Walking with you is not without hazards
Trippings this traveler's curse
Price paid for falling is more than my stumble
In a world that is watching and waiting for words

But I listened when You said to go
And I set out in spite of my fears
About truth mixed with my imperfection
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 and 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 the tonight?

Now 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.

Cause on every face I detect
The same questions I've posed to you
Like do you speak through the imperfect
Are we too dirty for your light to get through?
I want your light to get through.

What should I tell them when
They're thirsty Lord
My cup is empty Lord
Come and lead me here in this place
'cause I'm unashamed, but I'm unprepared
And I'm just plain afraid

    General CommentWe all have doubts about what we were put on this earth to do, but God has a plan for us, we need to trust him even when we are afraid.

    General Commentits like saying that being w/ Jesus is hard but like as long as He's next to us we should tell the world about Him...

    General CommentI agree with both of your opinions, but may i add, that he is specifically bringing up the point of being a Christian that Lives out Loud, that when we live these tough lives and tread difficult paths, but ultimately come out ontop because of Jesus' love and guidance, that we should tell others of His love, to win souls for Him
    The song shows, at its end, that so many of us come to a point where we have every reason to share, yet are afriad of others and not trained in the spreading of the word, but we should try in every way to tell others of HIS love, and not just rely on those few great men and women in the evangelist titles

    General CommentI think it means that after we have grown so much spritually we want to share Jesus but because of who we used to be and because how imperfect we still are , we are afraid
