I heard somebody say, no matter what you do
Before you speak your heart, know who you're talkin' to
What good are words if there's nobody listening
If you can testify, to what the Lord can do
Then don't you think it's time, to prove His promise true
If you believe that the message is clear
Then you must turn around, so the hungry can hear
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
We gotta show a dyin' world the power of love
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
How will they ever know if they don't see it in us
You just never know who might be listening
But if they can't hear us, the words mean nothing
When we say what we say we've got to face the nation
We tell the Lord we'll go, where He would have us serve
But sometimes honest vows, become just token words
Never fulfilling the call that's been given
When just outside our door, there waits a world in need
So many breaking hearts, that only He can see
We have the power that's found in His word
But we have to reach out, if we're gonna be heard
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
We gotta show a dyin' world the power of love
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
How will they ever know if they don't see it in us
You just never know who might be listening
But if they can't hear us, the words mean nothing
When we say what we say we've got to face the nation
"And Jesus said to them,"Go, therefore and make
Disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the
Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy
Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have
Commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, even
To the end of the age". (Matt.28:19-20)
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
We gotta show a dyin' world the power of love
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
How will they ever know if they don't see it in us
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
We gotta show a dyin' world the power of love
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
How will they ever know if they don't see it in us
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
When we say what we say, we've gotta face the nation
