Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, for the cross

Ayyyyyyye got me running round got me running round
I been dodging heavy rounds from the haters underground
And to say they never got me I’d be lying through me teeth
But my Poppa sent a King to come to catch a body

#tbt early 2k I wrote this on a Thursday'bout that time I left my mama house to tie a knot to early
Wasn’t tryna hear the mayday from the tribe that fought to raise me
You can’t tell me nuthin I thought I was Rays kid

Every dollar to name was thrown away for what?
Signing papers to untie a knot they told me would blow up!
Ma told me child never come here life can be so unforgiving

Pride comes before a fall
Stones call for heavy lifting another brother in the stats
Fading like some chalk, fell to my knees
Didn’t see the cross like Rucker park, my God
I Had nothin else to say I been Wylin, heard a voice could tell that He was smiling

Then He told me

Every step of the way, never left ya lone
Take yo problems, fold em
Angels roll that stone away
Yeah Yeah, cause I’m the best friend you’ve ever had
I gave my life for you, so Ha, flash forward back to today
I get it I get it my Heavenly Father been down wit me pre pre-K
No way I could ever fall now
Because I got heavy insurance with no money down

Upon the brink of calvary
Where your wounds had set us free
From death came life and life made way
When they rolled the stone away

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, for the cross

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, for the cross

Sometimes the story of Jesus can be presented as somber and heavy, when in reality it produces new life and is cause for celebration. This remix of Crossroads Music’s “Redemption Song” was recorded live at an Easter service, communicating the life that Jesus brings to all with an upbeat musical flavor, live horn section, and choir.
