[Verse One] Got to get my weight up Everyday that I wake up Is another day close to the grave Now there's a cross that I take up Everyday that I wake up It's good just to know that I'm saved That puts a smile on my face Just thinking about His grace I've been saved since five years old When momma told me to scrape All the food on the plate Plus the greatest story that's been told She taught me John 3:16 By the time I was 16 I was broadcasting my faith I was telling the good news I knew that I couldn't lose Especially if my behavior was straight 'Cause it's one thing to talk, it's another thing to live Like Christ when you get with your friends So you can show them how Christ, can transform a life In addition to forgiving your sins
[Chorus] Now if you're standing right here And you're hearing me loud and clear And when it comes to the message of Christ You ain't scared Let me hear you say- Go! Come on let me hear you say- Go! And if your in a good mood And you know that you can't lose If you talk to a person And give them the good news Let me hear you say- Go! Let me hear you say- Go!
[Verse Two] Sometimes it's beautiful Other times I'm fuming When I go to a funeral- why Because the preacher that's ruling The pulpit is fooling them Pulling the wool over their eyes So now what's a man to think When in every single case The preacher boldly exclaims Though he never claimed to be saved And he died from aids That he's still in a better place Now I leave confused And the people leave confused And the family is comforted, but It's under the false pretense That once a weekend Is all that Jesus wants So you know that it's our job To open up their eyes With the truth that's found in the script So we can't afford to hide, the treasure that's inside Let's bless the world with this wonderful gift Let's give it to them
[Verse Three] Can't be ashamed, of going against the grain Got to pray lest we fall into sin You know the sin of not, speaking the truth in the word of God 'Cause you're afraid of losing a friend Now if you saw your friend About to get hit by a car You would run and push them out of the way Because you love him, you would shove him To keep the taker from shoveling that brown dirt over his grave Now if you would go to great lengths To save a man's life 'Cause you don't want to see them die on the road Then tell me how much more Should you tell him about the Lord Because you care about the state of his soul Now there is so much more That I really wanted to say But I chose to keep it simple and light So keep teaching, keep preaching The world they need Jesus Much more than we need to be liked
