I’m leavin’ the ghetto, been plannin’ for a while

I’m packin’ up my dreams, right now

Good morning to the future, good night to the past

It’s gonna be a good day

Looking for the good life

The big town and the green lights

On a wing and a prayer and a one way flight

Are you ready, are you ready

You talk about it everyday,

And yeah you’ve got a lot to say, but

Are you ready, are you ready

Gonna take a lot of preparation

To reach your destination, so

Then on to the next place, in your mind

But why you wanna go so far,

When it won’t change who your are

On (?) or the ghetto

Looking for the good life

The big town and green lights

On a wing and a prayer and a one way flight

Mary Mary Thank You

Tragedies are commonplace

All kinds of diseases, people are slipping away

Economies down, people don’t get enough pay

But as for me all I can say

Is thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me

Folks without homes are in the streets

And the drug habit some say

They just can’t beat

Muggers and robbers

No place seems to be safe

But you’ve been my protection

Every step of the way

And I wanna say

Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me?

[Chorus in the background repeats:]

Thank you

It could’ve been me outdoors

With no food and no clothes

All left alone without a friend

Or just another number with a tragic end

But you didn’t see fit

To let none of these things be

And every day by your power

That you keep on, that you keep on keeping me

I wanna say

Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me

It could’ve been me outdoors

With no food and no clothes

All left alone without a friend

Or just another number with a tragic end

But you didn’t see fit

To let none of these things be

Every day by your power

That you keep on, that you keep on keeping me

I wanna say

Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me

Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me

I want to say

Thank you Lord for all you’ve done

I wanna thank you for your love

Thank you for your power

Thank you for protection

Every hour

Thank you Lord

I wanna thank you for your love

Mary Mary Something Bigger

My block in here!

[Chorus: 2x]

Gotta do it, gotta do it big

Big, ba-ba-bi-big

Gotta do it, gotta do it, gotta do it big

Big, ba-ba-bi-big

La, la, la, la, la, la, laaaaah, aaaah

[Verse 1:]

Everybody doin’ that, can’t do it again

Why you mad at me cause I wanna do it big

Don’t think I’m unplugged and I’m disconnected

Cause I didn’t do what ya’ll expected

I ain’t never thought small, cause my brain’s colossal

When you gon’ find out, you can do it if you want to

Pull up the New Test, click John 14

I can do great things cause of God in me

If God’s in me, why I gotta think small

Now you know that don’t make no sense at all

I’m in the image of the greatest, why I gotta defend

Why I wanna do it, wanna do it, wanna do it big

[Chorus]

La, la, la, la, la, la, laaaaah, aaaah

[Verse 2:]

Can’t keep it in a box cause it just don’t fit

My God, he’s bigger than just music

I can take it to the church where my people go

I can take it to the people that just don’t know

I can take it to the people that feel real low

To the poor, to the rich, to the CEO

(Yeah) He knows who you are

Who you’re not, what you got, when it’s all gon’ stop

(Yeah) He can make you larger

Change your life and take you farther

It ain’t not limit cause this world is his

So you got to do it, got to do it, got to do it big

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]

Nobody plans to be a loser

Nobody tries for second place

Nothing’s wrong with second place, but

Why stop at the ceiling when God showed me the sky

Why get on the airplane if I’m too scared to fly

Why am I goin’ to the battle if I don’t wanna fight

I’m goin’ for the gold

Got to be incredible, oh oh

[Repeat 4x]

Got to do it, got to do it big, big

I got to, I got to, got to do it big

La, la, la, la, la, la, laaaaah, aaaah

[Chorus]

