From the CD God City USA (2014)

In one of several collaborations from his newest release, God City USA, singer/writer/producer Canton Jones teams up with songstress and radio personality Darlene McCoy for a moderately-paced Christian hip-hop performance of “More of You.”
McCoy kicks off the track’s opening verse with a melodic declaration of adoration and submission before sharing the mic with Jones for a harmonic duet of the chorus: “Just give me all of You and none of me, Lord / Let Your kingdom come, let Your will be done.” As the song moves forward to reverb-heavy rhythm, Jones spins a rhyme and, true to his knack for marrying the lingo of the secular and sacred, he petitions the Lord: “I need more of your spirit; Lord, pour another round.”
“More of You” could be described as a loose urban adaptation of The Lord’s Prayer.
