#JesusIsMyCandidate: the rap

I made this piece while we were making Jesus trend around the world last night. Please share it with your friends if you like it. Luke 19:40. Isaiah 6:2. Isaiah 40:3. Joel 2:28.

Song: jesus is my candidate

Babylon is crumbling,
Social nets are tumbling,
Everyone is stumbling
Past Italian faces that misrepresent a Jewish king
Preachers writing books, getting bling
Who’s in the streets with Dr. King?
Did you only hear the one speech?
He had a lot else to teach
About the way we can each
Be a servant to the least of these
And I’m not trying to hate
Always eaten on a silver plate
Never lived the way that many people live
So I hope you can forgive me
‘Cause I’m willing to learn
Know that nothing I have is a grace that I’ve earned
And that pride is the way that people burn.

Now the fear of the Lord
Is the basis for love
And I’m not saying fear
Of some lightning from above
Because fear means awe
At the beauty of God’s law
Which is way more than rules
Setting boundaries for the fools;
But today our laws have been
Shaped by Charles Darwin
‘Cause we crush the poor
For the sake of the system.
If the world belongs to God,
What does “Thou shalt not steal” mean?
Is it Jean Valjean or George Soros & 5 Keatings?
But now not so fast
Cause we can’t scurry past
The fact that Jesus loved
That woman and her perfume flask
And Zacchaeus and Matthew
Who were both day traders
But they’re sons of David
And they loved their savior
So when the PC patrol heard about
Jesus’ vice: “So you eat with Wall Street?”
Jesus said, “Love mercy not sacrifice.”
