“J.I.F.E.”

[Verse 1:]
I opened up my eyes to the world and I see
They got a lot of guns and they aimin’ at me
‘Cause they say I love the church, I don’t care about the streets
That’s so far from the truth, why they lyin’ on me?
I’m where I’m supposed to be, tryna play my role
Staying faithful to the gospel, seen a lot of growth
Been a lot of testimonies all around the globe
And I ain’t braggin’, that’s from rapping ’bout what God has spoke
It used to be a gift, now it’s criticized
If my heart is for the church, why is this a crime?
Whatever happened to the days when the minister’s pride
Was speaking life into the body? I’m a bit surprised, better recognize

[Hook:]
Looking at the church, got my eyes on the streets
Looking at the world with their eyes on me
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh
Jesus Is For Everybody
Looking at the poor, got my eyes on the rich
Looking at the trap boys and the life of a prince
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh
Jesus Is For Everybody

[Verse 2:]
I open up my eyes to the church and I see
Them automatic weapons and they’re aiming at me
They say I’m preaching to the choir, people dyin’ in the streets
You’d be preaching to them too if you’ve seen them lately
No doubt is in my mind, it’s making perfect sense
Am I doing something wrong talking to the saints?
I’m just giving them my all, and I’m in my own skin
While I’m building up the body walking in his grace
While I’m talking to the church, I hope they overhear
We want the whole world to know we over here
I’m talking from the lawyers and the doctors to the corners with the choppers
To the homies in the barber chair, my whole career

[Hook:]
Looking at the church, got my eyes on the streets
Looking at the world with their eyes on me
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh
Jesus Is For Everybody
Looking at the poor, got my eyes on the rich
Looking at the trap boys and the life of a prince
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody

[Verse 3:]
Just for a moment can I stand in my own defense?
I had a brief talk with Kanye West
Dealing with Nick Cannon, only told my friends
The issue with Tech N9ne, a little more complex
Now I can tell you’re impressed, I’m talking with the stars
What good is that if I don’t speak to security guards?
Something’s wrong with my maturity, charity’s flaw
‘Cause I ain’t speakin’, man this whole family is lost
I guess the moral of the story is
Jesus Christ came for the notorious, and the saint
Grace for the less glorious, and the fame
Understand where the glory is, it’s in his name

[Hook:]
Looking at the church, got my eyes on the streets
Looking at the world with their eyes on me
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody
Looking at the poor, got my eyes on the rich
Looking at the trap boys and the life of a prince
What they talkin’ ’bout, huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody… huh?
Jesus Is For Everybody
