about

DEO GLORIA is the first compilation mix tape for Kathula Prudhvi Raj, a songwriter, composer, lyricist and emerging Christian HipHop artist currently in undergraduate studies at Karunya University, in India.

Kathula’s songs speak simultaneously about Jesus, and about his own desire to devote his life and gifts for God’s glory. By setting Scripture into hiphop’s contemporary, yet contextual narrative structure, (often re-working the 16-bar hooks that become the meaningless focus of commercial Rap) - Kathula focuses listeners on an emotive, ‘sound’ as companion to Scripture’s homiletic. The result? Kathula’s music reveals God’s unfolding will from his personal Christian perspective, his walk with Christ, through his journeys in pain, redemption and salvation - inviting us not into the embrace of the most High and of Jesus Christ as the son of man.

Track Name: Kathula Prudhviraj Raj - 01_MY FORTRESS
MY FORTRESS [based on] psalm 91
KATHULA PRUDHVI RAJ

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say[a] to the Lord, ìMy refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.î
3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,

but it will not come near you.
8 You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling placeó
the Most High, who is my refuge[b]ó
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
14 ìBecause he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;

OUTRO

I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.î

BLESSED ONES
KATHULA PRUDHVI RAJ

yeah…

verse 1
-Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
(Those that see themselves as sinners and who seek God's forgiveness)

-Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
(Those that mourn over their sin turning to the Lord strength to overcome their sins)

-Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
(Those who put aside pride who seek the Lord's will
in all they do and live in the strength the Lord gives)

-Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled. (Those that seek the God's truth and
reject sin in their lives.
Righteousness means to be right. Right in one's belief and in their relationship to God
. It means living according to the faith presented in the Bible)

verse 2

-Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
(Those that show grace to others as the Lord shows grace to those who believe in Him)

-Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
(Those that by simple faith in Jesus Christ have believed and receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
The pure in heart are those God has saved and imparted righteousness meaning unmerited favor)

-Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
(Those that seek to win others to the Lord Jesus Christ who believe God's word and seek
to bring peace to those who are lost in their sins that they too may come to know Jesus Christ as
their Savior and find true eternal peace)


-Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
(Those that are peace makers who often are misunderstood, belittled,
often scorned, treated badly and down through history many were martyred and
killed by those who do not like to be told they are sinners or did not want to hear the truth.
You see the first step in coming to Jesus Christ as one's Savior is
to come to the understanding that we are sinners under the condemnation of sin.
Most people do not like to hear anyone tell them they are lost and sinners and it often does
not make any difference that it is not the believer who is says men are sinners....
but God Himself.

OUTRO

Each of these principles deal in some degree with a person's testimony for the Lord. This brings us to the statements Jesus made in Matthew 5:13-18.
I. You are the Salt of the Earth. Matt. 5:13 Jesus in these verse sums up the collected truth of the eight principles of the B-attitudes.

Tell th’devil you made a wrong pick
Tell em I have Jesus,
Tell em I’m cleansed clean,
Tell em in only Christ I lean,
I think enough you’ve seen,
I send my lines with prayers

They’re so deep with interwoven layers
It’s an antidote for all fears,This’s the time for three cheers
It’s a lesson to all my pears
Don’t just believe every thing you see or hear
Just believe that becoz of Christ you’re here
Open the word and check it out fella
This will sound better than live accapellla
Stay away from this false fella
Stay far from this false fella

What I make is pure hope
Thatz why my song is so dope
Don’t go with a false pope
It’s like climbing up with un-tied rope
My grandpa truly made it clear
He told me to leave my life with out fear
That’s reason I fight against every tear
Maybe I’m more than just an engineer
This is the third verse packed with power
I’m the legend born, stronger than ever
On the geometric progression to success
This is the answer for all denied access
Call me incredible
cuz my lines are smoother than pebbles
My thoughts are sharper than parable
Don’t portray my god in a wrong manner
Don’t false prophecy mr. tin canner
Do good and be good,

I’m an artist with a pen and paper
Revelation is what I believe in every manner
My life is pre written in god’s hands
I’m an entreprenuer on my own standing
Filled with ambition so strong
I’m a verbal cyclone against wrong
Catch me if u can or keep up
I’m too rapid for your vision so heads up
Brimmed with power of angels of lord
I’m the majestic image of god
I create new trends in my own way
Trendsetter u can call me by the way
God of hosts is a voice I build on
Definite in my paths I roll on
To deceive good is bad
To work for god is good
To work against god is bad
Being is false preacher is so sad

Lyrics Joel Jacob and kathula prudhvi raj
feat. Nick Mathew

VERSE 1
Bomb blasts, scary acts
Unbelievable facts, world nuke p acts
War and peace ,world on cease
I am nuke against all these weapons
I am soldier you prepare to fight against
My song is a boost to millions and trillions ,zillions and crowded pavilions
Iím the 16 bar decoder, Iím like a missile waiting for its order
Iím the war trumpet locked and loaded ,
I feel debated disputed
War,ye war in the world
, world is at stake, peace is what we need to make
Our life is just fake ,if we donít resolve this mistake
People on people, nations on nations
War on war,
its like an eye for an eye
Babe,plz we are in new testament, its time for some refreshment
Build some life with your life full of forgiveness
You can be a man more or less
So, why live a life full of stress
This much lime light would be enough I guess
Jesus is peace for us
Jesus is hope for us, he is the salvation
so why donít we go with this chorus

