Lyrics

If I told you my story
You would hear Hope that wouldn’t let go
And if I told you my story
You would hear Love that never gave up
And if I told you my story
You would hear Life, but it wasn’t mine

If I should speak then let it be
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

If I told you my story
You would hear victory over the enemy
And if I told you my story
You would hear freedom that was won for me
And if I told you my story
You would hear Life overcome the grave

If I should speak then let it be
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my savior all the day long

For the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long

About This Song

"In Revelation, it talks about how we overcome the enemy by the blood of Jesus and the word of our testimony. That's our experience. The world has had an encounter in a lot of ways with a church that knows a lot of stuff about God. There's this disconnect between what we know and what it looks like in our lives. For us, this season is about beginning to walk in our identity of not only knowing who we are in Jesus, but what does that look like when we step out? Not only are we redeemed from who we were, but what does the story look like from here?

God has a purpose for every one of us, and it's not just to get out there and try harder for Him. It's to learn how to yield and learn how to lay down. The flesh part of me does not like dying. That's what this has to be. This carcass and all of its wishes and all it is prone to needs to learn how to die, so that then it's Christ who lives.

When the world sees people having an encounter with God, that's when it starts to look like God in us. When you look at the stories of people in Scripture, all of the patriarchs are all people who walked in an encounter with God. Moses and the burning bush, or Paul on his way to Damascus-- they have encounters with Almighty God. Paul encountered Jesus Himself. Those encounters began to show God working through them. That's the power of our stories."
