Should I Tell Them Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves

Walking with You is not without hazards
Tripping's this traveler's curse
The price paid for falling is more than my stumble
In a world that is watching and waiting for worst

But I listened when you said to go
And I set out in spite of my fears
I brought truth mixed with my imperfections
And the question of what to say when I got here
And now that I'm here

Should I tell them that You are
The One who has made me
And saved me to set up a home there inside
Should I tell them that I am
A perfect example of all You can do with a life
What should I say to them, what if I'm failing them?
What should I tell them tonight?
Don't get me wrong
I'm thankful to be here
With this song to sing and a spotlight on me
But lately I'm wondering if You are mistaken
If You're seeing all of me there is to see
But on every face I detect
These same questions I've posed to you

Like do You speak through the imperfect
Or are we too dirty for Your light to get through
I want You're light to get through


'Cause they're thirsty but my cup is empty
Come and meet me here in this place
'Cause I'm unashamed, and I'm unprepared
And I'm just plain afraid

Story Behind The Song:
Like the prophets of the Old Testament I've wasted time running from God's plan for me. Along with God's voice calling me into full-time ministry I've often heard another distracting whisper. Satan has deceived me many times, reminding me of every sin, every failure, everything that makes me unfit for ministry. This song asks God if He really wants a failure like me, a chief sinner, to speak for Him. He reminds me daily that it is not I who speak or live but He who speaks and lives through me. That's grace. (Galations 2:20, John 15:5, Psalm 51:17)
