10 Best Christian Rap Lyrics
The top ten Christian rap lyrics are unique because they integrate passages of scripture from the Holy Bible and musically present it to the youth, using a blend of the genre of rap and contemporary vernacular.
- Tedashii's "Make War from Identity Crisis" (featuring Flame). In this song Tedashii raps, "I'm filled with the Spirit so tell them dog this is pay back/ as you begin to copy the carbon copies of Christ/ and conform to His written image you should be shinning a light/ if you not, why is that?" He summarizes Romans 8:29 which delves into a Christian believer adopting all the traits of Jesus Christ.
- Trip Lee's "Intimacy". As The Holy Bible portrays the church to a wife and Christ as the Husband, the song Intimacy underlines the longing for a closeness which goes beyond the mere physical. "I count it all loss, Lord, that I might know ya/ There's a longing for Your love/ The truth is I'm in love with You and hope that You see I/ Would like to see You and I in U-N-I-T-Y..." Trip Lee incorporates Philippians 3:7,8.
- Lecrae's "Send me". This song urges the Great Commission message of Matthew 28:19 in which Christ commands followers to make disciples. "I know y'all read the great commission/ Let me just remind y'all/ make disciples of the nations/ Teach'm to obey the Lord/ Have to lead someone to Christ before I face the Lord."
- Sho Baraka's "Higher Love". Alluding to Jesus Christ, Baraka says, "He got a saving Word, its like a computer/ now I excel cuz my idea of love came in the form of a bottle .../ but now I walk in the spirit." He compares Microsoft Word and Excel to his Christian walk and testifies of his old life and the new spiritual one.
- KJ-52's "God". He sings, "You are the first and the last/ Strength that I have, if my world was to crash / You are the same from today to the past / Plain that your love don't change and I'm glad."
- Da Truth's "You Made". Da Truth's song exalts the world's Creator and magnifying His marvellous works. "And the world that You made/ Fell, apart, all the people cried out/ O'Lord, how long/ And You sent the Redeemer/ To come, along, and restore, what's lost."
- Group 1 Crew's "Forgive me". "Forgive Me" is a song which reveals a message of Psalms 23, godly confidence and the Commission: "Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death/ I'm not scared 'cause You're holding my breath/ I only fear that I don't have enough time left/ To tell the world that there's no time left."
- GRITS' "Believe." Using scripture and truthful metaphor, they compose positive lyrics such as: "There's a way that seems right/ In the heart of a man/ And many angels of light/ In disguise destroying man/ So most chose to refuse/ The absolute truth/ Replace it with lies.
- Believin' Stephen's "Persevere". Believin' Stephen raps about the work of sanctification and faith. He spews out positive lyrics such as: "Persevere!!! We can’t treat sin casually/ Persevere!!! He’ll change us gradually/ Persevere!!! No one’s snatchin' His sheep/ Persevere!!! Let’s battle unbelief."
- Timothy Brindle's "The Excellency of Christ". "You're the Lion, yet the Lamb/ You're divine yet you're a man/ You're Messiah and I AM / You're triumphant in your plan/ Resurrected in all power and might/ Exalted in all glory and honor—the Father showered the Christ."
