lyrics

## 1. Hip Hop Homily (95 bpm)

Testing, testing, one two, mic check
Now you might not know Micah yet
I’m sergeant major, he’s my cadet
But this sergeant’s majorly in Micah’s debt
Cuz these beats are his, give him due respect
He made these beats for my cassette
So before my show, this is Micah’s set!
Okay, here we go! On your mark, get set!

Press pause —I want these words to mark ya
More permanently than a permanent marker
I’ve been given great power, I’m Peter Parker
The power of these words could even start a
revolution, reformation, call it what you will--
I’m Morpheus , inviting you to swallow the red pill.
This is gospel truth, not just lyrical skill
My word’s my bond, James Bond , licence to kill

A hip hop homily//is an anomaly.
God give me words to speak//Find me the truth I seek.
Subject of suffering--//there is no tougher thing.
Spirit of prophecy,//reveal the Cross to me.

On your marks, set, go! If you’re ready or not!
Knock, knock – who’s there? – Hey, what’s up, Doc?
Great Scott, Marty ! It’s Peter Prescott!
Yeah I’m Peter Prescott, I’m here to praise God!
I’m Back From The Future where I’m king of hip hop!
Can you hear the clocks ticking, tock, tick, tick tock.
There’s a gathering storm —I’m the first raindrop!
And the race begins! Here we go, chip chop!

Clip, clop, clip, clop, riding on my horse
I’m a circuit rider , the world’s my race-course
Holy Ghost in my sails, He’s my driving force
are you ready for this? It’s my tour de force!
Yeah, I’m on my bike, this my Tour de France
With rhymes so dope, you could call me Lance .
Poetry, Turntables, Spray-paint, Breakdance
With some Bible Knowledge , we got all the elements of--

A hip hop homily//is an anomaly.
God give me words to speak//Find me the truth I seek.
Subject of suffering--//there is no tougher thing.
Spirit of prophecy,//reveal the Cross to me.

Aristotle, are you ready? For poetic catharsis!
Though I’m not just a poet, I’m a lyrical artist
I’m battle rapping against the forces of darkness
I’m doing whatever I can to impart this
whole-hearted passion for Christ into your heart, this
isn't easy! It might even be the hardest
thing there is to do, well I’m doing it regardless.
You might kill me, but I’m Stephen, and look at Saul of Tarsus--

Hahaha! Let’s have some fun!
We’ll be wrestling with the vexing big question:
of how can a good God be consistent
with evil’s undeniable existence!
Well, find yourself a Bible, we need assistance
from Scripture. In partic’lar, the classic instance
of someone suffering despite his innocence.
Turn to Job chapter one, let’s see what’s written…
