​Give It All Away

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

I've held on for all this time
To something that was never mine
I've kept Your love like there was none to spare
I've heard the call and seen the need
But I've been lost in apathy
When did I get to comfortable to care?
The world is crying out
So hungry for a change
Lord, let us be the ones to say
Take my heart
Lord I pray
That I can give it all away
Let me give it all away
'Cause I long to feel compassion
For a world that needs Your grace
Take my heart
I want to give it all away
You have filled this empty soul
With mercy that has overflowed
The way You give to me seems so unfair
So here is my life it's all for the one
Who gave it all in the name of love
Now this hope You give to me
I've got to share
The world is crying out
So hungry for a change
Lord, let us be the ones to say
Take my heart
Lord, I pray
That I can give it all away
Let me give it all away
'Cause I long to feel compassion
For a world that needs Your grace
Take my heart
I want to give it all away
Let us be the change
Let us be Your light
Let us be Your hope
And let us give it all away
Let us be the change
Let us be Your light
Let us be Your hope
I want to give it all...
So, take my heart
Lord, I pray
That I can give it all away
Let me give it all away
'Cause I long to feel compassion
For a world that needs Your grace
Take my heart
I want to give it all away
Take my heart
I want to give it all away
Take my heart
I want to give...
I've held on for all this time
To something that was never mine

Behind the Song:
"Give It All Away calls for us to share everything in the name of Christ. The song begins and ends with the line, "I've held on for all this time, to something that was never mine." We often feel that we have to desperately keep all that God has provided, whether it is money or even love. We long to help and do what is right, but fear often blinds us to the struggles of those that surround us. I have long believed that the opposite of love was not hate but, rather, fear. We are so scared by the unknown, and hate is just a version of that fear. "Give It All Away" is our prayer for the strength to overcome the fear and simply give what Christ has called us to give, everything. "Take my heart. I want to give it all away!"" - Sidewalk Prophets
