Lecrae

While there’s no sure route to carving out a significant presence in the music industry, there’s always something to be said for remaining true to one’s self. Since arriving on the scene with his 2004 debut Real Talk, Lecrae has been occupying two different yet not entirely opposing worlds: the sacred and the profane. Which is to say that his art, not unlike his life, has been as much about inspiring the streets, and about justice, freedom, and interrogating real-world issues, as it is about his personal journey of faith. His music has long served as a call to arms for those willing to sacrifice for a cause beyond themselves. Still, he won’t be boxed in to any genre or made to serve as a poster-child for any particular agenda. Following a host of celebrated … more »

Dear you, yeah, you, the person listenin'
It's God, usin' me, tryin' to get your attention, yeah
See, He remembers the first day that He made you
Molded your lungs for the breath that He gave you
Not to mention the day He saved you
And when He opened your eyes by the spirit Christ was raised through
Did I mention that He forgave you?
And had His flesh ripped off for the sin you was enslaved to
Now it seems you too far gone, you wanna turn back
But you're unsure if you'll be welcome home
So you figure you just leave it alone
But you're addicted to yourself, we both know you can't see it alone
This is an intervention, Jesus intervened
He intercedes on behalf of a sinner's deeds
This is an intervention because the Lord hurts
Before it gets worse, start making a reverse

I pay You no attention, lose my direction, all I chase is vanity
I forget I've been forgiven, your love I been given, you graced on me lavishly
You were born on earth, on the cross you died for me
You forgive my depravity, You are my reality

With cold water we drink, hot water we cook
But lukewarm does nothin', it just sits and it looks
If that's you, imagine these as the words of Christ
"I remember you loved me, I remember your light
It used to shine bright, but now it's so dim
It used to be about us, but now it's 'bout them
You can't win playin' heart games
But I love you even when your light's off in your dark shame
When you lay down and profane me
Or when your bloodstream contains the things that would defame me
When nobody knows that you claim me
Or when you mess your life up, get mad, and wanna blame me
I still want you back, I won't punish you
I took that on the cross, because I wanted you
I might discipline and chastise
But if you got what you deserve you'd be in hell with other bad guys"

I pay You no attention, lose my direction, all I chase is vanity
I forget I've been forgiven, your love I been given, you graced on me lavishly
You were born on earth, on the cross you died for me
You forgive my depravity, You are my reality

You made it this far, and that's a big move
But your addiction is hurting your other friends too
Some of 'em miss you, some of 'em dissed you
But they was hurt and struggling to forgive you
And they hated how addiction got the best of you
Chose a lie when God promised the best for you
If you realize you're livin' in sin
Just confess and realize you're forgiven of sin

I pay You no attention, lose my direction, all I chase is vanity
I forget I've been forgiven, your love I been given, you graced on me lavishly
You were born on earth, on the cross you died for me
You forgive my depravity, You are my reality
