The Words I Would Say - Sidewalk Prophets






Yesterday, I found another song to add to my list of songs on repeat. I've heard this one before when one of my friends shared it on Google+ (and which I subsequently shared there). But yesterday... something in the lyrics touched me...

I've been told some of these lyrics before... repeatedly actually. Not word for word, but the message was the same. And, time and again, I've ignored those words. But it's a good message... and one I truly do need to hear from time to time. I think we all need to hear it. It's some simple truths which are quite easy to forget...


The Words I Would Say 
by Sidewalk Prophets

Three in the morning, and I'm still awake
So I picked up a pen and a page
And I started writing just what I'd say
If we were face to face
I'd tell you just what you mean to me
Tell you these simple truths

CHORUS
Be strong in the LORD
And never give up hope
You're gonna do great things
I already know
God's got His hand on You
So don't live life in fear
Forgive and forget
But don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say

Last time we spoke you said you were hurting
And I felt your pain in my heart
I want to tell you that I keep on praying
That love will find you where you are
I know cause I've already been there
So please hear these simple truths

CHORUS

Say... from one simple life to another
I will say... come find peace in the Father

Be strong in the Lord
And never give up hope
You're gonna do great things
I already know
God's got His hand on You
So don't live life in fear
Forgive and forget
But don't forget why you're here

Take your time and pray
And thank God for each day
His love will find a way
These are the words I would say
