I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone

When the praises go up, the blessings come down

It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap

 

I don’t make songs for free, I make ’em for freedom

Don’t believe in kings, believe in the Kingdom

Chisel me into stone, prayer whistle me into song air

Dying laughing with Krillin saying something ’bout blonde hair

Jesus’ black life ain’t matter, I know I talked to his daddy

Said you the man of the house now, look out for your family

He has ordered my steps, gave me a sword with a crest

And gave Donnie a trumpet in case I get shortness of breath

 

I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone

Don’t be mad

I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him ’til I’m gone

When the praises go up

(Good God)

The blessings come down

Good God

When the praises go up (good God) the blessings come down

When the praises go up

(It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap)

The blessings come down

When the praises go up, the blessings come down

(Good God)

 

They booked the nicest hotels on the 59th floor

With the big wide windows, with the suicide doors

Ain’t no blood on my money, ain’t no Twitter in Heaven

I know them drugs isn’t close, ain’t no visit in Heaven

I know the difference in blessings and worldly possessions

Like my ex girl getting pregnant and her becoming my everything

I’m at war with my wrongs, I’m writing four different songs

I never forced you to forfeit it, I’m a force to be reconciled

They want four minute songs

You need a four hour praise dance performed every morn

I’m feeling shortness of breath, so Nico grab you a horn

Hit Jericho with a buzzer beater to end a quarter

Watch brick and mortar fall like dripping water, uh!

I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him till I’m gone

(Good God)

 

I’m gon’ praise Him, praise Him till I’m gone

When the praises go up, the blessings come down

(The blessings come down)

When the praises go up, the blessings come down

The blessings come down

When the praises go up, the blessings come down

(Are you ready for your blessings?)

When the praises go up, the blessings come down

(Are you ready for your miracle, are you ready?)

 

It seems like blessings keep falling in my lap

Why this song?

This gospel-inspired freedom song (also featuring Jamila Woods!) reminds me that music is a gift, while also calling us to action that goes beyond social media and relying solely on faith and social media. Because after all, “ain’t no twitter in heaven.” - Rachael
