[Regina Bell harmonizing while DMX speaks]
	What good is it..
	for a man to, gain the world..
	yet lose his own soul, in the process?
[Bell]	God loves you, yes he does
	Said you're alright with him
[DMX]	I wonder..

Chorus: Regina Bell (repeat 2X)

I know you never seen him but don't fight with him
You're gonna make it through the night to the light with him
Uhh, you're alright with him
I said you're alright with him

I'm callin out to you Lord, because I need your help
See once again I'm havin difficulty savin myself
behavin myself, you told me what to do, and I do it
But every and now and then, gets a little harder to go through it
Losin friends, day by day
I'm in so much pain when I'm here Lord, please take me away
	I put you here to do a job, and your work ain't done
	To live is to suffer, but you're still my son
	And there will be a time when you shine as bright as the stars
	But there won't be a, his or hers, just ours
	Then you'll see what I've been tryin to show you, all these years
	Do the right thing; cause after the tears, come the cheers
I will, my Lord, with my heart, and my soul
That's gonna be how I roll, from now until I'm old
Lead and I'll follow, you take away the sorrow
I'ma sleep on what you said and holla back tomorrow


I want you to know Lord, that for what you've given me I'm thankful
Sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, I'm grateful
You gave us power in our words, so I think before I speak
And that way when I speak, they know I'm here to teach
Can't tell em nothin wrong, cause I love em too much
I reach a lot of people, and Lord, I'm lovin the touch
But deep inside, I've got somethin that's workin against
everything I know is right, what I know makes sense
	That's when you must fight harder, than you've ever fought before
	cause what you've got goin on inside you is a war
	between good and evil, be careful of those who wanna be you
	They smile, but are not really happy when they see you
	Be careful of the ones that always wanna get you high
	Cause when the time comes, that one'll let you die
	Listen to me!  I'm here, but I can only help you
	if you want me to help, what do you want for yourself?


My Lord, my saviour, don't judge my behaviour
but instead, take what's in my heart and put it in my head
See I guess I really never knew, how proud I made you
My life is yours, my soul I gave you
I don't know if I'll do good enough (he's by your side)
And we both know the hood is rough (right by your side)
Sometimes I don't know what to do (X, dry your eyes)
But I know what I gotta do (it'll be alright)
You keep givin me the word, and I'll put it to song
Talk to me, I'll talk to them, and we can't go wrong
This is the start of somethin strong, and this is just the start of it
Praises to you my Lord, for lettin me be a part of it
I was that kid that, been there, did that
Became ashamed so I hid that
But, ain't no longer with that
Use me as an example - if I can do, then they can too
With the Lord behind us, there ain't nothin that we can't do


[Regina Bell]
He's by your side
Right by your side
X, dry your eyes
cause it'll be alright
Yeah, he's by your side
Right by your side
X, dry your eyes
Cause, it'ssssssssss gonna be alright
Yeah yeah, yes it isssssssssss
