Have a little drink
No, thank you, brother
Want to get rich?
Don't need it brother

Wanna fool around?
No, thank you sister
Ain't you heard that
That old evil man within me died?

Let's have a party
I ain't going
What you gonna do?
Gonna keep praying

And keep working out my salvation
Trying to get sanctified
No more condemnation, repented
Jesus brought salvation, He saved me
Justification brought me safely to His side

And as I get to know Him more
He gives me a taste of the coming glory
And I'm trying to whip the devil
I'm trying to get sanctified

Sanctified, sanctified
I'm working to whip the devil
I’m trying to get sanctified

Don't go to church
Yes, I'm going
Why you read that old Bible?
'Cause I like it

Well, I don't believe in God
Well, God bless you
You ain't got no argument
For what I feel inside

Aww, have a little fun
That's what I'm having
Life's passing you by
I can hardly wait

Well, I've got my mind set upon eternity
Trying to get sanctified
And there's no more condemnation, I repented
Jesus brought salvation, He saved me
Justification brought me safely to His side

And as I get to know Him more
He gives me a taste of the coming glory
And I'm trying to whip the devil
Trying to get sanctified

Sanctified, sanctified
Sanctified, sanctified
Yes, I'm trying to whip the devil
I'm trying to get sanctified

Sanctified, sanctified
Sanctified, sanctified
I'm working out my salvation
Trying to get sanctified
Sanctified
