Hey, hey used ta be where I could only trust me and myself
And then that heavy metal devil that would send em straight ta hell wit it
Thought it was no helpin it
Selfishness was celibate
I sell a bit but I make sure I don't sit up in that cell a bit
Yell a bit but only when hurt came for certain
Illiterate ain't know that the word came, but then that word
Hit me and unblinded me
Jesus paid a price for me that's how I gained the right ta be
The son of God I'd like ta be
Changed my heart, gave me a desire for his work, mayne
Kill me if you want but I'm gon get back up out that dirt, mayne
Not yet what I'm gonna be
But not what I used to be
God bless His name forever who would choose me and start usin me
Used to love my sinnin' fulla greed fulla hate
I might say that i love Jesus but that talk was really fake
I'd be lustin' for your cousin if it wasn't for His grace
Yeah, He took me outta nothin' and he made ya boy a saint

Yeah, they tell me sugar coat it, dumb it down but I can't
Might as well deny the Christ and be ashamed but I ain't
I'm a saint 8 xs

Till the day I see the grave I'm going hard in the paint
It's the only hope we got that's why I'll die for the faith
I'm a saint 8 xs

You got ta understand Jesus agreed back in eternity
To sign a bloody covenant and take a deadly turn for me
He ain't just agree, he fulfilled it to the death of em
He took that bloody cup that's meant for us straight to the neck
And yeah
He swallowed all that bitterness
That pain and affliction
Ain't a soul in hell with pain comparable to this one
Brought me to repentance and told me I'm blood purchased
And daily I'm conformed to his holiness so I worship
Jesus finished the work
He resurrected on high
That means that he beat death
And best believe so will I
See some believe they can fly, but I believe I can die
Resurrect, leave the earth, and live forever with God
He will march through the sky while the stars sing his praises
The planets dance around and the universe is amazed and
Me I get to gaze upon his beauty for days
Man if I could be anything baby I'd be a saint

Yeah, they tell me sugar coat it, dumb it down but I can't
Might as well deny the Christ and be ashamed but I ain't
I'm a saint 8 xs

Till the day I see the grave I'm going hard in the paint
It's the only hope we got dats why I'll die for the faith
I'm a saint 8 xs


Now, now you might think I'm crazy like some kinda urban misfit
But first I hated church
I'd only pray to get my wish list
I'd be just like you doing my dance up in the club, folk
I promise I ain't choose it
I was chosen to be loved on
Eyes low, blowing dro that's the life I used to know
But Jesus chopped me up and slowed me down just like that Houston flow
A dead man, til somebody hit me with the hardest facts
The Gospel hit my heart
I guess that's what ya call a heart attack
I'm looking at Ephesians 2
Like what did Jesus see in you
It s' nothin by His grace he chose to love on folk like me and you
And I don't understand it
Homie I neva planned it
I was chasing money and fast women and man then
I met the great I am, son of man, or the lamb
Snatched ya boy up outta hell
And got me working for his plans
Used think i was the man till I met Him
All that arrogance and pride I dead t'em and fo'get em
I'm' a SAINT!

Yeah, they tell me sugar coat it, dumb it down but I can't
Might as well deny the Christ and be ashamed but I ain't
I'm a saint 8 xs

Till the day I see the grave I'm going hard in the paint
It's the only hope we got dats why I'll die for the faith
I'm a saint 8 xs
