Testify

Needtobreathe

GIVE ME YOUR HEART
GIVE ME YOUR SONG
SING IT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
YOU CAN BE SATISFIED
THERE IS A PEACE, THERE IS A LOVE
YOU CAN GET LOST INSIDE
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
LET ME HEAR YOU TESTIFY

INTO THE WILD
CANYONS OF YOUTH
OH THERE’S A WORLD TO FALL INTO
WEIGHTLESS WE’LL DANCE
LIKE KIDS ON THE MOON
OH I WILL GIVE MYSELF TO YOU
AS SOON AS YOU START TO LET GO

GIVE ME YOUR HEART
GIVE ME YOUR SONG
SING IT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
YOU CAN BE SATISFIED
THERE IS A PEACE, THERE IS A LOVE
YOU CAN GET LOST INSIDE
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
LET ME HEAR YOU TESTIFY

WAVE AFTER WAVE

AS DEEP CALLS TO DEEP
OH I’LL REVEAL MY MYSTERY
AS SOON AS YOU START TO LET GO

GIVE ME YOUR HEART
GIVE ME YOUR SONG
SING IT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
YOU CAN BE SATISFIED
THERE IS A PEACE, THERE IS A LOVE
YOU CAN GET LOST INSIDE
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
LET ME HEAR YOU TESTIFY

THERE IS A PEACE, THERE IS A LOVE
YOU CAN GET LOST INSIDE
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
LET ME HEAR YOU TESTIFY

MIST ON THE MOUNTAIN
RISING FROM THE GROUND
THERE’S NO DENYING BEAUTY MAKES A SOUND
WE CAN’T ESCAPE IT
THERE’S NO WAY TO DOUBT
MIST ON THE MOUNTAIN
RISING ALL AROUND

GIVE ME YOUR HEART
GIVE ME YOUR SONG
SING IT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
YOU CAN BE SATISFIED
THERE IS A PEACE, THERE IS A LOVE
YOU CAN GET LOST INSIDE
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
LET ME HEAR YOU TESTIFY

THERE IS A PEACE, THERE IS A LOVE
YOU CAN GET LOST INSIDE
COME TO THE FOUNTAIN
LET ME HEAR YOU TESTIFY

    TESTIFY!

    “TESTIFY!” By Need To Breathe:

    “Give me your heart
    Give me your song
    Sing it with all your might
    Come to the fountain
    You can be satisfied
    There is a peace There is a Love
    Let me hear you TESTIFY!”

    Yesterday morning, as I was winding down to go to bed but trying to wind up a few things as well. (I sleep days and work graveyard.) Anyway, just in the middle of my muddle, my apartment manager called. She has just recently taken over,and we don’t have a long history yet. She said, “Susan, we didn’t get your rent.” It was now the 5th, and it was due the 3rd. I responded with alarm! I knew my bank was overdrawn, but for a steep fee they pay my bills anyway. But being overdrawn and not having money to cover the rent in another way is alarming. The late fee is very steep! I stammered that I would check into it and get back to her.

    When I checked, somehow the automatic payment hadn’t been scheduled. I called her back and told her that I had made an error. I had become somewhat alarmed, because I seemed to really be in a deep hole that I couldn’t figure out how to crawl out of.

    I knew I would get paid tonight, but it was already 1/4 gone with overdrafts. I told her I could get the required money order and asked how much she would need? She told me she would waive the late charge if I got it to her in the morning. I agreed, thanked her, and we ended the call

    Now I went to work to see what my financial status was at the bank. It turned out that the best I could figure my check would be, I was going to be short. My mind was now racing, how could I make up the short fall?

    It was time to get some sleep. I knew I was under a spirit of oppression. I gave it to God and went to sleep a few hours late.

    When I got up last night to go to work, i began praying and, guess what? Pleading! Help! I was oppressed. I know that spirit.

    I took a long hot bath and played my African American Gospel Songbird, Kekalyn Carr: “You’re Bigger,” “Curse Breaker,” “You Spoke Over Me,” “You Are Good!” Then I heard over and over in my spirit, “When the wheels fall off!” TobyMac!

    So I put on “Till The Day I Die!” I let it play over and over:

    “Till the wheels fall off
    Till the spotlight fades
    I will lift your banner high
    I will lift your banner high
    And till the walls crash in
    For the rest of my days
    I’ll lay it all on the line
    Till the day I die
    Till the day I die
    Till the end of the line
    Till the day I die
    It’s your name I will glorify!

    This is the third stanza and the chorus in this song. During it the Lord whispered, what if you became homeless, would you turn back? No, Lord, I’ll lay it all on the line till the day I die, I replied. At that point, you know, the oppression lifted. Why! Because I laid it all on the line and gave it all to him. Peace! No care! “Peace I give to you, not as the world gives.” I’ve been homeless. I’ve been terminally ill, but God gives peace not as the world gives. Let go and let God. What’s the worst that can happen? I die and go to be with my Lord!

    So I knew that something would happen. Of course, God knew all along what was going on and what would happen. But one more time he brought me to the state of a servant depending only on him and willing to go where he goes. (And now I hear Ruth pleading with Naomi: “Where you go, I will go. Your people shall be my people; your God, my God. Where you dwell, I will dwell.”)

    When I got to work and got my check out of my box, there were two envelopes. Inside each was a check. I thought at first, Hurray! A bonus this year!

    But to my amazement, there were 2 payroll checks. I had neglected to pick up the one from the 20th! So now I am ahead, and who knows? There is still a chance of a bonus.

    But the panic was just as real as if I was a month behind and facing eviction. The difference is that when we throw ourselves COMPLETELY on the Rock of our salvation, we are broken but not crushed.

    So even before I had gotten the checks, God had begun to say, TESTIFY! TESTIFY! Testify to my grace, my peace, the freedom in serving me first! And “Need to Breathe” breathed in my spirit:

    There is a peace, There is a Love
    You can get lost inside
    Come to the fountain
    Let me hear you TESTIFY!

    When I feel the Holy Spirit surround me I cry so profusely, my face contort and it is painful. Last night on my way home from work I heard your song for the first time and I cried,painfully. Tonight I heard your song and when the Holy Spirit surrounded me I felt Sensations of all my hair standing out, tickling my scalp and every hair on me it made me giggle and laugh with joy., how wonderful that the Holy Spirit has given me a wonderful experience. Thank you for using your talents for The Lord

  • Daily I awake with a song or a word in my spirit. Today I awoke with this song.
    The lyrics are beautiful!
    Come to the fountain you can be satisfied
    He is our satisfaction and our peace!
    Our very present help in time of need.
    I’m excited for what God is doing and how He is moving in lives, nations people groups. We may not see Him working behind the scenes but can trust His power and might and perfect timing in our lives.
    I’m a single mom with three children trusting God and this song in the early hours of the morning truly blessed me
    Thank you for writing the lyrics