HOOK
War is all , I see
Weapons on a spree
Christ peace is all , that sets me free

War is all , I see
Weapons on a spree
Christ peace alone
Thatís all I want

VERSE 2
You haters are just empty shells,
You drop down like u just took sleeping pills
Iím the tip of live wire ,I spark up like a forest fire
Jesus is what I desire,to fill every person with holy fire
Peace starts to kindle when it starts to dwindle
Jesus peace is simply essential
Jesus is the only person who can handle
My life is an example to make u move
Christ peace in all that sets my move
In Christ peace alone I groove

HOOK
War is all , I see
Weapons on a spree
Christ peace is all , that sets me free

War is all , I see
Weapons on a spree
Christ peace alone
Thatís all I want

VERSE 3
To all the people I make this Mass proclaimation ,
I pray for this congregation
I work for Christ elevation,I break every speculation
My will is unbreakable, it is just incredible

At times I felt like Iím standing on a battlefield
No turning back is what I understood on this field
Then a miracle happened to me
Christ came and he rescued me
He set me free
And this is what I choose to be
And like I said Christ peace is all that sets me free
And I am free now , ya

HOOK
Christ is all i see
Cruci -fied on that tree
Just for me
To set me free

There on that cross
Whilst in agony
It is done ,said he
Now Live Child
Ö You're free

CORNER STONE
KATHULA PRUDHVI RAJ



Lord,
sometimes
thou we are standing in the midst of millions
we feel like rejected
like an abandon element
cornerstone

VERSE 1:
I know one things true
sometimesYou may fill exactly what iím filling right in row
Going threw same sort of anger and helpnessness
May be the right word would be heart broken
When the things turn against you and you donít have nothing to say about it
Like Christ said in mattew 8:18 that foxes have holes birds in air have nest but the son of man has nowhere to lay his head
When you commit your life to god your marked persecuted and rejected
when your are working with god itz u and Christ against the world
Everything he wants us to do will quickly unfold
Do you think itz contentment with life well itz all about commitment with Christ
Christ doesínt need perfectionists
Christ is always looking for people like you and me , i donít look for peopleís acceptance cuz in Christ iím aleady accepted
There might be many who feel lost rejected broken segregated as a matter a fact the stone rejected by the people became the cornerstone

CHORUS:
STONE REJECTED BY PEOPLE BECAME THE CORNERSTONE
STONE THAT WAS FELT UNWORTHY BY THE PEOPLE BECAME THE CORNERSTONE
JESUS THE CORNERSTONE
JESUS THE CORNERSTONE
VERSE 2:
Huhh
Unashamed to be called as sevant of god i surrender my life to god
And now my soul is a property of Christ blood and his body
When he touches and catches you miracles happen like angels wings just grew from your back
Well thaz metamorphic
Every day i thank god for his amazing grace that showerd upon me till this day
There were times when my career came to dead end
I had faith but i didínt know that that it would be new beginning in trinity
I know iím sinner ,unworthy clay in potterís hands
Heyy iím lucky cuz Christ is always looking for a sinner here i am
Kneeling down in his presence the chosen one
I donít talk complex itz the holy reflex
I am the abandoned element for this world
Unworthy
But for jesus Christ iím the chosen element chosen for his glory
Itmay be people ës rejection that is stopping me
But the fact comes first
The stone rejected by the people became the cornerstone

CHORUS:
STONE REJECTED BY PEOPLE BECAME THE CORNERSTONE
STONE THAT WAS FELT UNWORTHY BY THE PEOPLE BECAME THE CORNERSTONE
JESUS THE CORNERSTONE
JESUS THE CORNERSTONE

So you u feel rejected lost rejected broken so here the good news
In Christ your accepted so if u are marked and persecuted in Christ your the blessed one
Cuz he himself became the cornerstone
Jesus the corner stone

yeah

verse1


Now when the Human One comes
in his majesty and all his angels are with him,
he will sit on his majestic throne. 3
2 All the nations will be gathered in front of him.
He will separate them from each other,
just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
33 He will put the sheep on his right side.
But the goats he will put on his left.


verse 2

34 ìThen the king will say to those on his right, ë
Come, you who will receive good things from my Father.
Inherit the kingdom that was prepared for you before the world began.
35 I was hungry and you gave me food to eat.
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink.
I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
36 I was naked and you gave me clothes to wear.
I was sick and you took care of me
. I was in prison and you visited me.í

37 ìThen those who are righteous will reply to him,
ëLord, when did we see you hungry and feed you,
or thirsty and give you a drink?
38 When did we see you as a stranger and welcome you,
or naked and give you clothes to wear?
39 When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?í

40 ìThen the king will reply to them,
ëI assure you that when you have done
it for one of the least
of these brothers and sisters of mine,
you have done it for me.í

OUTRO

41 ìThen he will say to those on his left,
ëGet away from me, you who will receive terrible things.
Go into the unending fire that has been prepared for
the devil and his angels.
42 I was hungry and you didnít give me food to eat.
I was thirsty and you didnít give me anything to drink
43 I was a stranger and you did nít welcome me.
I was naked and you didnít give me clothes to wear.
I was sick and in prison, and you didnít visit me.í

44 ìThen they will reply, ëLord, when did we see you hungry or
thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and
didnít do anything to help you?í 45 Then he will answer,
ëI assure you that when you havenít done
it for one of the least of these,
you havenít done it for me.í 46
And they will go away into eternal punishment.
But the righteous ones will go into eternal life.î
