J Carter’s rhymes flow fast and fluidly with verse after verse of praise to the one true God, creator of heaven and earth, on his song “The G.O.D.”
“You’ve been there for me from the beginning
Forgiving me even when I was sinning
You give me the strength to live
Give me the strength to give
Give me the strength to try to lead my wife and my kids.”
The message of this song is so important that when each chorus rolls around, even clever rhymes end up taking a temporary backseat at least long enough for a quatrain of important statements of straightforward truth.
“Life has been good because of You – True!
Life cannot go on without You – True!
Life would be meaningless without You – True!
God has been good to me – Me too!”
It is refreshing to hear moments of honesty and even of humility coming from a modern rap artist.
“I’m not worthy of your love but still you put it on me.
I’m not worthy of praying to You but You still don’t ignore me.”
“You know me inside out without a doubt.
You’ve helped me in so many ways that I’ve lost count.”
“There’s no way I could ever pay you back
All I’ve got is my soul and You got that.”
The Word of God is held in high esteem.
“You sent me your instructional book
on how to live right how to put up a fight
and how to let my light shine bright…”
And then he wraps things up with an invitation of sorts.
“Has He been good to you too?
If He has put your hands up high!”
At this point, I love to envision every hand in the house raised high!!!
