Prayer (Skit)

This song is by DMX and appears on the album It's Dark And Hell Is Hot (1998).

I come to you hungry and tired, you give food and let me sleep
I come to you weak, you give strength and that's deep
You called me a sheep, and lead me to green pastures
Only asking that I keep the focus, in between the chapters

You give me the word, and only ask I interpret
And give me the eyes, that I can recognize the serpent
You know I ain't perfect, but you'd like me to try
Unlike the devil who just wants me to lie, till I die

Lord why is it that, I go through so much pain
All I saw was black, and all I felt was rain
I come to you because it's, you who knows
You showed me that everything is black, because my eyes were closed

You gave me the light, and let me bask in your glory
So it was only right, that when you asked for this story
I put together, to do our dogs some good
Our dogs being, brothers and sisters in the hood

Plenty of times you sent help my way, but I hid
And I remember once you held me close, but I slid
There was something that, I just had to see
That you wanted me to see, so I can be what you wanted me to be

And I think I've seen it, 'cause I don't feel the same
Matter of fact I know I have seen it, I can feel the change
And it's strange, almost got me beating down your door
But I've never known love, like this before

It's a wonderful feeling, to get away from the pain
And up under the ceiling, I get away from the rain
And the strain that I feel when I'm here, is gone
I know real so I wipe away the tears, with a song

And I almost lost faith, when you when you took my man
Monty, Paso, and Jay's brother Dan
And I fear that what I saying, won't be heard until I'm gone
But it's all good, 'cause I really didn't expect to live long

So if it takes for me to suffer, for my brother to see the light
Give me pain till I die, but please lord treat him right