Gotta do, gotta do, gotta do

Gotta do, gotta do

Gotta do it, gotta do it big

Big, ba-ba-bi-big-ba-big

I got to, I got to, got to do it big

Mary Mary One Minute

I Know it now that I was such a fool

To turn my back on you

When you had given me everything

I let you down I know that’s true

Now I come to realize that

There are no happy days because

You’re not here, I need to know if

There’s a chance for me again

All I need is one minute of your time

5 seconds of it may change your mind

10 seconds to make you see

15 to say Lord I’m sorry

For all the things I’ve done

It’ll take 20 more to say that you’re the one

9 to think it through

I’ll take the one to say I love you

Late a night when I was all alone

You held me in you arms

I strayed away only to find

There was no place to hide

Lord please hear me when I say

I’ll give my life you to whatever I’ve got to do

Show me Lord and I will live for you

All I need is one minute of your time

5 seconds of it may change your mind

10 seconds to make you see

15 to say Lord I’m sorry

For all the things I’ve done

It’ll take 20 more to say that you’re the one

9 to think it through

I’ll take the one to say I love you

I’m not willing to, to give up on you

Knowing that you’ve always stood right by me

Until you forgive me my world won’t turn

So if you hear me Lord, I’m saying that I’m

sorry

Said I’m sayng that I’m sorry

All I need is one minute of your time

5 seconds of it may change your mind

10 seconds to make you see

15 to say Lord I’m sorry

For all the things I’ve done

It’ll take 20 more to say that you’re the one

9 to think it through

I’ll take the one to say I love you

Mary Mary It Will All Be Worth It

[Chorus]

It will all be worth it

It will all be worth it

For those who do believe that one day

He will crack the sky

I know you can’t see it now

But one day I know you will

[Verse 1]

We see through a glass, but hardly

A glimpse of future glory, but darkly

Oh, what a day

Imagining what awaits

Amidst all of the criticism

Skeptic views and cynicism

Yet we pray

Just to see Your face

And it will

[Chorus]

It will all be worth it

It will all be worth it

For those who do believe that one day

He will crack the sky

I know you can’t see it now

But one day I know you will

[Verse 2]

With every passing of a loved one

The many who’ve gone on before use

Makes your heart ache

Wondering why the delay

But with every heartbeat your faith grows stronger

And the Lord whispers not much longer

Your sould is stirred

And comforted with these words

That it will

[Chorus]

It will all be worth it

It will all be worth it

For those who do believe that one day

He will crack the sky

I know you can’t see it now

[Outro]

You can’t see it now, I know [repeat]

But one day I know you will

Mary Mary Trouble Ain’t

Can’t promise you no pain no tears

Can’t say you’ll never be lonely again

My friend

But you see there’s a remedy

There’s someone who’s got

Everything you need

And if you hear what I’m saying

I’m sure you’ll agree that?-

[Chorus:]

Trouble ain’t gon’ be here everyday

Even though sometimes it seems like it won’t go away

After you’ve done all that you know how

Just to keep from breaking down

Just believe it’s gonna get much better

After awhile

Sometimes I sit back and I think about

Where I’ve been and where I am

Right now

See I wasn’t quite sure you could

Hear me calling

But you were there to catch me

When I was falling

So I know

[Chorus]

Oh sometimes we may just want to cry

Then you tell me it’s gonna be alright

You can’t go through life

Living problem free

But you got to keep the faith

And you got to believe

So the next time you’re feeling

A little frustration

And you going through

A bad situation

Remind yourself that it won’t last for long

‘Cause soon it will be over and you’ll be moving

Cause

[Chorus]

Mary Mary Thankful

Lord i’m thankful for my blessings

Times when danger was around me

My life lord you saved

Where would I be without your love

Where would I be without your grace

You didn’t have to do it but I’m glad you did

Can’t pretend that what I got

I got it on my own

Whenever I need help

Times when danger was around me

My life lord you saved

Where would I be without your love

Where would I be without your grace

You didn’t have to do it but I’m glad you did

And you wake up alright

Remember that he kept you safe

And warm all through the night

Lift your hands and lift them high

And this is what you say

Lord you didn’t have to give me

One more day

Lord i’m thankful for my blessings

everything that you gave

Times when danger was around me

My life lord you saved

Where would I be without your love

Where would I be without your grace

You didn’t have to do it but I’m glad you did
