I locked up my heart and I put on a show
I let the busyness of life be a wall so nobody gets close
Well I got a lot done, yeah, I’m so type A 
But I’m finding arm’s length is a safe but lonely place 

So I’m gonna choose to reach out 
Choose to lay down 
All of the fear that I’ve been hiding 
Choose to be brave 
Though my heart’s afraid 
To be a part of Your Kingdom rising, oh 
God, I’m done running from 
The reason that You sent Your Son 
So I will choose to love 

Well it’s always a risk and it’s always a dare 
But it’s a far more dangerous thing to listen to fear
But it’s a beautiful thing to know and be known 
Yeah, there’s a whole lot of life outside of my comfort zone 

So I’m gonna choose to reach out 
Choose to lay down 
All of the fear that I’ve been hiding 
Choose to be brave 
Though my heart’s afraid 
To be a part of Your Kingdom rising, oh 
God, I’m done running from 
The reason that You sent Your Son 
So I will choose to love  

I’ll choose to trust 
Oh God, let my heart be tender in a world so tough 
I’m gonna choose to love 

I’m gonna choose to reach out 
Choose to lay down 
All of the fear that I’ve been hiding 
Choose to be brave 
Though my heart’s afraid 
To be a part of Your Kingdom rising, oh 
God, I’m done running from 
The reason that You sent Your Son 
So I’m gonna choose to love 
Maybe I’ll hurt, maybe I’ll bruise 
Maybe I’ll cry, maybe I’ll lose 
Still I will choose to love
