shai linne - Gospel Music (Romans)

I want to memorize this!

This song is performed by Shai Linne and appears on the album 116 Clique:13 Letters (2007).


I'm not ashamed of the gospel, y'all
It's the power of Christ that can save us all
In the gospel, the righteousness of God is revealed
And who lives by faith? The righteous will!

(Verse 1)
Awake from your slumber, rise! A letter from the wise
The book of Romans- the Christian faith summarized
By Paul, a bondservant of Christ Jesus
Called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel (1:1)
Chapter 1:16-17 is the thesis
Because our sins are colossal, hearts are harder than fossils (1:21, 29-31, 2:5)
That's everybody's plight; cant' solve it- goodnight!
How do sinners get right in a Holy God's sight?
Amazing is the answer, see- Romans states it candidly
The first three chapters- God's case against humanity
Whether it's idolatry (1:23) or religious hypocrisy (2:1, 23)
No one can possibly see the charges and say "It's not for me"
Everybody's guilty, everybody's filthy (3:9-19)
Before God on judgment day is where everybody will be (2:5, 16)
For those who believe in Jesus who suffered and died
"It feels so good to be justified" (3:21-26)


(Verse 2)

At the cross the wrath of God was spent on Jesus
On behalf of all who repent and believe this (3:25)
We receive His perfect righteousness (4:5)
In exchange, believers cursed lives are His (4:25)
Behold the blessedness for earth's cold residents
Chapter 4- Paul defends it from the Old Testament (4:1)
Up to this point, we saw the need for justification (3:19-20)
In chapter 5 and following, we see it's implications (5:1)
In service and purity, we yearn for maturity
Empowered by Christ, who gives eternal security (5:9-11)
Slowly but surely, He removes every vice
Raised to newness of life through our union with Christ (6:4, 14, 17)
But chapter 7 finds us struggling with sin (7:15, 21)
It's buggin' us within but He loves us to the end (7:24-25)
Even with complications through sin's occupation
For God's consecrated there's no condemnation (8:1)
The Holy Spirit inside, He comforts like no other
He convinces us we're God's children even when we suffer (8:16-17)
Nothing in creation could ever separate us
From the love of God in Christ Jesus who saved us (8:39)
In chapter 9 we see God is sovereign in His mercy (9:15)
His dealings with Israel shows He's working out His purposes (9:11)
By the end of 11 it's Jew and Gentile together
United in Christ to His glory forever!


So in view of God's mercies
We remove our worldly uniforms and throw on crucified jerseys
Holy and acceptable, ruled by the divine
Being transformed by renewal of the mind (12:1-2)
Yeshua's design- obedience to the Scriptures
With love as the key ingredient in the mixture (12:9-10. 13:8-10)
The godly man's picture under the new covenant
Mindful of God, we submit to the goverment (13:1)
Not passing judgment on weaker brothers
Instead we spread love to them to keep them from stumbling (14:13-15)
When we do this, God will truly then smile
As Christ is glorified through jew and gentile (15:5-6)
And the God of peace at His judgment seat
Will soon crush Satan under our feet! (16:20)
Now this is just an overview- go and read Romans through
And I pray the God of Romans will grab a hold of you!
