Tell the World
by Lecrae



(Chorus)
Now I'mma tell the world, tell em
I'mma tell it everywhere I go
Tell the world, tell em
Yea I'mma billboard
Tell the world, tell em
Cast Him like a radio
Tell the world you are to know
I'm brand new

(Verse 1)
Uh, I know one thing's true
I don't even really deserve to know you
But I... I'm a witness that you did this
And I'm brand new so I... I'm ready to go
And I'mma tell the world what they need to know
A slave to myself but you let me go
I tried gettin high but it left me low
You did, what they could never do
You cleaned up my soul and gave me life, I'm so brand new
And that's all that matters
I aint love you first, but you first loved me
In my heart I cursed ya, but you set me free
I gave you no reason to give me new seasons, to give me new life, new
Breathin
But you hung there bleedin
And you died for my lies, and my cheatin, my lust, and my greedin
What is a man, huh? that you're mindful of em?
And what do I have to deserve this love?

(Chorus)
Tryna make the moments last
Holdin on to the past
But like a hero in a dream
Christ came and He rescused me!
Now I'mma tell the world, tell the world, tell em
I'mma tell it everywhere I go
Tell the world, tell em
Yea I'mma billboard
Tell the world, tell em
Cast Him like a radio
Tell the world you are to know
I'm brand new

(Verse 2)
I can't offer you nothin, but your care and kindness keep comin
And your love is so unconditional, I get butterflies in my stomach
I got the old me in the rearview, gotta new me, gotta clear view
I was so dead, I couldn't hear you
Too deep in sin to come near you
But you drew me in, and cleaned me up
And take me home and beamed me up
Before you do, just let me tell the truth
And let these folks know that I done seeing your love
And it's everlastin, infinite
It goes on and on, you can't measure it
Can't quench your love, they can't separate us from the love of God
It's no estimate
My face look the same, my frame done rearranged
But I changed, I promise I aint the same
Your love is so deep, you suffered and took pain
And died on the cross to gimme a new name
Aint nothin like I seen before
I gotta beam to glow
Was low, down, and dirty but you cleaned me Lord
You looked after me, you keep rockin me
Imma tell the world and aint nobody stoppin me

(Chorus)
Tryna make the moments last
Holdin on to the past
But like a hero in a dream
Christ came and He rescused me!
Now I'mma tell the world, tell the world, tell em
I'mma tell it everywhere I go
Tell the world, tell em
Yea I'mma billboard
Tell the world, tell em
Cast Him like a radio
Tell the world you are to know
I'm brand new

(Verse 3; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
He is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
Yea, I'm brand new

(Chorus)
Now I'mma tell the world, tell the world, tell em
I'mma tell it everywhere I go
Tell the world, tell em
Yea I'mma billboard
Tell the world, tell em
Cast Him like a radio
Tell the world you are to know
I'm brand new
