Before I Die

Kirk Franklin30 Jun 2014

Lyrics

Brothers and sisters

I'm feelin' real good cuz it ain't over

Right before I die I gotta live

Live out my dreams

So I can be what He planned for me

Not just for me but so they can see

Much more of Him and less of

Right before I die I gotta

Love my enemies forgive the past

And set 'em free so I can free

Free up the things

Every blessing God has for me

See it's for me not just for you

I had to learn from what I've been through

I can't go through that way again

Be hurt by you that way again

It's not the end

I used to be afraid to die

I used to be afraid to try

Cause I was too afraid of knowing

What failing looked like

But the son came to give me life

Now I feel like I can touch the sky

I'm ready if you're ready

Get up and live right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

Get up and live right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

Right before I die I gotta

Change

Change how I think

Change how I speak

I'm not the same

So when I speak

You don't hear the pain

No longer weak

With no one to

Right before I die I gotta

Become more like you

Take up my cross

To count the cost

Cause I was lost

That's why I praise you

You're the only God

I don't know what they do

But I know

I used to be afraid to die

I used to be afraid to try

Cause I was too afraid of knowing

What failing looked like

But the son came to give me life

Now I feel like I can touch the sky

I'm ready if you're ready

Get up and live right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

Get up and live right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

 

So the next time you think of me

And you wonder where I would be

Without each blessing that helped me to see

Life is much more than things

And how you live is more than how you sing

When I die what did I really mean I mean

 

Say what Say what now

 

As we proceed to give you what you need

Somebody anybody everybody scream

 

I used to be afraid to die

I used to be afraid to try

Cause I was too afraid of knowing

What failing looked like

But the son came to give me life

Now I feel like I can touch the sky

I'm ready if you're ready

Get up and live right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

Get up and live right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

Right now right now right now right now

 

Lord have mercy

I told you it ain't over for you

I see you livin'

I see you makin' it

Right before I live I have to die
