Strong God
by Kirk Franklin

Album: Long Live Love


Verse 1
Mayday, mayday (Yeah)
The Earth is shaking (Yeah)
Who gon' save the babies (Yeah)
From another Bloody Sunday?
I'm singing mayday, mayday (Yeah)
They love me or they hate me (Yeah)
For my skin color (Yeah)
But you say I am your brother, yeah

Pre-Chorus
The government keep lying to me
Telling me that they come to set the people free
Cut the power phones when you catch us on our knees
Heaven please, we're in a state of emergency
See we need a strong god, yeah
We need the real god, yeah
The god with the resurrection power from the grave
To take away the hate, to heal the human race, yeah

Chorus
We need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a
We need a strong god
See we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a
Yuh, yuh, yuh

Verse 2
Say mayday, mayday
They say the climate changin'
The poor people in the cold
But you keep preachin' to they soul
But we don't leave 'til everybody's free
And we won't sleep 'til everybody eats (Yeah, yeah)
Until lives matter (Yeah)
More than ties matter

Pre-Chorus
The government keep lying to me
Telling me that they come to set the people free
Cut the power phones when you catch us on our knees
Heaven please, we're in a state of emergency
See we need a strong god, real strong, yeah
We need the real god, yeah, yeah
The god with the resurrection power from the grave
To take away the hate, to heal the human race

Chorus
See we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a
We need a strong god
See we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a
(Let's go)
Yuh, yuh, yuh

Bridge
We want justice, we want change (Want change)
You want peace and no more pain (More pain, yeah)
To be equal, to be free (Yes)
Martin's dream is what I need, yeah
We want justice, we want change (Yuh)
You want peace and no more pain (No more pain)
To be equal, to be free (We wanna be free)
Martin's dream is what I need (Yeah)
Just don't preach the gospel
Be the gospel

Verse 3
My country 'tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
When will we finally see
We need a strong god? Yeah

Pre-Chorus
The government keep lying to me
Telling me that they come to set the people free
Cut the power phones when you catch us on our knees (On our knees)
Heaven please, we're in a state of emergency
See we need a strong god, yeah
We need the real god
The god with the resurrection power from the grave (Yes)
To take away the hate (Yes), to heal the human race (Come on)

Chorus
We need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a
We need a strong god
See we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a, we need a
(Let's go)

Outro
Mayday, mayday (Yeah, yeah)
Said mayday, mayday (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Mayday, mayday
