Versuri Lecrae - I'm a Saint

Used to be where I could only trust me and myself 
And then that heavy metal devil that could send 'em straight to Hell wit it 
Thought it was no helpin' it, my selfishness was celibate 
I sell a bit but I make sure I don't sit up in that cell a bit 
I'd yell a bit but only when hurt came for certain 
Illiterate, ain't know that the Word came 
But then that that Word hit me and unblinded me 
Jesus paid a price for me 
That's how I gained the right to be the son of God I'd like to be 
Changed my heart, gave me a desire for His work man 
Kill me if you want but I'm gone get back up out that dirt man 
Not yet what I'm gonna be, but not what I used to be 
I bless His name forever who would choose me and start usin' me 
Used to love my sinnin' fulla greed and fulla hate 
I might say that I love Jesus, but that talk was really fake 
I'd be lustin' for ya cousin if it wasn't for His grace 
Yeah He took me outta nothin' and He made ya boy a saint 
Yeah they tell me sugar coat it, dumb it down, but I can't 
Might as well deny the Christ, be ashamed, but I ain't 
I'm a saint (x8) 
Til the day I see the grave I'm going hard in the paint 
It's the only hope we got that's why I'll die for the faith 
I'm a saint (x8) 
You got to understand Jesus agreed back in eternity 
To sign a bloody covenant and take a deadly turn for me 
He ain't just agree, He fulfilled it to the death of Him 
He took that bloody cup that's meant for us straight to the neck again 
Swallowed all that bitterness, pain and affliction 
Ain't a soul in Hell with pain comparable to this one 
Brought me to repentance, homie I'm blood-purchased 
And daily I'm conformed to His holiness, so I worship 
Jesus finished the work, He resurrected on high 
That means He beat death and best believe so will I 
See some believe they can fly, but I believe I can die 
Resurrect, leave the earth and live forever with God 
He will march through the sky while the stars sing His praises 
The planets dance around while the universe is amazed and 
Me, I get to gaze upon His beauty for days 
Man if I could be anything baby I'd be a saint 
Now you might think I'm crazy like some kinda urban misfit 
But first I hated church, I'd only pray to give my wish list 
I'd be just like you, doin' my dance up in the club, folk 
I promise I ain't it choose it, I was chosen to be loved on 
Eyes low, blowing dro, that's the life I used to know 
But Jesus chopped me up and slowed me down just like that Houston flow 
A dead man until somebody hit me with the hardest facts 
The Gospel hit my heart, I guess that's what you call a heart attack 
I'm looking at Ephesians 2, like what did Jesus see in you? 
It's nothin', by His grace He chose to love on folk like me and you 
And I don't understand it, homie, I never planned it 
I was chasing money and fast women and man 
Then I met the great I AM, Son of Man, or the Lamb 
Snatched ya boy up outta Hell, and got me workin' for His plans 
Used think I was the man till I met Him 
All that arrogance and pride, I dead 'em and fo'get 'em 
I'm a saint
