I Refuse



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 pray 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.
I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself.
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,
Then it's time for me to follow through,
And do what I was made to do.
Show them who you are.




'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care.
I don't want to say another empty prayer.
I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself.
I could choose
Not to move but I refuse.



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. 



'Cause I don't want to live like I don't care.
I don't want to say another empty prayer.
I refuse to
Sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself.
I could choose
Not to move but I refuse.
