Truth Be Told

January 6, 2020—

We often conceal our internal struggles from the world and our Christian family around us. Today’s song of the day expresses both our worries and the hope we have in God: “Truth Be Told” by Matthew West.

I say, “I’m fine, Yeah I’m fine, Oh I’m fine, Hey I’m fine”

But I’m not, I’m broken

And when it’s out of control I say it’s under control

But it’s not and You know it

Even when we put on a mask before the world, let us remember that there’s no hiding from God—He knows us and watches over us and comforts us throughout our lives.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Lie number one:
You're supposed to have it all together
And when they ask how you're doing
Just smile and tell them, "Never better"
Lie number two:
Everybody's life is perfect except yours
So keep your messes and your wounds and your secrets safe with you behind closed doors

But truth be told
The truth is rarely told

I say, "I'm fine, Yeah I'm fine, Oh I'm fine, Hey I'm fine"
But I'm not, I'm broken
And when it's out of control I say it's under control
But it's not and You know it
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
When being honest is the only way to fix it
There's no failure, no fall
There's no sin You don't already know
So let the truth be told

There's a sign on the door, says
"Come as you are," but I doubt it
'Cause if we lived like that was true
Every Sunday morning pew would be crowded
But didn't You say church should look more like a hospital?
A safe place for the sick, the sinner and the scarred
And the prodigals, like me

Well, truth be told
The truth is rarely told
Oh, am I the only one who says

"I'm fine, Yeah I'm fine, Oh I'm fine, Hey I'm fine"
But I'm not, I'm broken
And when it's out of control I say it's under control
But it's not and You know it
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
When being honest is the only way to fix it
There's no failure, no fall
There's no sin You don't already know
So let the truth be told

Can I really stand here unashamed
Knowing that Your love for me won't change?
Oh God, if that's really true
Then let the truth be told

I say, "I'm fine, Yeah I'm fine, Oh I'm fine, Hey I'm fine"
But I'm not, I'm broken
And when it's out of control I say it's under control
But it's not and You know it
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it
When being honest is the only way to fix it
There's no failure, no fall
There's no sin You don't already know
Yeah I know
There's no failure, no fall
There's no sin You don't already know
So let the truth be told
