God Is Love Lyrics

The unconditional, critical mission, listen to

The indivisible, mystical, it was meant for you

And meant for me, infinitely

Even been to prisons to visit you

Ask, "What would Christians do?"

Well some are harassing Native Americans

If God is love, why is hate in the air again?

Search for Samaritans in the hood, misunderstood

A savior comes, will he only come for the good?

The lost tribe of Shabazz and the second class

God, I see you in the streets where the checks is cashed

Hear you in the heartbeat, hopin' that love'll last

I know you in the words, "Where the first is last"

They try to use math to quantify you

In 2005, you saved lives by the Bayou

I know you in the mouth of the spouse singing, "I do"

The most vital is how I describe you

Even when the hard times come

I'll be standing in your love

Grateful, grateful for this life

You turned on the light (hey, hey)

Even when the hard times come

I'll be standing in your love

Grateful, grateful for this life

You turned on the light

 

We were Buffalo Soldiers, dreadlocked Rastas

Praying to Jehovah, Rafa, in the back of cop cars

Even then we knew that love was not far

It's in the passion of the teachers and the rockstars

The Muslim sisters singing "allahu akbar"

It's coming from where Maya and Pop are

It's in the grandchild's stare up at Papa

"Love is love" became the mantra

The montage for creation, we need it in relation

When two ships pass, one love is the flotation

It's what God used to put the planet in rotation

It's what the culture used to build a hip hop nation

From the basement to the attic, where cookie show for magic

It's what we told the world when we said our lives matter

Turn the student to a master, hustler to a pastor

That's why I'm a rapper, it's all that I'm after

 

Even when the hard times come (Yeah I know that)

I'll be standing in your love (yeah oh, that's why I am)

Grateful, (so) grateful for this life

You turned on the light (hey, hey)

God your love has taught me that

Even when the hard times come (Oh, I know that I'll)

I'll be standing in your love (hey, and I am)

Grateful, grateful for this life (grateful)

You turned on the light (You turned on the light, yes you did)

When it's hard (yeah)

I know you're right there (Tell me where would I be?)

Placed it all (Without your love)

At your feet (Where would I be?)

I don't know (Without your light)

What tomorrow brings (Tell me where would I be?)

(Without your grace)

What I know is (I am so grateful, I am so grateful)

Oh oh, oh I know (oh oh)

Ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah

 

(‘Cause you are the light) Mmm hmm
