04. The Words I Would Say

These Simple Truths
by Sidewalk Prophets



 

Three in the morning, and Iím still awake
So I picked up a pen and a page
And I started writing just what Iíd say
If we were face to face
Iíd tell you just what you mean to me
Tell you these simple truths
Be strong in the Lord
And never give up hope
Youíre gonna do great things
I already know
Godís got His hand on You
So donít live life in fear
Forgive and forget
But donít forget why youíre 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 Iíve already been there
So please hear these simple truths
Be strong in the Lord
And never give up hope
Youíre going to do great things
I already know
Godís got His hand on You
So donít live life in fear
Forgive and forget
But donít forget why youíre here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would
SayÖ from one simple life to another
I will sayÖ come find peace in the Father
Be strong in the Lord
And never give up hope
Youíre gonna do great things
I already know
Godís got His hand on You
So donít live life in fear
Forgive and forget
But donít forget why youíre 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



Behind the Song:
"The Words I Would Say is a fairly autobiographical song. Many nights, God would lay a friend or family member on my heart, and I wouldnít be able to rest without literally writing them a letter. All of the ďsimple truthsĒ contained in the chorus have, at one time or another, entered into those letters. One of the great appeals of this song is the perspective. It could represent a father or mother writing to a child who has left, a fiancť writing his bride to be, a friend writing a friend. No matter where the listener is in life, this song will hopefully remind them of someone that needs to hear about how much they are loved by the writer of the letter and by God. ďThe Words I Would Say,Ē is our letter to inspire many more letters." - Sidewalk Prophets
