This song is written by Mark Hall and Stephen Curtis Chapman. Mark Hall shares what inspired him to write this song.

He describes two different atmospheres which many of us can relate to. It is an atmosphere where you feel that you are the only one that is different in this whole group and you feel left out and abandoned. One the the atmospheres for him was his school where he felt he was secluded and he cannot make it. Second atmosphere could shock you - it is the church. He felt everyone around him didn’t have any problems and were living a perfect life and he was the only one that was struggling.

This song says that when such voices come out from satan, the voice of truth which is the voice of God in you says a different story.

But the voice of truth tells me a different story

And the voice of truth says, “Do not be afraid!”

And the voice of truth says, “This is for My glory”

Out of all the voices calling out to me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

This is beautiful!

Full Lyrics

Oh what I would do to have

The kind of faith it takes to climb out of this boat I’m in

Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone

To the realm of the unknown where Jesus is

And He’s holding out his hand

_ _

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me

Reminding me of all the times I’ve tried before and failed

The waves they keep on telling me

Time and time again, “Boy, you’ll never win!”

“You’ll never win”

_ _

CHORUS:

But the voice of truth tells me a different story

And the voice of truth says, “Do not be afraid!”

And the voice of truth says, “This is for My glory”

Out of all the voices calling out to me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

_ _

Oh what I would do to have

The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant

With just a Sling and a stone

Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors

Shaking in their armor

Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand

_ _

But the giant’s calling out my name and he laughs at me

Reminding me of all the times I’ve tried before and failed

The giant keeps on telling me

Time and time again, “Boy, you’ll never win!”

“You’ll never win”

_ _

CHORUS:
But the voice of truth tells me a different story

And the voice of truth says, “Do not be afraid!”

And the voice of truth says, “This is for My glory”

Out of all the voices calling out to me (Calling out to me)

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

_ _

But the stone was just the right size

To put the giant on the ground

And the waves they don’t seem so high

From on top of them looking down

I will soar with the wings of eagles

When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus

Singing over me

_ _

CHORUS:
But the voice of truth tells me a different story

And the voice of truth says, “Do not be afraid!”

And the voice of truth says, “This is for My glory”

Out of all the voices calling out to me

I will choose to listen and believe

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

I will listen and believe

I will listen and believe the voice of truth

I will listen and believe

Because Jesus you are the voice of truth

And I will listen to you

You are…

Thank you for sharing. Its true that people hide within sheep clothing even in church. I myself has been fake many times when I go to church. Grateful to God that he loves me as I am :slight_smile:
