PEOPLE ARE WATCHING THE WAY YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE,
IF YOUR TESTIMONY BRINGS GLORY AND HONOR TO CHRIST;
WHEN HARD TIMES COME ALONG YOUR WAY,
PEOPLE WILL BE LISTENING TO WHAT YOU SAY.
PEOPLE ARE WATCHING THE WALK YOU WALK,
THEY ARE LISTENING TO THE TALK THAT YOU TALK;
IF YOU BECOME DISHEARTENED, WEARY, OR WEAK,
THEY STILL TAKE NOTE OF EVERY WORD YOU SPEAK.
PEOPLE ARE WATCHING TO SEE THE STAND YOU TAKE,
SOME ARE EVEN WAITING FOR YOU TO MAKE A MISTAKE;
SO STAY FAITHFUL TO THE TASK THE LORD GIVES YOU TO DO,
FOR FAITHFULNESS IS SOMETHING PEOPLE NOTICE, TOO.
YES, PEOPLE ARE WATCHING, AND ALWAYS WILL BE,
YOUR LIFE SHOULD BE A LIGHT THAT OTHERS MIGHT ALWAYS SEE;
SO KEEP YOUR LIGHT SHINING BY STAYING ON YOUR KNEES,
FOR THERE YOU'LL FIND STRENGTH FOR EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
There is always someone watching your life, so stay on your knees, and the Lord will give you the strength you need.
