t got no time to play life’s foolish games
Got plenty aims, but do they really Glorify Your name?
And it’s a shame, the way I want to do these things for You, yeet
Don’t even cling to you, take time to sit and glean from You
It seems like You were patient in my ignorance
If ignorance is bliss, it’s ’cause she never heard of this

Hook

This is another song I’ve been listening to a lot.  It’s by Trip Lee and it’s called Invasion.  I love the music video for it.

Verse 1:
Creation’s groaning, lost their hope and feel they always closed in Lots to cope with, on the ropes, wish they was in the open This broken world is so dim, our souls are searching, groping For one with hope to hold us close, and set goodness in motion I remember growing up in Dallas, I thought me and my close kin Was more than straight, our folks was great ,not broke that paper flowed in Not boasting man, just saying in my brain I didn’t know then That all went wrong, and it just can’t go right like a broke pen My mind was blind and cloaked in, but then that foolishness departed I saw this thing’s an ocean, and we just tryna swim real far but But can’t nobody float when we ain’t got boats or no fins We need a hero to go in, cause our solutions don’t win Education can’t fix it, more dough just leads to more sin Medicine is temporary, government seems so thin With all these weighty problems, that ain’t shrinking they just growing Who’s adequate to save us, how about He knew no sin?

Chorus:
Like a G5 yeah you rushed to rescue me Took a cross in exchange for a crown to save me You began the work and I know you’ll finish And make all things right when you come back Cause you’re my hero, you already saved the day Cause you’re my hero, and I know you’re coming back for me

Verse 2:
God is not pleased man, it’s clear that His standards missed The world is running rampant with, sin it’s an abandonment Man is feeling stranded, feeling hopeless since his banishment God is angry at the distortion and the mismanagement Evil is at work, but don’t be thinking He can’t handle it He promised He would do away with all of it, dismantle it He’s put up with this damage in His world, but He’s promised us That He’ll destroy all His enemies and then He’ll walk with us New Heaven, new Earth that’s where all His sheep dwell Cause Jesus succeeded in every part of life that we failed Died the death we couldn’t die, paid our price with 3 nails Began the work He promised, in the end we all will be well Already beat his enemies and when His Kingdom’s realized All those who oppose Him will see Jesus with some real eyes Deliverance is offered us, the hero He is urging us Salvation is exclusive to His people who have turned to trust
Jai:
I give my gratitude(Jesus). You died to make all things new. My knight in armour when our world is fallen. Your love’s never failing. I find safety in your arms
