[Verse 1] Not another story how some rapper came to victory I don’t get the glory really it’s about His story So open up the Book to life, learn about Who saved my own Path to my redemption He’s The One Who paid the toll When it was taken on my soul, I was stuck inside a hole, would spiral out of control, He put them Angels on Patrol Protected me from things, that I don’t even know And kept me out of places I don’t even wanna go We should be locked up but we’re not cuz His favor outweighed getting caught up Could have been shot up, used to talk tough Had many knocked up thinking I’m hot stuff Internally hurting me from the constant perversity I was certainly thirstily seeking Something to remedy Really reckless in my ways, depraved in my condition But He saw through the craze, which only had me imprisoned Then He gave me a mission when I shouldn’t be breathing But His Grace is sufficient, now I’m free from them demons, Praise Jesus, reason why You get my praise You give my life meaning! Let’s Go!
[Chorus] I will lift my hands up, I will raise my voice high I will shout of Your love til the day that I die Everything that I have, all my worship I bring You’re The Reason I live, You’re The Reason I sing
You’re The Reason I live, You’re The Reason I sing
[Verse 2] Another morning I’m grateful, for the mercies I’m given In a world that is hateful, to The King that is risen Lord, forgive them like me, they know not what they do If they were really seeking Truth they’d see the answer is You! Like if you ever came across a cure for cancer and AIDS, would you share it with the world? That’s why I’m screaming His name Jesus! I thank You, Jesus! [Chorus]
[Bridge] Hallelujah, hallelujah, Hallelujah You’re The Reason I live, You’re The Reason I sing
[Verse 3] How could I go on with life, and never acknowledge The Light That ended my night like the sin that I write, About in all of my songs but left to follow The One Who would write all my wrongs and got me singing the Psalms See my flesh was the enemy, then He wept and did surgery During spiritual urgency, I’m in debt for eternity He was patient giving chances I mean hundreds and thousands So I will lift my hands high to The One that move mountains And my praise go on and on long after the trumpets have sounded
