With DMX’s fate currently uncertain, many have turned to prayer, following the example so often set by the man himself. Though frequently plagued by the alluring call of darkness within, X never failed to keep his head high, turning to God and finding solace in religion. Such themes have been present in his music since It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot first released in 1998, and the honest manner with which he explored his inner duality made him an artist unlike any other.

When he released The Great Depression in 2001, it felt like the conclusion of a journey; not the end of the novel, but perhaps an act. Lessons had no doubt been learned in the years that followed his big debut. For a time, X was among the rap game’s biggest superstars, a lifestyle that brought no shortage of fame and spotlight; as revealed in the telling Ruff Ryders Chronicles documentary that aired on BET last year, he never wanted any of that. The toll was strong, and when he released his fourth studio album in October of 2001, it felt as if a lifetime had passed.

Lyrics

[DMX]
You got a minute for Yo’ son, Father? I need to talk
I’m so tired of tryin’ to run, Father, let’s take a walk
I’m so sorry for what I done, Father, it ain’t my fault
But the devil’s been on my back lately, he’s like a hawk
You never give us more than we can handle, but it’s gettin’ hard
And I’m a strong individual, but I need You, God
Lot of things that I used to, I don’t wanna
Run the streets like I used to, I know I’m gonna
Speak the word for You one day
Up in there like, “Hallelujah!” on Sunday
I thank You Lord for the blessings that You gave me
And for my life, with the blessings You have saved me
And for my wife, You have carried me enough times – and that’s the truth
Married me to rough times, throughout my Youth
And through it all I saw that You was still with me
I was that one lost sheep and You was comin’ to get me

[Hook]
Lord You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord You got me like… Your love got me like…

[DMX]
I look at life a little different now, since You hugged me
And I always loved my peoples, but now they love me
Thank You for the love, Lord, we praise Ya
Jacob’s descendants, from Africa to Asia
Pleadin’ the blood of Christ over our life
Wrong or right, just help us make it through the night
And we’ll shout Yo’ name in times of need
And times of joy, and, when we bleed
And, when we are overcome with greed
You ain’t gon’ have to tell me twice, I’mma take heed
And because of what You’ve given me, I know You’ll deliver me
And I won’t drown no matter how deep the river be
You are the strength I, never knew I had
Kept the heart good when they told me it was bad
All praises due to Ya
That’s why I had to dedicate somethin’ new to Ya, thank You Father

[Hook]
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…

[DMX]
Uhh… I never knew a love like, this before
Messin with the thug life I, missed it all
You opened the doors and, let me in
I’m down for the cause so, let’s begin
Prayers that You give to me I give to them
Same way You live in me I live in them
Life is a blessing now
You got me smilin’ from inside of my heart, when inside it was dark
And it doesn’t rain anymore
Only sunshine, no pain anymore, I really love my
You washed away the tears with the fears
I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life, the whole thirty years
You know that… one day I’ll speak the word
You know that… when I do I will be heard
You know that… You gave me a permanent smile
And You know this, Father, because I’m Yo’ child, what?

[Hook]
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…

[Outro]
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
Lord, You got me like… Your love got me like…
