In A World
Where it's hard to relate, easy to hate, a duty to retaliate, is it really to late. In a world where people act funny, when they have much money, their days aren't sunny, and they are so cunning. Chorus: In a world, in a world, in a world;
Where we do things in excess, while our lives are in a mess, because we're filled with bitterness, because the Lord we won't confess. In a world we see anger understood, when we do all that we could, to be as bad as we would, because we hate what is good.
Chorus: In a world, in a world, in a world where life isn't defined, because the battles for the mind, our conscience with guilt rewinds, and peace is hard to find. In a world where others will distract, because they want us off the track, which causes us to react,then we have to pay them back.
Chorus: In a world, in a world, in a world, In a world we don't understand, in a world, where we're all in God's hand. In a world where God has a purpose for each of us, with his word to support us; it let's us know, what we ought to say, how we ought to act, how we ought to live. Chorus: In a world
A while back there was a time, when there seemed to be nothing but darkness in sight, this was the thought I had in my mind, as one in the desert in the middle of the night. No comfort from friends or loved ones to cheer me, no one to blame for wrong or right, only myself was all I could see, while in this desert in the middle of the night.
Chorus: There's a lesson in this story for us to learn, God own all and has the power even despite, He's a stronghold for us if we only turn, with his vision there is no night. Barely understanding my own situation, afraid of the unknown; God gave me a consolation, that I was never alone. Even though it appeared to me to be a lack of light, God owns the desert and with his vision, there is no night. Chorus
As I look back on the time of my life, to the places I have been, through bitterness anger and strife, He was and is my constant friend. As the system seem to say how twisted up I may be, at least I'm on the right way, because God is leading me. Chorus: God is leading me, leading me, through a course of many test, God is leading me, leading me, to be my very best. He's leading me
As our society ooh's in ah's over events they see and hear, while they look out very far, the same problem very near. Chorus: But God is leading me, leading me, to judge myself, He's leading me, leading me, to pray for everyone else, He's leading me. My life here may be marred, by some decision that's been made, my testimony scarred, but I'm still not afraid. I won't be finished with my life, until it's time for me to go, through these stresses and the strife, the Lord still loves me so. Chorus
God is the creator of all, and to him all things are known; He choose us as stewards of these things, and none of this stuff we own. Our gifts and talents are from Him, into our lives he has sown, all credit and praise that come with them, all glory and praise He own. Chorus: Everything that we have is His and to him all things are known, there's nothing we can do or give, because everything he own. We may have been called to preach, and to all the world we're known, many people our ministries have reached and none of the honor we own. We may be the best actor, ever the world has known, but keep in mind this factor that our abilities we don't own. Chorus: We may be the most attractive person we think, from a baby we have grown, something must into our mind and heart sink; that even our bodies we don't own. Chorus: As I finish with the words of this song, from the one who is well known; I thank him for the words I hope their not to long, because even this song he own.
Into this world we're birthed, we don't know the plan, we don't know our worth, we don't understand. As we live we grow, then decisions we must make, the path we choose to go, the road we choose to take. Chorus: Our focus should be on the Lord above, looking down on us with love, not because of what we do, but because of what he's done, our focus should be on the Lord. The problems on the way, issues others may not know, there's things we cannot say, stuff we cannot show. We have ourselves well trained, how from others to hide all our struggles and our pain, just eating us up inside. Chorus: We don't have to live this way, from day to week and month, no matter what the system say, we don't have to front. We were made for God, For our lives he has a plan, to people this may seem odd, get your focus off of man. Chorus: Our focus should be on the Lord above, looking down on us with love, not because of what we do but because of what he's done, our focus should be on the Lord.
Each and everyday we live, we grow and learn; Everyday we give, we go and earn. All our actions, our likes, all our duties and dislikes. There's motive to all that we do, maybe it's something in life we've gone through. Chorus: Why do we do, what we do, when we do it? (twice) How we treat each other each and everyday, Is it a prepared plan; or only in what we say. The system wants to determine for you, that all it say's is true. (Chorus: twice) Souls sold in trade, a people who were whole, many purchases were made, greed, all done for gold. Drugs in certain neighborhoods this is a purpose to, deprive thoughs of the goods, while destroying a certain few. Chorus: Why do we do what we do? Why do we do, what we do, when we do it. Is it because of fear, why do we do what we do, is it because of prejudice? Why do we do what we do, when we do it? Is is because of ignorance? Why do we do what we do? It's because of sin.
