       ŅSEEK HIM FIRSTÓ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS

 

NEVERTHELESS, MANY WILL FIGHT WITH THIS

 

HOW DID GOD BECOME SECONDARY, ITÕS SCARY

 

SOME THINK THAT SERVING HIM MEANS YOUÕRE SHACKLED LIKE MARY MARY

 

NOT FREE TO DO ANYTHING, SO THEY OFFEND THE KING

 

ASKING WHAT RICHES CAN HE BRING, SO MANY SING

 

IN AN EFFORT TO GAIN WEALTH LOSING MORALS AND ETHICS

 

WHAT THEY WOULDNÕT DO IS NOW COMPROMISED BY HYPOTHETICS

 

LIKE SING ABOUT GOD AND LOSE FAME, FOR WHAT

 

IF I CHANGE MY GOOD-GIRL IMAGE THEN MORE FANS WOULD SHOW UP

 

WITH SEXY GIRLS IN MY VIDEO IÕM SURE TO BLOW UP

 

TO DOWNPLAY GOD FOR FAME THEY NEED TO GROW UP

 

THOUGH YOU MAY THINK IT, YOU DONÕT CONTROL YOUR LIFELINE ANYDAY

 

BUT ASK YOURSELF LIKE DREW, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY

 

WHOÕS THE PRIMARY CONTROLLER OVER YOUR BLESSINGS

 

IF SOMEONE PROVIDES FOR YOU WOULDNÕT YOU SEEK THEIR PRESENCE

 

YOU SAY YOU WOULD BUT CONTINUE WORLDLY BEHAVIOR

 

THEN LATER SAY, ŅI WANNA THANK JESUS, MY LORD AND SAVIORÓ

 

BUT WHAT YOUÕRE REALLY DOING IS THANKING HIM FOR GIVING

 

PROMISCUOUS WOMEN THAT WOULD COMPLEMENT YOUR LIVING

 

YOUÕRE THANKING HIM FOR THE MONEY FOR THE WEED TO SMOKE

 

AND KILLING YOURSELF BY DOING THINGS I DONÕT NEED TO QUOTE

 

AND ITÕS TRUE, GOD WILL BLESS THE UNJUST AND THE RIGHTEOUS

 

THE DIFFERENCE IS THE UNJUST WILL LIVE IN ETERNAL CHRISIS

 

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

SEEK, SEEK GOD FIRST, ALL THINGS ARE GIVEN BY

 

HIM, NO MATTER YOUR NEED, HE WONÕT DENY YOU BUT

 

FIRST, HIS KINGDOM INVOLVES RIGHTEOUS LIVING

 

IF YOU ACHIEVE THAT, HIS BLESSINGS WILL BE GIVEN

 

(REPEAT)

 

 

 

 

VERSE 2 (SOULJAH K)

 

 

 

WHY DO WE PUT THESE PHYSICAL,MATERIAL,WORLDLY TANGIBLE THINGS BEFORE GOD

 

TROPHY AFTER TROPHY, SHOW AFTER SHOW

 

THANKING GOD FOR THE VERY THING HE DONÕT PROMOTE

 

YOU THINK HEÕS MOVED BY THE THINGS THAT YOU DO

 

WHEN YOU CUSSINÕ IN YOUR SONGS AND YOU SMOKE WITH YOUR CREW

 

GETTING DRUNK, HAVING SEX WITH THESE GIRLS

 

GET ON STAGE AND SAY ŅGOD WE GIVE GLORY TO YOUÓ

 

ITÕS SUCH A CONTRADICTION WHEN WE SAY WE LOVE GOD

 

BUT NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THE WAY WEÕRE LIVING

 

THATÕS THE PROBLEM WITH THE WORLD TODAY

 

WE DONÕT GOT NO LIMITS, WE THINK ITÕS COOL JUST TO KEEP ON SINNING

 

I HOPE YOUÕRE LISTENING PLAYER, CAUSE I KNOW WHO I AM

 

MY ONLY QUESTION IS WHERE DO YOU STAND

 

WE NEED TO BE MORE SPECIFIC ABOUT THE WAY THAT WE LIVE

 

CAUSE THE WAY THAT WE LIVE IS WHATÕS GONNA DETERMINE OUR END

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

BRIDGE (AMBASSADOR)

 

 

 

TO THE GOSPEL IÕLL TELL ŌTIL IÕM OLD AND DRY

 

(REPEAT)

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 3 (DANA T.)

 

 

 

THANK YOU GOD, I HAVE ARRIVED

 

BIG HOUSE, FANCY CAR, IÕM MUCH OBLIGED

 

TOOK ME A WHILE, BUT I MADE IT THROUGH

 

CLIMBED THE CORPORATE LADDER AND I THOUGHT YOU KNEW

 

HAD TO COMPROMISE A LITTE ON WHAT I BELIVE

 

BUT IT WAS WELL WORTH IT, LOOK AT WHAT IÕVE ACHIEVED

 

THERE WAS A PRICE TO PAY FOR ALL MY SUCCESS

 

IÕVE OFFICIALLY EARNED MY SOCIAL STATUS

 

IÕM ON TOP OF THE WORLD, AND A LITTLE FLIRTY

 

STRAIGHT GANGSTA, BUT I AINÕT RIDINÕ DIRTY

 

THANK YOU GOD FOR BLESSING ME WITH ALL THIS WEALTH

 

YOU WANT ME PROSPEROUS AND LIVING IN GOOD HEALTH

 

AT LEAST THATÕS WHAT I HEARD CREFLO DOLLAR SAY

 

DONÕT HAVE TIME FOR CHURCH BECAUSE ITÕS OUT OF THE WAY

 

MATTER OF FACT, HAVENÕT READ MUCH OF THE WORD

 

IÕM SURE IÕM DOING FINE CAUSE IÕVE PROSPERED

 

I HEARD A VOICE SPEAK TO ME INSIDE MY HEAD

 

THE PROPAGANDA YOUÕRE PUSHING IS MISLEAD

 

ALL THE SUFFERING I DID, WAS IT DONE IN VAIN

 

SO WHY ARE YOU FALSELY USING MY NAME

 

I KNOW YOU NOT, YOU WORKER OF INIQUITY

 

YOUR FRUITS FROM YOUR TREE IS DISOBEYING ME

 

I PERSONALLY BORE YOU SINS, MY BODY HUNG ON A TREE

 

SO YOU WOULDNÕT DIE FOR SIN AND LIVE RIGHTEOUSLY

 

DONÕT BE LIKE THE MAN WHO BUILT HIS HOUSE IN THE SAND

 

PUT YOUR HAND IN MY HAND AND LETÕS CONQUER THE LAND

 

THAT WAS GIVEN TO YOU, THIS ISNÕT ALL FOR YOU

 

YOUR POSSESSIONS ARE NEEDED TO HELP OTHERS GET THROUGH

 

THIS IS A TEST OF YOUR FAITH AND NOT BEING SELFISH

 

AND ESTABLISHING WITH ME AN ETERNAL RELATIONSHIP

 

IF YOU TRUST AND SEEK ME FIRST IN ALL YOUR WAYS

 

IÕLL BE YOUR CHIEF CORNERSTONE FOR THE REST OF YOUR DAYS

 

 

 

 

CHORUS
