Something got you rattled? What is eating at your heart?
You seem a little hassled. I can see you’re battle scarred.
Life this side of heaven, mate, I know it can be hard,
but check Matthew 11:28 – Jesus’ calling CARD
Next word to rap with is SHOW
Bit late, sorry. Was off on holiday for a week.
I want people to see me with a smile on my face.
Some say I’m crazy – a real BASKET case.
Since the Lord saved me – overwhelmed by His grace –
I’ve been bringing the noise, we got joy in this place.

Rolling out the NOUNs, adverbs, adjectives.
Shuffling the words making new perspectives.

In the kingdom of heaven, everyone is accepted.

Happy Christmas, I may be late with the next entry.
It’s the greatest gift, yo, that we don’t deserve.
The Son of God came in a human birth

Divine sacrifice joining heaven and EARTH

Next week our random word for rapping is microscope.
It kinda fascinates me the different ways that I go about beginning to write the lyrics. Sometimes you get an initial concept early on, sometimes it’ll be a rhyme or line that will arrive first. This week I couldn’t get a hook in, and began writing lots of words beginning with S, thinking I’d really do an alliteration piece. But in the end, I’ve nicked the first four lines from another rap I wrote last year. My mate who writes gospel songs asked for a guest 16 bridge in one of his new tracks, and I was thinking about it on the way home and just went in after the opening lines from that, as the concept fitted what I wanted to do with the ‘saviour’ word this week. Basically it’s about randomly meeting up with a guy who turns out to be Jesus.
This guy comes up, calls me by my name,
but I don’t know him – is this some kinda game?
He says ‘Sit down’ and he’ll explain,
Tells me I’m the reason that He came.
Sent into a world of sin and shame,
bickering, bullying, insult and blame.
Death, disease, poverty and pain.
The Son, The SAVIOUR – one and the same.
Gives sight to the blind and healing the lame,
freeing the captives, breaking their chains.
Truth and life coursing through my veins,
I can’t believe it, replay the frame!
To turn my heart from a spark to a flame,
new life will start, with peace in my brain.
Into my life I let The Christ reign,
die to myself – no loss but gain.

Next week our random word for rapping with is WAREHOUSE.
Like water on glass, the TEARS stream down your face.
Healing the scars and screams of past disgrace.
Can’t be erased, but in place a new embrace.
There’s love in His gaze, so run into the arms of grace.
Next week our random word for rapping is: SLIPPER
A bit late this week, due to the busiest working week of my life taking over my brain. I’m quite pleased with this in the end:
Don’t wanna play the street life, I’d rather live the BEACH life –
Eat right, sleep tight, practice what I preach life.
Keep my speech and beats hype. My kids I’ve gotta teach right.
Receive Christ ‘cos He’s nice – my life He went and bleached white.
Next random word to rap with: Applause.
Might get it in before Christmas, we’ll see……..
