"Keep Quiet" as written by and Alyssa Katherine/barlow Barlow....
All the things I've sacrificed
So that I could bring You to this world
I want them to see You in me
But Your name just keeps them far from me

So, I'll keep quiet
Let's hope they see I'm different

Jesus, Jesus, why's Your name offensive?
Why are we so scared to tell this world You saved us?
When all of the hope of the world's in Your name
Why are we so scared to say, oh, Jesus, yeah, Jesus

If I avoid to speak Your name
Tell me would You do the same to me?
If relevance becomes my goal
Tell me will I lose You to its hold

But if I keep quiet
They'll never see I'm different

Jesus, Jesus, why's Your name offensive?
Why are we so scared to tell this world You saved us?
When all of the hope of the world's in Your name
Why are we so scared to say, yeah, Jesus, whoa, Jesus, yeah

I'm sorry, I've cared about my name more than Yours
I'm so sorry, how could I hide You anymore?
But if I keep quiet
They'll never see I'm different

Jesus, Jesus, why is Your name so offensive?
Why are we so scared to tell this world You saved us?
When all of the hope of the world's in Your name
Why are we so scared to say, oh Jesus, whoa Jesus, yeah
Oh Jesus, whoa Jesus

    General CommentWow, noone commented yet?
    I love this song and I can indentify with the lyrics.

    To me it's a perfect description of how I feel
    "If I avoid to speak Your name
    Tell me would You do the same to me
    If relevance becomes my goal
    Tell me will I lose You to its hold
    Bus if I keep quit they'll never see I'm different"

    Sometimes I am afraid to stand up for what I believe, but if I don't speak Jesus' name how can I expect Him to speak mine?

    This song is a blessing :D
