03. I Refuse

See You
by Josh Wilson



 

Sometimes I, I just want to close my eyes
And act like everyone’s alright, when I know they’re not
This world needs God, but it’s easier to stand and watch
I could say a prayer and just move on, like nothing's wrong

But I refuse

‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose not to move
But I refuse

I can hear the least of these, crying out so desperately
And I know we are the hands and feet, of You, oh God
So if You say move, it's time for me to follow through
And do what I was made to do, and show them who You are

To stand and watch the weary and lost
Cry out for help
I refuse to turn my back and try and act
Like all is well
I refuse to stay unchanged, to wait another day
To die to myself
I refuse to make one more excuse

Behind the Song:
"I wrote “I Refuse” with Ben Glover. All we really had was a song title. We knew we wanted to do a turn on that negative phrase. We wrestled with what to do with it and then kind of let it sit. Once the flood hit, that’s when it all came together for me. There was a very real temptation to pray and ask God to rally the community and bring people to help and raise money. I found myself using prayer as an excuse to not do anything. But as Christians, praying for others is not enough. We’re the hands and feet of Jesus; we’re supposed to do something. So that phrase came back to me, ‘I refuse to do nothing.’ That was all the inspiration I needed." - Josh Wilson
