cry no more

One day I won’t cry no more
Can’t wait for the day when people won’t die no more
Daddy’s won’t say, “Bye” no more; lie no more
In the streets bullets won’t fly no more

Won’t feel no pain no more
Won’t have to push, pull, won’t have to strain no more
Won’t have to walk lame no more,
Won’t have to play the game no more

One day we’re takin’ off, baby
and ever since the Lord saved me
I’ve been waitin’ for the day we can say, “it’s all gravy”
It’s all crazy tryin’ seeing to see life when it’s all hazy
And how can I persist to do right when I’m all lazy?
Feel me? Too much pain: it all ails me
Vexed, ‘cause I can feel the effects of “the Fall” daily
The pain in my chest is strong
Let’s get on, come Lord, quick, bring on Your eschaton

End the search, start the new earth, flex your true worth
Honor your Son, let Him come, perfect the new birth
And we don’t gotta prove that God is cool
just know when God is through, no more godless rule
So I’m anxious to praise the Ancient of Days,
my brain’s still amazed at how I can see that pain is a phase,
soon to be eclipsed at the Son’s return,
when we get what He gives and not what we’ve earned

There’s coming a day that’ll be much better than now
No more hurts, no more work by the sweat of your brow
No more drunk drivers drivin’all out of control
No more flats and being stuck on the side of the road

Believe me, no more turning on the T.V
Hearing kids say, “For the price of coffee you can feed me.”
In fact, no more anthrax in the mail, no jail, no blizzards, no twisters, no hail

It’ll be the end of rain and the end of planes
being highjacked and flown into window panes
It’ll be nice just, Imagine a world that’ll be righteous, no more Middle East crisis
No more drugs, plus no more thugs and pimps
No more beat-downs, no more getting mugged for Timbs
No need for ramps, no need for wheel chairs,
No need for weaves cause you’ll feel you real hair


One day when this life is over
We will live forever together with our king

Now Christ is the Rock, and believe me, the Rock’s steady
He drops heavy, so stop screaming,“I’m not ready”
God said He’s coming like a thief,kid, so peep it,
He’ll creep it’s meant to be unknown like a secret
This is what many are having “beef” with
God’s rotisserie style will make a brother’s teeth grit
‘cause He’s quick, but not according to our concept of speed
looking at man, He thought about the depth of our needs

So what this means is, He’s not slow,
the King is waitin’ to bring kids into Christ where real “Bling” is
So they can sing His praise all because they’ve seen this
God spill His blood to show His love at its zenith
He proved He “cut” for them, look what He gave up for them
Paid His life since you can’t pay bucks for sin
Justice then teamed up with longsuffering
Big ups to Him who gave you and me time to trust in Him
