"Here I Go Again" as written by and John Mark Hall....
Father, hear my prayer
I need the perfect words
Words that he will hear
And know they're straight from you
I don't know what to say
I only know it hurts
To see my only friend slowly fade away

So maybe this time I'll speak the words of life
With your fire in my eyes
But that old familiar fear is tearing at my words
What am I so afraid of?

'cause here I go again
Talking 'bout the rain
And mulling over things that won't live past today
And as I dance around the truth
Time is not his friend
This might be my last chance to tell him
That you love him
But here I go again, here I go again
Here I go again

Lord, you love him so, you gave your only son
If he will just believe, he will never die
But how then will he know what he has never heard
Lord he has never seen mirrored in my life

So maybe this time I'll speak the words of life
With your fire in my eyes
But that old familiar fear is tearing at my words
What am I so afraid of?

'cause here I go again
Talking 'bout the rain
And mulling over things that won't live past today
And as I dance around the truth
Time is not his friend
This might be my last chance to tell him
That you love him
But here I go again, here I go again
Here I go, here I go again

So maybe this time I'll speak the words of life
With your fire in my eyes
But that old familiar fear is tearing at my words
What am I so afraid of?

'cause here I go again
Talking 'bout the rain
And mulling over things that won't live past today
And as I dance around the truth
Time is not his friend
This might be my last chance to tell him
That you love him
This might be my last chance to tell him
That you love him
You love him, you love him

What am I so afraid
What am I so afraid
What am I so afraid of?
How then will he know
What he has never heard

    General CommentThis song is the best witnessing song I've ever heard. Of course, the only other witnessing song I know is Jesus Freak.

    General CommentThis song is so true, I've had this very feeling so many times in my life. lol which is why it's so awkward that I'm one of the first people any of my friends come to for religious questions. Oh well I'm happy to answer. Rock on Casting Crowns...Rock on for-e-ver lol

    General CommentI can't begin to tell everyone here how true this song really is. I have felt this way many times - with several people in my life, but the one that stands out for me the most is my brother...
    I told him about who God was and is in his life the very last time I saw him. I told him how much God loved him, and constantly, I would pray for God to give me the words to speak - the right words. I thank God that I did not hold back when I spoke to my brother - because really, it was my last time speaking to him. I told him that this song made me think of him - that I didn't want to lose him - and I prayed that he knew who Jesus was and is in his life. My best friend had lost her brother 2 weeks before this. I told him I didn't want to lose him. I gave him a CD. THIS was the first song on the CD. I wanted him to hear it. He said he would listen to it on the way home. Please note the lines: "time is not his friend, this might be my last chance to tell him that You love him". It was my last chance. My brother died 3 days later in a car accident. When I went to my mom's house that night, in her CD player, was the CD. THIS was the first song that played for me. God is real and He is with us. It is important that we share with the world Who He is. God bless you all.

    General CommentI love this song. I've been in this position more than once. I guess as Christians sometimes we just need to get out of our comfort zones for the sake of Christ and the souls of the people we love.

    General Commenthfaith209, you just made me cry.
    this song is the best.
    i believe it changes peoples lives.
    and i only wish more people would listen.
    i tried to make my boyfriend realize what god could do in his life, because i could see his life was heading downhill. he almost believed me, until our science teacher taught evolution. evolution should not be taught. it's a lie.

    General Commenti was forced to write a paper on evolution! something i don't believe in and goes against my religion. and yet they're even trying to take god out of the pledge of allegance because some people don't believe in it. how hypocritical is that?

    General Commentthis song helps me realise that there are still people who need saving. it motivates me
    to let go of meaningless things and actually try to help others
