Story

This is the second rap I wrote in 1985 after the books of the bible. It was so important to write a song that would challenge the listner to be a witness for the Lord and then give them the tools/scripture to lead a lost soul to Jesus. The words (TA-TA-TA-TA-) imply that many Christians have difficulty TA- TA-TA-TA- Testifying. So be bold, and share your testimony.

Lyrics

TESTIFY ( 3:36 )

(Chorus)

CAN YOU TESTIFY, CAN YOU TESTIFY, CAN YOU, CAN YOU, CAN YOU TES-TI-FY!!! CAN YOU TESTIFY, CAN YOU TESTIFY, CAN YOU, TA-TA-TA-TA- TESTIFY!!!

Verse1

YES JESUS DIED. IN YOUR PLACE, 1 MORE THAN 2000 YEARS AGO. AND SINCE THAT DAY, THAT YOU WERE SAVED, YOU HAVEN'T TOLD A LIVING SOUL. NOW I CAN UNDERSTAND, THAT YOU'RE REAL SHY, AND THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD ALIBI; (BUT LISTEN) IF WE’VE GOT FRIENDS, LIVING IN SIN, YOU GOT TO TESTIFY BEFORE THEY DIE! (NOW COME ON) YOU CANT WAIT FOREVER, TO GET IT TOGETHER, BE BOLD-OPEN YOUR MOUTH. YOU’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME; FOR YOUR FRIENDS AND MINE. 2 YOU’VE GOT A SAVIOR TO SHOUT ABOUT! NOW COME ON!

(Chorus)

Verse 2

NOW MAYBE THE PROBLEM IS NOT IN YOUR HEAD, YOU PROBABLY DONT KNOW WHAT THE BIBLE SAID. HERE'S STEP ONE IF YOU CAN READ, AND IF YOU CAN’T, THEN JUST LISTEN TO ME. WE WERE BORN IN SIN. AND NOT BY CHOICE, 3 WHEN ADAM DISOBEYED. HIS FATHER'S VOICE. THE PROBLEM IS SIN, AND IT LIES WITHIN, AND EVERYBODY NEEDS TO BE…BORN AGAIN!!!" 4 SO THE VERY FIRST SCRIPTURE WE NEED TO READ, IS FOUND IN ROMANS 3:23. “FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD" 5 - NOW THAT'S THE FIRSTPART!

(Chorus)

VERSE 2

NOW YOU KNOW THE PROBLEM PART 2’S THE SOLUTION, BUT THE KEY IS YOU'VE GOT TO BELIEVE, FOR IT'S NOT BY WORKS; LEST ANY MAN SHOULD B0AST, BUT BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH; THAT YOU'RE FREED. 6 IN JOHN 3:16 “GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON-- (THAT'S RIGHT!) THAT WHOSOEVER SHALL BELIEVE IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.7 (LISTEN) YOU SEE YOU CANT BE GOOD ENOUGH, RICH ENOUGH, SMART ENOUGH, SWEET ENOUGH TO BE SAVED- (NO!,NO!) JESUS PAID THE PRICE, FOR YOUR LIFE 8 WHEN_HE DIED ON CALVARY! 9 NOW COME ON!

(Chorus)

VERSE3

NOW HERE'S PART 3, IF YOU BELIEVE, THAT JESUS DIED FOR YOU AND ME. 10 ACCEPT BY FAITH WHAT HE'S DONE, AND FOLLOW 10:9 OF THE BOOK OF ROMANS. 11 CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND SAY IT OUT LOUD! HE'S LORD OF MY LIFEI HE'S LORD OF MY LIFE! HE'S LORD OF MV LIFE! HE'S LORD OF MY LIFE! THEN BELIEVE IN-YOUR HEART, GOD RAISED JESUS-FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALL BE SAVED- THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS. “AS NEWBORN BABES DESIRE THE SINCERE MILK, OF HIS WORD 12 THAT YE MAY GROW THEREBY”. LIKE HAMBURGER FOR THE FLESH; HIS WORD IS FOR THE SOUL NOW IT'S YOUR TURN TO TESTIFY. NOW COME ON!!!
