Slow Down
You Died


I’m gonna obey you for life
(I got a lot to be thankful for)
I’m gonna obey you for life
I got a lot to be

Verse 1:
For it was my mind to go astray from my God.
So bein’ returned I’m gonna seek HIM. 
I’ve got
but a little time to get my mind right,
that’s right.
I’m’a take it serious cause my God is more 
terrible than me.
So I let HIM fight for me.
That's for all of you, yes, all of my enemies.
For at first she walked with me by crooked ways.
And brought fear and dread upon me and torment for to obey her.
For it was my mind to sin and go astray.
Christ, the Black Messiah, said to think not that way.
Prophets teach the definition of sin is to transgress
the laws of God, and I broke all of them. So I digress,
and stress
to all of my people to confess
the err of their fathers and their own mess of sin, 
so that in that day we might win,
if we keep all the commandments to the very end
The end


Verse 2:
He began a good work,
good work in you.
Thoughts of peace,
not of evil,
HE will give to you.
Tell the people 
great things the
LORD has done for you.
HE had mercy.
Mercy had HE,
mercy on you
You, you, ooh.
You, you, ooh, you.
You, you, ooh, ooh.
You, you, ooh, you.


Count ya blessings
one by one. One by one. One.
Count ya blessings
two by two. Two by two. Two.

Hook 2 & Vamp
I’m gonna obey you for life
I’m gonna obey you
I’m gonna obey you

Track 1 - Obey inspiration from scripture:

*Deuteronomy 30:8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.

*Psalms 30:12 - To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

*Romans 1:21 - Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

*2 Corinthians 9:11Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

*Baruch 4:28 For as it was your mind to go astray from God: so, being returned, seek him ten times more.

[17] For at the first she will walk with him by crooked ways, and bring fear and dread upon him, and torment him with her discipline, until she may trust his soul, and try him by her laws.
[18] Then will she return the straight way unto him, and comfort him, and shew him her secrets.
[19] But if he go wrong, she will forsake him, and give him over to his own ruin.
[20] Observe the opportunity, and beware of evil; and be not ashamed when it concerneth thy soul.
[21] For there is a shame that bringeth sin; and there is a shame which is glory and grace.

*Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

*Psalm 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom.

*Nehemiah 1:5 And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:

*Exodus 14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

*Exodus 15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

*1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

*Sir.4:26 Be not ashamed to confess thy sins; and force not the course of the river.

*Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

*Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ

*Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

*Psalms 103:2 - Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

*Psalm 103:1-22
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us
13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.
14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
19 The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
20 Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
21 Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
22 Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the Lord, O my soul.

*Ephesians 2:4-10
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Psalms 47:2 For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

Baruch 4:21-37
[21] Be of good cheer, O my children, cry unto the Lord, and he will deliver you from the power and hand of the enemies.
[22] For my hope is in the Everlasting, that he will save you; and joy is come unto me from the Holy One, because of the mercy which shall soon come unto you from the Everlasting our Saviour.
[23] For I sent you out with mourning and weeping: but God will give you to me again with joy and gladness for ever.
[24] Like as now the neighbours of Sion have seen your captivity: so shall they see shortly your salvation from our God which shall come upon you with great glory, and brightness of the Everlasting.
[25] My children, suffer patiently the wrath that is come upon you from God: for thine enemy hath persecuted thee; but shortly thou shalt see his destruction, and shalt tread upon his neck.
[26] My delicate ones have gone rough ways, and were taken away as a flock caught of the enemies.
[27] Be of good comfort, O my children, and cry unto God: for ye shall be remembered of him that brought these things upon you.
[28] For as it was your mind to go astray from God: so, being returned, seek him ten times more.
[29] For he that hath brought these plagues upon you shall bring you everlasting joy with your salvation.
[30] Take a good heart, O Jerusalem: for he that gave thee that name will comfort thee.
[31] Miserable are they that afflicted thee, and rejoiced at thy fall.
[32] Miserable are the cities which thy children served: miserable is she that received thy sons.
[33] For as she rejoiced at thy ruin, and was glad of thy fall: so shall she be grieved for her own desolation.
[34] For I will take away the rejoicing of her great multitude, and her pride shall be turned into mourning.
[35] For fire shall come upon her from the Everlasting, long to endure; and she shall be inhabited of devils for a great time.
[36] O Jerusalem, look about thee toward the east, and behold the joy that cometh unto thee from God.
[37] Lo, thy sons come, whom thou sentest away, they come gathered together from the east to the west by the word of the Holy One, rejoicing in the glory of God.

Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
