  • Lecrae - Don't waste your LifeListen to Track Share on FacebookPrint it
Don't wanna waste my life

I know a lot of people out there scared they gone die
Couple of em thinking they'll be livin' in the sky
But while I'm here livin' man I gotta ask why, what am here for I gotta figure out
Waste my life? no I gotta make it count
If Christ is real then what am I gon do about
Everything in Luke 12:15 down to 21 you really oughta go and check it out
Paul said if Christ ain't resurrected then we wasted our lives
Well that implies that our life's built around Jesus being alive
Everyday I'm living tryin' to show the world why
Christ is more than everything you'll ever try
Better than pretty women and sinning and living to get a minute of any women and men that you admire
It ain't no lie
We created for Him
Outta the dust He made us for Him
Elects us and He saves us for Him
Jesus comes and He raises for Him
Magnify the Father why bother with something lesser
He made us so we could bless Him and to the world we confess him
Resurrects him
So I know I got life matter fact better man I know I got Christ
If you don't' see His ways in my days and nights
You can hit my brakes you can stop my lights Man I lost my rights
I lost my life
Forget the money, cars and toss that ice
The cost is Christ
And they could never offer me anything on the planet that'll cost that price.

(Dwayne Tryumph)
Armed and dangerous
So the devil just can't handle us
Christian youth them a stand wid us
Livin' n driven, given a vision, fulfillin the commission he handed us
London to Los Angeles
Da rap evangelist
Ma daddy wouldn't abandon us
"I gotta back pack fulla tracks plus I keep a Johnny Mac"
So are you ready to jam with us
So let's go, gimme the word an lets go
Persecution lets go
Tribulation lets go
Across the nation let's go
Procrastination lets go
Hung on the cross in the cold
Died for da young and the old
Can't say you never know
Heaven knows
How many souls are going to hell or to heaven so we gotta go in and get em

Yeah do it for Christ if you trying to figure what to do with your life
If you making a lot money hope you doing it right because the money is God's you
Better steward it right
Stay focused if you ain't got no ride
Your life ain't wrapped up in what you drive
The clothes you wear the job you work
The color your skin naw you Christian first
People living life for a job
Make a lil money start living for a car
Get em a house a wife kids and a dog
When they retire they living high on the hog
But guess what they didn't ever really live at all
To live is Christ yeah that's Paul I recall
To die is gain so for Christ we give it all
He's the treasure you'll never find in the mall
Your money your singleness marriage talent and time
They were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine
That's why it's Christ in my rhymes
That's why it's Christ all the time
See my whole world is built around him He's the life in my lines
I refused to waste my life
He's too true to chase that ice
Here's my gifts and time cause I'm constantly trying to be used to praise the Christ
If he's truly raised to life
Then this news should change your life
And by his grace you can put your faith in place that rules your days and nights.


Not that its my first time to hear this song but I just want to say God bless you, Lecrae. It's your music that helped me quit secular music. I appreciate your endeavour to transform gosple music to fit the tastes of the young generation. Nice work!

Even after getting a job, graduating college, and retiring. Your life will be wasted if you didn't live for the sake of the Gospel!!!!
