I’ll Show You

A catchy bass line anchors this tale of lifestyle evangelism.

Excuse me, you said, but could you keep your Jesus to yourself?
So desperate to change the conversation to something else
You get uncomfortable in the presence of the Holy Spirit
You need to see Jesus, But you sure don’t want to hear it

So I won’t tell you the endless limits of His love
and I won’t speak of the kind compassion from above
I won’t mention the things that you suspect are true
If I can’t tell you, I’ll show you

You’ve been lied to and passed around, Your skepticism is rightfully found
And it’s no wonder why, once you’re bitten you’re twice as shy
Words alone won’t prove what a single act of love might do
I may not say His name, but I’ll introduce you just the same

So I won’t tell you the endless limits of His love
and I won’t speak of the kind compassion from above
I won’t mention the things that you suspect are true
If I can’t tell you, I’ll show you

There’s seldom winners in a highly ‘philosized’ debate
Before I preach to you, I should take the time to appreciate
Your dreams and struggles and attempts to live your best-laid plans
Before I speak I must first offer my hand

So I won’t tell you the endless limits of His love
and I won’t speak of the kind compassion from above
I won’t mention the things that you suspect are true
If I can’t tell you

So I won’t tell you the endless limits of His love
and I won’t speak of the kind compassion from above
I won’t mention the things that you suspect are true
If I can’t tell you, I’ll show you
