I Refuse Lyrics

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 say 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
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, 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
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
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, 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
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I refuse
I refuse

What a beautiful song, incredible message of god love, walking in obidence. Jesus didn't say to keep our salvation to ourselves. He said to spread it around. He said go. I refuse to look the other way

I believe this song speaks for itself. We need to refuse to look the other way. If you see some one who needs help, help them. Show them God's love, mercy, salvation, the power to overcome. Show them God is real, and that he loves us always. God is great!

Well I just went to Nicaragua a couple of months ago, and I didn't wait for someone else to do my calling. I went and served the Lord. So I also think this song is telling us to go and serve.

I really feel this song says it all. It tells us to SERVE others. By serving the needs of others, we are in fact, serving GOD, doing his work. Beautiful, very moving song..it is hard not to cry.

Such a touching song. I'm praying for you, Josh. Please continue to touch people's hearts with the message of God. Jesus didn't say to keep our salvation to ourselves. He said to spread it around!!!

Can anyone actually sing this song through without crying--or at least choking up? It's an amazing blend of conviction and hope...I love it!
