Songs of Encouragement: Voice of Truth

Voice of Truth
by Casting Crowns

Oh, what I would do to have
the kind of faith it takes
to climb out of this boat I'm in
Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown
Where Jesus is,
And he's holding out his hand
But the waves are calling out my name
and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
time and time again
"Boy, you'll never win,
you'll never win.

"But the voice of truth tells me a different story
the voice of truth says "do not be afraid!"
and the voice of truth says "this is for my glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh, what I would do
to have the kind of strength it takes
To stand before a giant
with just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand
But the giant's calling out my name
and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
time and time again
"Boy you'll never win,
you'll never win.

"But the voice of truth
tells me a different story
the voice of truth
says "do not be afraid!"
and the voice of truth
says "this is for my glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe
the voice of truth

But the stone was just the right size
to put the giant on the ground
and the waves they don't seem so high
from on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
when I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
singing over me

But the voice of truth
tells me a different story
The voice of truth says do not be afraid
And the voice of truth
says this is for my glory
Out of all the voices calling out to me (calling out to me)
I will choose to listen and believe (I will choose to listen and believe)
I will choose to listen and believe
the voice of truth
I will listen and believe
I will listen and believe
the voice of truth
I will listen and believe
'Cause Jesus you are the voice of truth
And I will listen to you.. oh you are

A young friend made me a handmade greeting card with some of the words to Voice of Truth. It meant a lot, because she was struggling with being the young wife of a drug addict while trying to provide for two young sons, one with disabiities.
I love the words to the song. Thank you!
