07. Bring It On

Declaration
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

I didnít come lookiní for trouble
And I donít want to fight needlessly
But Iím not gonna hide in a bubble
If trouble comes for me
I can feel my heart beating faster
I can tell somethingís coming down
But if itís gonna make me grow stronger thenÖ

Bring it on
Let the lightning flash, let the thunder roll, let the storm winds blow
Bring it on
Let the trouble come, let the hard rain fall, let it make me strong
Bring it on

Now, maybe youíre thinkiní Iím crazy
And maybe I need to explain some things
ĎCause I know Iíve got an enemy waiting
Who wants to bring me pain
But what he never seems to remember
What he means for evil God works for good
So I will not retreat or surrender

Now, I donít want to sound like some hero
ĎCause itís God alone that my hope is in
But Iím not gonna run from the very things
That would drive me closer to Him
So bring it on

Bring it on
Let the lightning flash, let the thunder roll, let the storm winds blow
Bring it on
Let the trouble come, let it make me fall on the One whoís strong
Bring it on
Let the lightning flash, let the thunder roll, let the storm winds blow
Bring it on
Let me be made weak so Iíll know the strength of the One whoís strong
Bring it on
Bring it on

Behind the Song:
'I got the music idea at my kidís homecoming football game. I started humming ĎBring It Oní and I actually wrote part of the music in my head. I called my cell phone and left it on my voice mail so I wouldnít forget it. Several months later I was starting to work on the record and was working on the lyric. The day I was working on one of the verses my mom called me and told me she had been diagnosed with cancer. I really debated at that point whether to finish the song. I thought thatís a bold statement. I thought it might even be stupid to make that statement. I knew what I meant by it but was that just asking for trouble? I wondered if it would offend somebody. Like, you donít know the pain Iíve been through. I didnít want it to be a flippant thing. I really wrestled with this song. I decided to finish it and put it on the record. Ultimately I know in my heart what I mean by this and I can honestly say that I think itís something that is truth. I need to be able to say it and need to say ĎGod if itís gonna bring me closer to you and be a part of Your hand at work in my life then let it come, bring it on.í' - Steven Curtis Chapman
