He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Came Down

It was dope how you came down
There was hope when you came down
Now I know why you came down
Glad I know why you came down

We met our Savior when you came down
We saw your flavor when you came down
You gave us favor when you came down
Now we goin’ praise ya’ cause you came down

The more I live the more I’m convinced of/ the fact there’s hope in this life in spite of what sin does/ Hard knock life and can’t weed out the sorrow/ Still I believe the sun’ll be out tomorrow/ I’ve got a right to think like this/ and my reason is connected to the season of Christmas/ ‘Cause though it doesn’t seem right one night this/ place of low worth held the birth of One priceless/ Straight up—wait a minute the kid’s sovereign/ Born in a stable he deserved the Ritz Carlton/ That’s just the tip of the ice/ And Christmas is the perfect time for the rhyme to hip you to Christ


Please—y’all let me reflect on the blessin’/ of what God did when He slid the flesh on/ Stepped on earth though His worth was slept on/ His word made the earth and by His word it’s kept goin’/ That’s why the season’s a good ‘nuff reason to please Him/ How I wish every hood would seek Him and see Him/ Grown, enthroned, more than just a rabbi/ I wish you could see Him as Lord just ask the magi/ Who brought incense, gold, and myrrh/ They saw a King—whatcha’ think that the gold was for?/ Servin’ others—madd blood and sweat/ Served and loved us—that’s the kind of gold you get/ when it’s Christ-style lovin’, change up your lifestyle lovin’/ Correct you when your lifestyle’s buggin’/ Christmas lovin’, the tear up your wish-list lovin’/ And switch it to the give gifts lovin’

Christmas is the time that I can get my eat on/ But now there’s divine grub I get to feed on/ It’s soul food every time I get my read on/ Now I no longer have to get my weed on/ He’s strong but he’s on nothin’ he’s reborn/ He keeps goin’ even with the gifts and trees gone/ And he’s hype of the fact that Christ is/ The God who came when others wouldn’t come down like gas prices/ Some swear it’s a myth but they should cherish the gift/ ‘Cause when Jesus was born there was a shift/ from hopelessness to hope that’s just so dope/ I hope you get to make the most of it

Happy Christmas Eve!
