I’m tired of sitting down
Laying face down on the ground
Letting people walk all over me
Not going to take it anymore

My God gave me a voice to use
So tell everyone the news
Gonna speak my mind
Gonna make myself heard

This is the sound of being bold
Claiming the promises of God’s Word
Gonna let the whole world hear
I ain’t showing them no fear
This is the sound of my battle cry
Growing louder as time goes by
Making a difference in this world
This is the sound of a revolution

Does anyone else feel this way?
Do you have anything to say?
Stand up, let yourself be heard
Today is the time to speak

We need to talk about our Lord
Today I’m picking up my sword
Gonna make a stand
Come on and raise your hands

This is the sound of being bold
Claiming the promises of God’s Word
Gonna let the whole world hear
I ain’t showing them no fear
This is the sound of my battle cry
Growing louder as time goes by
Making a difference in this world
This is the sound of a revolution

No more timid
No more shy
I’m changing now
Before your eyes


Confident
Unashamed
Let these words define me now

This is the sound of being bold
Claiming the promises of God’s Word
Gonna let the whole world hear
I ain’t showing them no fear
This is the sound of my battle cry
Growing louder as time goes by
Making a difference in this world
This is the sound of a revolution

This is the sound of being bold
Claiming the promises of God’s Word
Gonna let the whole world hear
I ain’t showing them no fear
This is the sound of my battle cry
Growing louder as time goes by
Making a difference in this world
This is the sound of a revolution
Let’s start a revolution!


The author's comments:
My friend yelled 'It's the sound of a revolution!' one day, just out of the blue. Not connected with anything we were talking about or continued talking about. I thought it sounded like the title of a song, so, being the random person I am, went home and wrote a song for the title. Hope you like it. :)
