A "Desiring God" Rap (by Curt Allen, a.k.a. "Voice")

Listen to "Desiring God" by Curt Allen (a.k.a. "Voice")—

Yay though I walk through the valley of the death man, I wasn't killing sin it was taking my last breath man. I was more than stressed man wasn't living right and it was like I know what's right but my life would go left man. Death was my best man married to my sin and I was on my way to hell for the wedding reception. I was lost but some horizontal and vertical wood formed a cross, and placed upon it a man who was there and stood for the lost. Life is free but it cost the price of blood and this sacrifice is Christ who chose the right to be judged. Instead of me, over time I went from blind to now I better see, my problems began in Genesis 3 I'm God's enemy. I mean I was and it's all b'cuz the blood drops, so I'm thanking God that he didn't allow some clots. Blood flows and love shows where the buck stops is here, be clear at the cross all pride flops.

Hook
Everything I do and everything I pray,
Is all to worship Christ, so when I obey
I'm Desiring God, Desiring God

V2
You died fully and you would rise fully,
You are alive fully opened my eyes fully.

To see I'm responsible now to worship you, you brought me in from the dark into the light from my past life like a curfew. The pleasure of God, I willfully now pursue, no longer afraid being a chicken that's for Purdue. My spirit heard you, the joy I turn to, is being most satisfied knowing in that you're glorified. Them other stories lie, the foundation of my happiness is found in exactly this you were crucified. And now I worship in Spirit and truth, and pursue being glad and having others being glad in you. And making much of you, my joy does that, being most satisfied in you glorifies you plug that. Lord help us love that, nothing is above that, Christian Hedonism, We don't live just to believe in Him. We long to be with him, til then be satisfied knowing that when it's in him he is mostly glorified.

To see the beauty of the gospel displayed, Jesus Christ He was raised so be amazed he went under for 3 days. Then he rose and ascended sinners are now amended that believe in Christ, that's right, judgment’s suspended. That for his own glory, now he brings us into his own story, Christ would atone leaving His throne on His own for me. The Bloodshed was his alone and it was not gory, but the most beautiful ending to end my glory. And live for His United in Christ, finding my joy in the Dangerous Duty of Delight. What Jesus Demands From the World's more than allegiance cuz God is the Gospel it's impossible not to see this. So Let the Nations Be Glad, Life as a Vapor, will end then we'll be Seeing and Savoring Christ the Savior. But for now the challenge is life is hard so I'm Battling Unbelief When I Don't Desire God.
