I don't know what you came to do

I don't know what you came to do But I came to praise the Lord To proclaim His anointing spirit And with Him to get on board Jesus came to preach the Gospel To spread the holy word of God To let the people know that Oppressive behavior comes not from the heart Today many people of color are suffering Financially and legally as well We're the most disadvantaged, the most killed And the most incarcerated in jail Our minds have been colonized Our history diminished to naught They call us savage and undisciplined And say we can't be taught Red lined, stopped & frisked Under counted in the census of the nation No federal dollars to our communities As we're constantly under dissipation I don't know what you came to do But like Jesus i came to speak power and truth For those issues that plagued his time are now plaguing mine too As there's nothing new under the sun But we need to believe That if we tap into our Holy Ghost power There's nothing we can't achieve To be the change in the world that we want to see We must make it come about By embracing the resurrection power of Christ And with true faith to work it out I don't know what you came to do But I came to take a stand For I've been delivered and empowered By the Sacred Blood of the Son of Man I don't know what you came to do But I came to battle and fight As I'll no longer sit in complacency But challenge the status quo out right To put the devil on notice And give hope to the oppressed To cause a shift in power And get our circumstances addressed I was created to be free And not a prisoner of any man For I'm a child of the Heavenly King And For me He has a plan As homelessness isn't my destiny Nor is poverty my goal And like Jesus I came to change the world And take from the oppressors control I don't know what you came to do But I came spread the Gospel of Christ To let my enemies know that I will now Lead an abundant live Yes the battle may be long and protracted But I'm in for the long haul As I don't know what you came to do But I came to tear down strongholds
