For What It's Worth

This song is by Sidewalk Prophets and appears on the album These Simple Truths (2009).

For what it's worth
I'll give all that I have
Without ever looking back I'll follow you
For what it's worth
I will offer up my life
As living proof of what Your love can do
I will run and not grow weary, I will walk and not be faint

I can't sing loud enough
I could never earn Your love
I'm just a glimpse of the hope You see in me
Hold my heart in Your hands
Jesus, help me understand
I can only give my life, for what it's worth
For what it's worth

I am standing here amazed
By the wonders that Your mighty hands have made
I don't deserve
To be covered by Your grace
So with every breath the least that I can say
I will run and not grow weary, I will walk and not be faint

I can't sing loud enough
I could never earn Your love
I'm just a glimpse of the hope You see in me
Hold my heart in Your hands
Jesus, help me understand
I can only give my life, for what it's worth
I will give my all to You my king
There is nothing more that you ask of me
I will lift will lift my voice, and I will sing
There is nothing more that I can give a king
I will lift my voice, I will lift my voice

I can't sing loud enough
I could never earn Your love
I'm just a glimpse of the hope You see in me
Hold my heart in Your hands
Jesus, help me understand
I can only give my life, for what it's worth
I can only give my life, for what it's worth

Behind the Song:
"For What It's Worth is a phrase that has always meant a small amount. When we hear piece of advice prefaced by the phrase "for what it's worth," our minds are usually preparing for a throw-away suggestion. This song tries to reverse this logic. In the verses, we are giving God our all but don't necessarily believe that our lives are worthy. We can never measure up to the grace, beauty, joy, etc. of our amazing God. All we can do is give our life in dedication to our King. The beauty is that our lives are precious and priceless to Christ. Though we "can't sing loud enough", and we are just a "glimpse of the hope" He sees in us, we can give Him the perfect gift, our lives, for what it's worth." - Sidewalk Prophets
