"COMING OF AGE"

Coming of age!
Coming of age!
Coming of age!
Coming of age!

Verse 1
There comes a time in each of our lives
When we come to a crossroads and we've got to decide
Just what it is we're reaching for.
What is it that I want out of life?
Am I responsible, am I strong in the faith?
Do I feel that I'm ready, that I've got what it takes
To be used of God like I ought to be,
And be counted on to fill my place?
[Ya gonna fill it?]

Chorus 1
Coming of age, realize my calling and start
[Taking your place]
Today within the Kingdom of God.
[Learning to be]
Just what He wants me to be
That's coming of age.
[Coming of age.] [Yeah, -we're comin'!]

Verse 2
So much is given us,
So much freedom and grace.
Can we be trusted to keep Him in first place?
Can we uphold the standard and be true in
Everything we say and do? [Can you be true?]
There is a flame burning in each of our hearts,
An undying conviction that we've got to impart;
The sample of the love and dedication
That we find in the Word.
[In the Word!] [It's in the Word!]

Chorus 2
Coming of age, realize my calling and start,
[Taking your place]
Today within the Kingdom of God.
[Learning to be]
Just what He wants me to be-
That's coming of age.

Raggae DJ
Tune in to the King of sounds and blues!
Now, if ya learns ta be just what He calls ya to be,
Yah, me say me wants to know, so are ya of age?
Say yah! [Yah!]

Rap 1
I love teaching kids, 'cause they're the future,
My calling in life is to be a teacher!
Wherever I can I like to dance and sing!
I work in the office, computer's my thing!
I go out a lot and I love to witness.
I've learned to drive and I take care of business.
I'm a handy man and I work real hard,
All over the house and out in the yard.

Break
There's so many things we can do.
Just how fulfilled you are, well, that's up to you.

Rap 2
Well, I oversee the kitchen and I'm proud of
The food that we prepare with so much love.
Your time is never your own, I know what that means,
'Cause I'm a shepherdess and I work with teens.
I speak the local language and I teach it, too,
But provisioning is what I usually do.
There are so many things you can do, it's true,
But how fulfilled you are, well, that's up to you!

Music break:

Chorus 3
Coming of age, realize my calling and start
[Taking your place]
Today within the Kingdom of God.
[Learning to be]
Just what He wants me to be
That's coming of age. [Coming of age.]

Chorus 4
Coming of age, realize your calling and start
Taking your place within the Kingdom of God.
Learning to be, yeah,
Just what He's called me to be-
That's coming of age. [Coming of age.]
[Coming of age.]

Chorus 5
Coming of age, realize my calling and start
[Taking your place]
Today within the Kingdom of God.
[Learning to be]
Just what He wants me to be-
That's coming of age. [Coming of age.]
That's coming of age. [Coming of age.]
[Coming of age.]

[Repeat Chorus 4]
