Nothing guarantees that I will see tomorrow,

I’m fortunate enough to make it through the day,

I know that every moment that I have is borrowed,

Reality is knowing all I really own is my faith,

My faith (x6)

All I really own is my faith,

My faith (x6)

Should’ve been dead long ago,

Or looking past bars in my window,

Everything I knew about this life I was living,

Was based off of EBT and being dead broke,

With my big brother living just to gang bang,

And my pops caught up in that dope game,

My feet were traveling a road,

That would have me on a crash course doing the same thang,

But then I met God’s providence,

And I learned about a hope that was prominent,

Fa-Faith came to me and it changed my life,

At a time that my pride was dominant,

And it seemed like death was definite,

But it bowed to a God that’s infinite,

When He spoke right to me and He reached right through me,

And I saw the display of His eminence, uh,

Like that I was born again,

That minute I knew that I was born to win,

No more living in emptiness,

Finally my life started making sense,

I know now that I’ve been heaven sent,

My trust in Christ is evident,

He took my sin and embarrassment,

And when He died on the cross He buried it,

He buried it, He buried it,

When He died on the cross He buried it,

He took my sin and embarrassment,

And when He died on the cross He buried it,

He buried it, He buried it,

When He died on the cross He buried it,

He took my sin and embarrassment,

So I take my faith and I cherish it, yo,

V2

Trying to come up on the day to day,

A little more money and I’ll have it made,

Just gotta get that house, gotta get that car,

Gotta live that dream, gotta be that star,

Not knowing it would fade away,

I kept trying to fill up an empty space,

Founded up in my heart it was black and grey,

But the light came in and established faith,

Trying to be an American idol,

Kept me chasing every one of Americas idols,

What I really needed was a state of revival,

So that I could know the one they talk about in the bible,

Cuz the world isn’t kind to me,

The old man hates who I’m trying to be,

My flesh wants nothing but to lie to me,

But that’s why the Truth came to die for me,

So I can be free from the tyranny,

To kill this doubt that resides in me,

He made me new so that I can see what I couldn’t see,

See the irony,

No more chasing after lifestyles that appear clean but then leave a stain,

No more following the footsteps of a culture that’s being led astray,

No more chasing that status when all it does I leave me in disarray,

And my pride is not objective,

So I’m done being subjected,

No longer will I chase acceptance from my sin that’s been rejected,

There’s no need to be living in death when I serve a God that’s resurrected, yo,
