Allow me to introduce this book it's called/ Philemon it's oh so personal (1:1)/ The book bares the name of the person whom the words are to (1:1)/ Paul's urging dude praying for this servant who (1:4)/ Refreshed the saints day by day in the church its true (1:5)/ He was encouraged too/ By this dudes passion/ Fellowship growing in faith it was fantastic (1:6)/ But he had this slave Onesimus this man happened/ To steal some things ran away yeah he fled faster (1:15/1:18)/ Philemon didn't know/ He ended up in Rome/ Where God redeemed his soul/ Through Paul's teaching yo' (1:10)/ The gospel of Christ made some things change/ Cause now he and Philemon became the same slaves/ Slaves to Christ/ Onesimus stayed beside/ Paul in Prison He had changed his life (1:11/1:13)/ So he served Paul it hurt Paul to have to let him leave (1:11)/ With this letter in his hand hoping he'd be received (1:12)
Take em' back/ It don't matter what he did/ Christ Forgives, homie that's what it is/ I know you've been wronged / He been gone for a minute/ But now God got up in em'/ So I call for forgiveness
So Paul the Apostle/ Saw that he ought to/ Resolve what was harming the body he got to/ So he comes on strong but then also/ As a fellow servant of God as he talks to (1:8-9)/ Philemon Pleading for Onesimus/ Please don't grieve him I need him but he is still yours so just listen his (1:13-14)/ Presence is dear to me but he's dearer to you (1:16)/ And it's so clear to see, since hearing the truth/ He's been adopted and cleaned (1:10) and often it seems/ That God in his sovereignty saw that these things/ Like him thieving and leaving you for a season/ Through that God redeemed him and cleaned him so he can (1:15)/ Be yours forever as a brother in Christ (1:16)/ So receive this letter, don't cut him off twice (1:17)/ And whatever he owes you charge it to me/ Even though you owe me I want you to please (1:18-19)
Paul wrote he was sure and secure in the fact/ That Philemon would surely enjoy taking back (1:21)/ This man who had wronged him before in his past/ But now they were one in the Lord it's a wrap (1:16)/ Just like Onesimus/ We need forgiveness when/ We grieve our Lord who saved us and filled us with/ His spirit to seal us in/ Heal us from the illest sin/ Even though we sinning men/ Look at what we did to him/ But he takes us back, and what we owed/ Was paid on the cross with the blood that flowed/ From the side of his body, now I'm in the body/ Of Christ in the light still I say I'm sorry/ To God for the charge that was held against me/ I'm forgiven because he was nailed to a tree/ So I yell and I scream as I'm telling these people/ That we need to be like Jesus and seek to
