Mali, let's go get 'em

Gimme that joy I can't explain
Add extra peace that'll ease my pain
I hope that love that'll never change
Gimme dat (gimme dat)
Gimme dat (gimme dat)

Gimme that power to walk away
When another God wants to take Your place
As much of you as I can take
Gimme dat, gimme dat
Oh oh oh

Anybody ready
Oh, oh, oh
Ready for His glory
Oh, oh, oh
If you a seeker for life
Oh, oh, oh
Let me tell you this story
Oh, oh, oh
Every place that's dark
Oh, oh, oh

He will bring it to light
Oh, oh, oh
Hypocritical hearts backsliders
Liars time to get right
Oh, oh, oh
See I include myself
Oh, oh, oh
I cast my own stones
Oh, oh, oh

I'm the man in the mirror y'all
Oh, oh, oh
I can see my wrong
Oh, oh, oh
But I'm here by grace
Oh, oh, oh
Through Christ by faith
Oh, oh, oh
I had to make that choice
I had to open up my mouth and say

Gimme that joy I can't explain
Add extra peace that'll ease my pain
I hope that love that'll never change
Gimme dat (gimme dat)
Gimme dat (gimme dat)

Gimme that power to walk away
When another God wants to take Your place
As much of you as I can take
Gimme dat (gimme dat)
Gimme dat

Oh, oh, oh
Anybody tired
Oh, oh, oh
You want the show to end
Oh, oh, oh
Get the actors off stage
And let church begin
Oh, oh, oh
Do you want a revolution
Oh, oh, oh
You wanna hear a new song
Oh, oh, oh
God is cleanin' up house
Oh, oh, oh
At first he started right at home
Oh, oh, oh

No more miracle water
Oh, oh, oh
Prayer cloths from money and fame
Oh, oh, oh
Everybody got a title
But do you know your name
Oh, oh, oh
If we humble ourselves people
Oh, oh, oh
Fall on our face
Oh, oh, oh
And ask God everything in me
That's not right take it away

Yeah, gimme that joy that I can't explain
Add extra peace that'll ease the pain
I want that love that'll never change
Gimme dat (gimme dat)
Gimme dat (gimme dat)

Ooh, I want the power to walk away
When another God wants to take Your place
As much of you, Lord as I can take
Gimme dat, gimme dat

Yeah, gimme the joy that I can't explain
Add extra peace that'll ease the pain
I want that love that'll never change
Gimme dat (gimme dat)
Gimme dat (gimme dat)

Ooh, give me the power to walk away
When another God wants to take Your place
As much of you as I can take
Gimme dat, gimme dat

And I keep shelter today
'Cause I need you today
I can't get away
See, there's no escape
See whatcha done to me
I'm not the same ol' me
You took away everything
Now you're my everything

I just need you today
I cant get away
See, there's no escape
See whatcha done to me
I'm not the same ol' me
You took away everything
Now you're my everything

Give me that God who breathes life
Into the nostrils of man
A sovereign God who predestined
Creates for me time and again
I want a God who with brilliance and elegance 
decorated darkness with stars

The God who orchestrates the future
At the same time he knows where you are
Give me that God who supplies my needs
'Cause he owns all the cattle's on the hill
And He's the God that wipes my tears
He provides enough to pay all my bills

And gimme me that God, that's the God I'm talkn' 'bout
Gimme me that God, that's the God I'm talkn' 'bout
Gimme dat, gimme dat
Gimme dat

Gimme that joy I can't explain
Add extra peace that'll ease my pain
I want that love that'll never change
Gimme dat, gimme dat

Gimme the power to walk away
When another god wants to take Your place
As much of you as I can take
Gimme dat, gimme dat

Gimme that joy I can't explain
Add extra peace that'll ease my pain
I want that love that'll never change
Gimme dat, gimme dat

Gimme that joy I can't explain
Gimme that joy I can't explain
I am at a loss of words, now
I'm so happy, you make me happy, now
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Gimme that joy I can't explain
Add extra peace that'll
Add extra peace, ease my pain
I want that love that'll never change
Gimme dat, gimme dat, gimme dat
Gimme dat
