  • You have to fix the mind before you can bestow the blessing
    Because until they get their mind right
    Everything you invest in them is going to leak out
    Of the crevices of a mind that refuses to change
    Look at your neighbor and ask them
    "Do you have a mind to change?"
    Wait for an answer
    If they said no, drag them to the altar
    Tell them they've got till midnight to get that fixed
    They've got till midnight to dump out all jealousy
    All pettiness, all unforgiveness, all strife, all malice, all confusion
    All blaming other people for your mistakes
    You've got till midnight to get rid of every poison
    That's hindering you, every inflexibility that's stopping you
    From what god is about to pour into your life
    War be onto you if you go into another year and
    Waste another year with the old mentality
    While somebody's in the hospital begging god
    For the opportunity that you have right now
    You better step into this moment

    Put your hand on your head and say, "give me a new mind"
    Give me new mind means give me a new perspective
    Give me a new perspective
    Give me a new way of looking at my situation
    Give me a new way of looking at my circumstances
    Get my mind ready for this year
    Because when I get this year there's gonna be blessings
    There's gonna be miracles, there's gonna be opportunities
    Oh, yes, it's gonna be some struggles
    It's gonna be some challenges
    It's gonna be some tests
    But even the struggles are an opportunity for me to show off
    The victory if my mind can handle the change

    ‌Do you have the mindset to be blessed?
    You have to decide to be blessed
    You have to decide, "you know what, this is a day
    That the lord have made, I will rejoice
    And be glad that I will rejoice"
    Let the past go and step off into the future

    Everything that's inflexible and everything that's not ready
    Everything that's backwards and everything that's negative
    And everything that's condescending and everything that's carnal
    And everything that's holding me back
    I refuse to take it over into another year and waste another
    New year with an old mind where the devil is alive

    I will rejoice

    I will rejoice

    Woah, Dorothy, I wanna tell you
    You could've been home a long time ago
    As soon as you decide to stop looking for answers in other
    People and miracles somewhere down the yellow brick road
    And click the heels of your mind and set your affections
    On things that are more
    You could have been free years ago

    I will rejoice

    I will rejoice

    I will rejoice

    Look at your neighbors, say you don't have to get out of trouble
    Tell them, you don't have to get out of trouble before midnight
    You just have to get your mind out of trouble
    If you can get your mind out, you can get your money out
    You can get your family out, you can get your job out
    You can get your career out, you can get your health out
    You can get your prosperity out, if you can get your mind out
    No devil in hell, no weapon formed against you
    No enemy that hates you, no witch that hexes you
    Can stop you from being free if you can get your mind out
    Grab yourself by the head and say, "we're coming out of there"

    I will rejoice

    I will rejoice

    I will rejoice Writer/s: Steve Angello, T.D. Jakes
