Gotta Be

Christ Mocked

Kanye sings
JESUS IS KING
It is 2019
Gotta be austere
To be popular
Gotta be a scholar
Not a carpenter
But the branch broke
And it wouldn’t heal
Till he woke up
Until he kneeled
He’s got the armor now
He will make it
When it’s real it shines
You can’t fake it
It’s in your words
Deeds
Your face
Gotta be
In a state of Grace
