​Testify

This song is by Shai Linne and appears on the album Storiez (2008).

We'll start right now His name is Mike Brown
Born in Detroit but raised in Chi-Town
See, Mike was bright but Mike liked to fight
From night to night, all types Mike would strike down
No PG at 13 Mike was R-rated
By 14 behind bars incarcerated
Released at 15- straight path no-brainer
Parole officer hooked him up with a trainer
Trainer was a Christian father figure and
Taught him discipline- turned him into a junior Olympian
No doubt with the hand skills Mike was nice
But God rocked him and Mike gave his life to Christ
The congregation is waiting for the next reply
Preacher said, "Son stand up and testify"
The very next words that you heard coming through the speaker
"I used to be a thug, but now I'm a believer!"

If you repented of your sins- Testify
If you're trusting in Jesus- Testify
If you believe in His death, burial and resurrection
Testify (say what?) Testify
If you're saved by grace- Testify
If you're seeking God's face- Testify
If you know that you were put here to glorify God
Testify (say what?) Testify

Story number two about a girl named Sue
Raised in the 'burbs not far from Saint Lou
Sue's intelligence was prodigious, she wasn't religious
In fact she thought Christians were all superstitious
She thought their arguments were inconsistent
Didn't find them convincing- full paid scholarship to Princeton
Freshman year she had a roommate named Kristen
In God's providence, Kristen was a Christian
She gave Sue a copy of Mere Christianity
Through reading it, Sue got convicted of her vanity
When she discovered the love of Christian sisters and brothers
For each other is when the Lord grabbed a hold of her
The congregation is waiting for the next reply
Preacher said, "Sis stand up and testify"
Sue said "Jesus made this heathen new
Wanna know my testimony read Ephesians 2!"

If you repented of your sins- Testify
If you're trusting in Jesus- Testify
If you believe in His death, burial and resurrection
Testify (say what?) Testify
If you're saved by grace- Testify
If you're seeking God's face- Testify
If you know that you were put here to glorify God
Testify (say what?) Testify

Story number three, we'll call her Cece
Raised in Maryland, not far from D.C.
She's got a lot to cherish, thanks God she's not embarrassed
About her parents because they had a rock solid marriage
Father straight loved her, gave like no other
Raised with her brother by a stay at home mother
Her life always had the true God in the mix
Because her parents understood Deuteronomy 6
She was raised in the fear of the Lord
Amazing grace appeared and she was saved at the mere age of four
A true clear conviction, the old is replaced
She's a fruit-bearing Christian who's growing in grace
The congregation is waiting for the next reply
Preacher said, "Sis stand up and testify"
Cece said, "I ain't got no horror story
God saved me in my youth I give Him all the glory!"

If you repented of your sins- Testify
If you're trusting in Jesus- Testify
If you believe in His death, burial and resurrection
Testify (say what?) Testify
If you're saved by grace- Testify
If you're seeking God's face- Testify
If you know that you were put here to glorify God
Testify (say what?) Testify
