Lyrics

“Echo”

by Colton Dixon

I’ve been around but I couldn’t tell
Before I fell for You
I was a sound that couldn’t get out
Until You pulled me through
Sometimes we miss the things
That life seems to throw our way
Because we haven’t tuned our ears
To hear the record playing
Beyond our imperfections
Trying to cut through the noise
I stand a broken man
Who longs to be Your voice
Well I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching for answers only you provide
Cause you know just what we need before we say a word
Cause I don’t just wanna fall in love with You
No I don’t just wanna fall in love with You
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
Of You
I see it now, I’m out of the clouds
With my radio in tune (You are the song, You are the song)
I hear it loud over the crowd
Teach me to sound like You
Sometimes we miss the things
That life seems to throw our way
Because we haven’t tuned our ears
To hear the record playing
Beyond our imperfections
Trying to cut through the noise
I stand a broken man
Who longs to be Your voice
Cause I don’t just wanna fall in love with You
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
Of You
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
I wanna be an echo
Of You, of You
I wanna be an echo of You3

The Christian Music Challenge 2.0 Devotional is our 30-day series of short video devotionals to encourage you to understand God’s purpose for Christian music and to incorporate it in your daily life.
Christian Music Challenge
This devotional is based on Al Menconi’s book, The Christian Music Challenge, which in turn was inspired by the biblical principle found in Isaiah 26:3 that reminds us to keep our mind focused on Christ and biblical principles, causing us to experience the peace of God. This is NOT salvation but simply a means to help us grow in our faith.
We developed the wristband as a reminder to continually focus on transforming your mind while you are going through the devotional.
We developed the tee shirt to encourage all participants to engage the public. It will get people wondering until they read the Scripture reference under “washed.” Romans 12:2 commands, “…do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
That’s what the Christian Music Challenge will help you do. Brain Wash, Wash Brain = Clean Brain. We are all about renewing our minds, which is helping us to become transformed to the likeness of Christ.
We strongly encourage all parents and teachers to read the Christian Music Challenge book. This will help you understand the pressure your children are experiencing daily and enable you to communicate values to your children.
