From the recording Back to the Cross
"Worry" the last song on the album is different from the others both musically and lyrically. That's why I put it last. I wanted to leave listeners with the idea that they don't have to worry today or any day. Using some humor and sarcasm, I point out that worry is counterproductive. "Worry" It is a fun song, but one I pray will encourage believers in Jesus to trust God in all things. Jesus told us not to worry because He is in control! He not only promised He would take care of us, but also promised that worry would not change a thing. Worry, fear and anxiety have no power to change things for the good.
Here is what Jesus said about worry in Luke 12:22-26 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?"
What if you don’t see the sign?
What if you don’t make it on time?
What if you’re alarm never rings?
(I know I set it for the right time)
You can’t find a reason to sing!
What if you never win?
What if you can’t seem to get in?
What if your business fails?
(I invested everything I had)
Your ship it never sails!
Worry, Worry, Worry never changes anything!
Worry no more, Worry no more,
instead just give it to the King!
What if your car won’t start?
(It's that battery again)
Your hopes are blown apart.
Your dreams never do come true.
(That was a nightmare)
What will you do? (Worry)
What if your friends let you down?
A hurricane hits your town!
What if things don't go your way?
You just have a rotten day! (REPEAT CHORUS)
What if you stopped your worry?
What if you dropped your fear?
What if you give it all to God?
The one who holds you near!
What if you said a prayer?
What if you cast your cares?
There’s so much life to live!
There’s so much love to give!
There's no need to throw this day away
(with) (REPEAT CHORUS)
Come now to God.
and cast your burden down.
Come now to God and
cast your burden down!
