Gokey, Danny - If You Ain't In It Lyrics

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!

I've got things that I thought
Would fill my heart up, sittin' on top winning
But that ain't winning

I've chased all the good stuff, all the bad stuff
Stuff the world calls living
But that ain't living

Don't really matter what I do
Don't mean nothin' without You

I don't wanna have it all
Write my story any way I want
Everything will just fall apart
If You ain't in it (if You ain't in it)

I don't wanna get my way
No, I don't wanna run this thing
'Cause I know it all ends the same
If You ain't in it (if You ain't in it)

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!
If You ain't in it
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!

I want all that You want
All that You've got
Point my heart toward You
I want You too

Nothing else is gonna matter
If You're not what I'm after

I don't wanna have it all
Write my story any way I want
Everything will just fall apart
If You ain't in it (if You ain't in it)

I don't wanna get my way
No, I don't wanna run this thing
'Cause I know it all ends the same
If You ain't in it (if You ain't in it)

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!
If You ain't in it
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!

Here is my confession
I'm a man of imperfection
And my heart can go off chasin' empty things
But You keep runnin' toward me
Yeah 'cause You know what's best for me
And You know You are the only one I need

Oh I don't wanna have it, all
I don't wanna have it, all
If You ain't in it

I don't wanna have it all
Write my story any way I want
Everything will just fall apart
If You ain't in it (if You ain't in it)

I don't wanna get my way
No, I don't wanna run this thing
'Cause I know it all ends the same
If You ain't in it (If You ain't in it)

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!
If You ain't in it
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!
If You ain't in it

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!
If You ain't in it
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah!

  10. Haloh 4

    I love him he’s amazing this is my favorite song by him

  11. Brandon Kuhn

    I cannot stand Danny Gokey. This music video filled freemasonic satanic occult sign and symbols and yet my Christian brothers and sisters are too stubborn or blind or immature to see it. This man is not a Christian in any regard and he is truly a freemason spreading a false prosperity gospel and leading people into worldliness.

  12. Aldiefamily

    You are really encouraging to love God

  13. Jessica Burchell

    I love the spirit in the song. It makes me want to get up and dance and dancing is one thing I'm too self-conscious to do (in front of people anyway)
    My criticism: songs should address specifically who they are actually talking about. It may be harder to rhyme Jesus' name but it's powerful and it can be added in at least once otherwise who are we singing to or about? Otherwise, like the song says "He ain't in it." So, praise God maker of Heaven and Earth, Father to Christ Jesus who came to save all sinners who are willing to receive Him! I don't ever want life to get so "good" that I forget that I need Jesus! Thank you, God, for every good and perfect gift that comes from above. We thank you for providing us with our material needs as well as filling us with the joy of His salvation. I pray that Christian music will inspire listeners to pray, read their bible, and grow in a personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ. If you need prayer I will pray for you but you can always ask/ talk to Jesus anytime yourself. Don't give up before your miracle happens...

  14. Jessica Bender

    Your music is so uplifting and I love your songs!! leave a like if you love his music! 💕

  15. junfan31

    If You ain´t in It, there is no "I" in It……….. OM

  16. Barbara Jackson

    Thank you, Jesus!!!

  17. John B

    This vid was amazing, Big Props to Danny Gokey (I hear some of his songs on the radio every now and then), This song was awesome, I loved it, the Lyrics to the song have a good meaning behind them and Impacted me as well... like if God is not our lives then it won't be as good as if he is and is in control, and is helping us, you could taste the wonders of the world but it'd be nothing if God isn't in your life Amen, praise the Lord!

  18. Tony Coates

    Thank you! Danny Gokey and his band keep the faith in Jesus his music is a Blessing in these last days🕯🕺⛪🎤

  19. Diane Russell

    I love this song that true we don’t want anything if HE AIN’T In it

  20. TheWoodenTreeGaming

    if you feel down say:
    God I am a sinner but I need faith , hope and love please forgive me ,In the name of Jesus Christ amen.

  21. TheWoodenTreeGaming

    If god wasn't in my live I would hate my life and live in depression

  72. Aaron Harper

    If Yeshua's not in it.... flush it 😜😜😜

  73. Diane DeFeo

    Just listened to "Masterpiece" about six times. Now it's time to PUMP IT UP! Woo hoo! I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mr. Gokey. A humble, kind, unassuming man of faith. I wonder sometimes if he truly knows how many of us his music (prompted by Grace) has helped... Including me. Glory to God! Bless you all!

  74. Provoqe

    When your inner man is in communion with the Lord, you are in relationship with him.
    When your flesh is in communion with the Spirit of the LORD, you are in fellowship with him.

  75. Nexus Crescendo

    Ok....I'm not religious in the slightest and I heard this one the radio one day about 7-ish months ago and had no idea it was a hymn type of song. But you know what I don't care this song is a banger! I can't stop singing & dancing to it! And tbh they lyrics are so vague it can be religious, it can be for a friend, it can be for a lover. No matter what it's up to the listener to decide what it's for and that is exactly why I love this song!
    That and Danny's voice is pretty lovely to listen to as well 😊

  76. Anita Mazyck


  77. frank reimer

    This song is awesome! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😉😉😉😉

  78. Lisa Garza

    One of my favorite songs, love the beat! I Love God, he's got my back!

  79. Andrew Sarley

    I had just come out of a deep spiritual depression. Praying in desperation and what felt like vain words, I looked up an article by an Adventist which seemed to outline in clear detail everything I was going through and I was convinced for a time that I was a doomed man, and everything in my life [possessions, dreams, and hobbies] was revealed for the hevel (smoke) of which it was, meaningless.

    But then, God came through. My mother exposed the lies I was fed by the heretical article and I praised Jesus. I don't look back on this whole season with resentment but with thankfulness in my heart. The obsessions of this life lost their grip on me and I can leave my own little world unweighted by idols. It was a purification, a painful one, but in the end a liberating one. My mother was also strengthened by the experience.

    I look back on it now and see how our heavenly Father takes all things and uses them for good.

    Michael C

    Andrew Sarley Jesus loves you and you should make sure to be apart of his Apostolic Catholic Church! :)

  80. Andres Manuel

    He's doing satanic signs all song long


    It's actually sign language meaning love, if his thumb was inside then it's wrong.

  81. Andres Manuel

    You're illuminati

  82. Andres Manuel

    He keeps doing the horns sign with his hands at second 31,he's illuminati

  83. Andres Manuel

    He keeps doing the horns sign with his hands at second 31,he's illuminati
