What If I Stumble

Album: Jesus Freak (1995)

  • The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today
    Is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips
    Then walk out the door and deny him by their lifestyle.
    That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

    What if I stumble?
    What if I fall?

    Is this one for the people?
    Is this one for the Lord?
    Or do I simply serenade for things I must afford?
    You can jumble them together, my conflict still remains
    Holiness is calling, in the midst of courting fame

    Cause I see the trust in their eyes
    Though the sky is falling
    They need Your love in their lives
    Compromise is calling

    [Chorus]
    What if I stumble, what if I fall?
    What if I lose my step and I make fools of us all?
    Will the love continue when my walk becomes a crawl?
    What if I stumble, and what if I fall?

    What if I stumble, what if I fall?
    You never turn in the heat of it all
    What if I stumble, what if I fall?

    Father please forgive me for I can not compose
    The fear that lives within me
    Or the rate at which it grows
    If struggle has a purpose
    On the narrow road you've carved
    Why do I dread my trespasses will leave a deadly scar

    Do they see the fear in my eyes?
    Are they so revealing?
    This time I cannot disguise
    All the doubt I'm feeling

    [Chorus]

    What if I stumble?
    Everyone's got to crawl when you know that
    You're up against a wall, it's about to fall
    Everyone's got to crawl when you know that (2x)

    I hear You whispering my name [You say]
    "My love for You will never change" [never change]

    [Chorus: x2]

    What if I stumble, what if I fall?
    You never turn in the heat of it all
    What if I stumble, what if I fall?
    You are my comfort, and my God

    Is this one for the people, is this one for the Lord? Writer/s: DANIEL JOSEPH, TOBY MCKEEHAN
