LECRAE - Take Me As I Am

rate me

[Talking]

Christ through faith

I talked to aman the other day

And he said;

"Man I really wanna come to Christ

But I gotta clean my life up first, get my sins together"

I told em, I used to think that way too

I thought I had to change myself before I could come to Christ

But Christ changed me

Let me tell you my story, it starts like this

[Verse One]

It's 5:46 in the mornin', tossin' and turnin'my

Chest burnin', sermons in my head keep reocurrin'im

Havin' visions in my head of a kid

Cryin' at the feet of the Father, for all the wrong things that he did

Now I'm sweatin' in my sheets can't sleep

My mind keeps tellin' me I'm six feet deep

Don't remind me, even though I'm still alive I can't tell

The way I'm living my life I feel I'm going to hell

God they telling me I should accept you

That you had to leave the world, cause the world left you

Reason I can't change, like a mystery to me

So I make believe there really is a heaven for a G

Even though they say you loved the world so much, you shed ya blood

God I feel I'm too messed up for love

They tell me come as I am but I smell like smoke

My whole lifes full of sin cause it's all I know

The bible told me that you died for my sins

If I believe in Christ, it'll save me from the end

But I'm scared to ask you, to save me my heart

So evil, I got thoughts, that's full of hatred hurtin' people

I thought at first I had to clean up my life

Now I'm hearin' I just need to cling to the light

I'm ready to do it, but Lord I pray you understand

My life is a mess, will you take me as I am

[Chorus]

Will you take me as I am

I know the way I'm living is wrong

But I can't change on my own, trying to make it alone

I wonder, how could you love me when my life so ugly

But you came down and died for me

Will you take me as I am

I know the way I'm living is wrong

But I can't change on my own, trying to make it alone

I wonder, how could you love me when my life so ugly

But you came down and died for me

Will you take me as I am

[Verse Two]

I'm sick and tired of trying to me the man, my daddy never taught me to be

I'm grown up now, life ain't what I thought it would be

I made many mistakes in my past I can't fix

Now I'm staring at this crusifix tatted on my wrist

Is it true what they telling me, am I just crazy

Did ya bleed on the cross, for my sins to save me

But why would ya die for me

My whole life I've been working for Satan, while He fed lies to me

And now I'm hearing too much, trying to get a true touch

Of a love that can change me, I'm all screwed up

Figure Hell is what I deserve

But your word says we all fall short so I guess we all outta burn

Teach me I wanna learn

How you could save a wretch like me, before death says it's my turn

I think I finally understand

No matter my past, you'll still take me as I am

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]

My father had a few last words to give

I be telling people the reason to live

The reason to die, united with the King in the sky

This life is passing us by, I got no reason to lie

You'll never give the world enough, they'll hunger for more

They figure there ways are nuthin to the wonderous lord

More security than the man that left you

More love than the moms who kept you

He'll always accept you

Be everything your supposed to

Let Christ rule ya heart, mind, body and soul cause He chose you

And if the world don't know you

It don't matter you're Gods child and he'll never disown you

Ya purpose on earth is far from worthless

That's why ya glorified like ya life's been purchased

And it don't matter if the world don't seen us

We still mean the world to Jesus

[Chorus]

[Talking]

Yeah, we're saved by grace through faith

It's not works

Ain't nuthin you can do, ain't nuthin I can do

That could get us this grace salavation that we got man

It's only Christ

So if you feel like you gotta clean yourself up

Before you can come to Him

Forget it

Just come to Him

He'll take you as you are, and he'll change YOU

From the inside, out
