The Words I Would Say

I have a new favorite song. I don’t usually post these, but this one I just had to. The words strike me everytime I hear it…

The song is called “The Words I Would Say” by the Sidewalk Prophets. I heard it on the radio one night and immediately went home and bought it. There are only a handful of other songs that I have done that with. (Usually my music purchases involve me lamenting for at least 24 hours about the purchase… after all, it is a whole 99 cents I will not be able to recoup.)

Here are the words to the song…

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

And this link will take you to the story behind the song.

I hope you hear it sometime… I am apparently not tech-savvy enough today to find it so you can here it on the blog. Someday I will figure that out!