It has always been my desire, to be different. Since I'm unique in my own way. It's my very own preference. And it will be my choice, as I say; I just want to be different, (repeat) since I'm not like everyone else, I just want to be myself. Wanting to be different (repeat) People have many ways to describe, a person who is not like everyone else. All of us should soon realize, that we are individuals and be ourselves. That's my goal, all I want is to be different. All I want to be is unique, this is my own preference, this is what I seek. I understand, sometimes a life like this is not easy. I understand, sometimes I may be sad, sometimes it can be frustrating for my mind, and sometimes makes me mad. Chorus: I still want to be different (repeat) It doesn't matter what the cost may be. I want to be different (repeat) because of personal preference, and also because I'm me.
Presents and singing both or nice, trees decorated with all of their lights, smiling faces not thinking twice, that christmas is about Christ. The hustle and bustle to try and find, the right gift for thoughs we have in mind, not so much as caring about the price, not thinking that christmas is about Christ. Chorus: I'm talking about christmas, yes christmas; this time is about Christ. He came here to give His life, that's why christmas is about Christ. The sound of music as if from above, music playing that we all love, no ill will or hurt, for most no strife, but no desire, for him who is the Christ. Year after year, the same attitude we take, year after year we make the same mistake, until this day, we're as quite as church mice, then on this day we celebrate the birth of Christ. Chorus: I'm talking about christmas, yes christmas, this time is about Christ. He came to give his life, that why christmas is about Christ.
Please let me tell you a story, that's very true, It's about a man we here so much about, He came here to share His life with me and you, please, friend listen don't try and figure it out. He showed us a way to take, by the example of his own life, He's very real not a fake, He is christmas, He is Christ. Chorus: Is christmas with you? I'm not talking about santa claus, don't you even have a clue? Christ gave His life so we can live too; that's if christmas is with you. Don't get me wrong, this myth of santa has been around for sometime, but he has never saved a soul, he has caused the little ones to smile, for a while; But the Christ of christmas can make you whole. God's whole purpose, and why He gave, to us rebels, who are born slaves He wants to save us from sin, and make us new. Please allow the Christ of christmas to come and live with you. Chorus: Is christmas with you? I'm not talking about santa claus; friend don't you even have a clue? Christ gave His life so we could live too; That's if christmas is with you.
Is it when the snow begins to fall? Is it when we holler deck the hall? Is it when we go to visit kin? Is buying a gift for a friend? When is christmas? Is it when the fine food we smell? Is it to others we tell? I love you, because of this day, this is something I should say. Chorus: Christmas when is christmas? It's not based on anything, we can do or say; christmas, when is christmas? It's more than just one day. Is it an occasion we've set? Is it about a person we never met? Or is it a time we regret, when is christmas? Is it a person, who we doubt? Who we can't figure out, then we roam around about. Is it when we must pretend? Is it when we must defend? Our feelings on a certain thing, or to give honor to the true king. Chorus: Christmas, when is christmas? It's not based on anything we can do are say. Christmas, when is christmas? Christmas is more than just one day.
On this day, many people can't see or hear, it's a time when stress seem to appear, some friends and relatives don't feel very near, for many christmas is just one day of the year. On this day people get themselves in debt, buying trinkets and gifts others will soon forget, distress to the point of many tears, not knowing that christmas is more than one day of the year. Chorus: Christmas is every day of the year, our hearts should be filled with joy and cheer, everywhere we go, let the people know, that christmas is every day of the year. So many people live their lives with regret, over past experience they frown and fret, simply, because of a person they never met, one who when they meet they won't soon forget. Chorus: It's okay to have money, it's okay to have a right fear, it's not okay to be without peace, joy and cheer. It's not okay just to celebrate once a year, please take to heart this message when you hear. Chorus: Christmas is every day of the year, our hearts should be filled with joy and cheer, everywhere we go, let the people know, christmas is every day of the year.
The scriptures say; "all of our works are as filthy rages" and this is a fact. Jesus is the only way for us to get back on track. The only way this could have been done, God had to send His only begotten son; to die on the cross for our sins and be buried and He arose again. Many people think, they will go to heaven by going to church and doing what they should. But they will be shocked to know that they can't do enough good. You can't do enogh good to get you through the pearly gates, I know what I'm sinnging you might hate. You can't do enogh good to get you to heaven. You might go to church, pray and give speak in tongues; but you will not get to heaven for what you have done. You can't do enough good to get you to heaven. You might go to church, pray and give. This doesn't mean with God you will live. You can't do enough good to get you to heaven. If God would ask you why He should let you in, will you speak of all the good you've done then. And out of all of the works, which do think God will admire; He will say no , did you accept my son; if you say no He's cast you into the lake of fire. You can't do enough good to get you through the pearly gates I know what I'm singing you might hate. You can't do enough good to get you to heaven. It doesn't matter who you may be, it you truly want to be free. You can't do enough good to get you to heaven.
