  • When did it become breaking a rule
    To say your name out loud in school
    When your names the only one that sets us free
    When did it become incorrect
    To speak the truth about life and death
    When your life gave us all eternity

    Even if it gets me convicted
    I'll be on my knees with my hands lifted

    If serving you's against the law of man
    If living out my faith in you is banned
    Then I'll stand right before the jury

    If saying I believe is out of line
    If I'm judged cause I'm gonna give my life
    To show the world the love that fills me
    Then I want to be Guilty

    I'll rise up and honor you
    I'll testify to all the good you do
    'Cause your Grace and your Mercy have overtaken me

    So even if it gets me convicted
    I'll be on my knees with my hands lifted

    If serving you's against the law of man
    If living out my faith in you is banned
    Then I'll stand right before the jury

    If saying I believe is out of line
    If I'm judged cause I'm gonna give my life
    To show the world the love that fills me

    Then I want to be Guilty by association
    Guilty of being a voice proclaiming Your ways
    Your truth
    Your life
    I'll pay the price to be your light

    If serving you's against the law of man
    If living out my faith in you is banned
    Then I'll stand right before the jury

    If saying I believe is out of line
    If I'm judged cause I'm gonna give my life
    To show the world the love that fills me

    Then I want to be Guilty by association
    Guilty of being a voice proclaiming Your ways
    Your truth
    Your life
    I'll pay the price to be your light
