06. For What It's Worth

These Simple Truths
by Sidewalk Prophets



 

For what itís worth
Iíll give all that I have
Without ever looking back Iíll follow you
For what itís worth
I will offer up my life
As living proof of what Your love can do
I will run and not grow weary, I will walk and not be faint
I canít sing loud enough
I could never earn Your love
Iím just a glimpse of the hope You see in me
Hold my heart in Your hands
Jesus, help me understand
I can only give my life, for what itís worth
For what itís worth
I am standing here amazed
By the wonders that Your mighty hands have made
I donít deserve
To be covered by Your grace
So with every breath the least that I can say
I will run and not grow weary, I will walk and not be faint
I canít sing loud enough
I could never earn Your love
Iím just a glimpse of the hope You see in me
Hold my heart in Your hands
Jesus, help me understand
I can only give my life, for what itís worth
I will give my all to You my king
There is nothing more that you ask of me
I will lift will lift my voice, and I will sing
There is nothing more that I can give a king
I will lift my voice, I will lift my voice
I canít sing loud enough
I could never earn Your love
Iím just a glimpse of the hope You see in me
Hold my heart in Your hands
Jesus, help me understand
I can only give my life, for what itís worth
I can only give my life, for what itís worth



Behind the Song:
"For What Itís Worth is a phrase that has always meant a small amount. When we hear piece of advice prefaced by the phrase ďfor what itís worth,Ē our minds are usually preparing for a throw-away suggestion. This song tries to reverse this logic. In the verses, we are giving God our all but donít necessarily believe that our lives are worthy. We can never measure up to the grace, beauty, joy, etc. of our amazing God. All we can do is give our life in dedication to our King. The beauty is that our lives are precious and priceless to Christ. Though we ďcanít sing loud enoughĒ, and we are just a ďglimpse of the hopeĒ He sees in us, we can give Him the perfect gift, our lives, for what itís worth." - Sidewalk Prophets
