Josh Wilson - Pushing Back The Dark Lyrics

One million reasons why, you shouldn't even try.
After all you're just one heart, a single candle in the dark.
And there are shadows here, feeding on your fears,
That you don't have what it takes - who are you to make a change?

But oh, oh, don't underestimate the God you follow.

Whatever you do, just don't look back.
Oh somebody needs the light you have.
Whatever you do, just don't lose heart.
Keep on pushing back the dark,
Keep on pushing back the dark.

The city on a hill, it should be shining still.
Every sinner saved by grace, has a purpose, has a place
Inside the bigger plan, we might not understand.
But if we just keep walking on, we will see the Kingdom come, yeah.

Whatever you do, just don't look back.
Oh somebody needs the light you have.
Whatever you do, just don't lose heart.
Keep on pushing back the dark,
Keep on pushing back the dark.

(Let your lights all shine...)
Oh, oh, don't underestimate the God you follow.
He is the light that burns inside your soul,
So keep on shining 'til the whole world knows.

Whatever you do, just don't look back.
Oh somebody needs the light you have.
Whatever you do, just don't lose heart.
Keep on pushing back the dark,
Just keep on pushing back the dark, dark.

Whatever you do, just don't look back.
Cause somebody needs the light you have.
Whatever you do, just don't lose heart.
Keep on pushing back the dark,
Keep on pushing back the dark, yeah

(Let your lights all shine)
When you feel like you're too small
(Let your lights all shine)
To do any good at all
(Let your lights all shine)
Like a sunrise through the window
(Let your lights all shine)
Like a symphony crescendo
(Let your lights all shine)
We are waking up again, we are rising from the dead
(Let your lights all shine)
We are shining like the stars, we are pushing back the dark
(Let your lights all shine)
Yeah, we are pushing back, pushing back the dark
(Let your lights all shine)
We are pushing back, we are pushing back, pushing back the dark
(Let your lights all shine)
Just pushing back, we are pushing back, pushing back the dark
(Let your lights all shine)

  57. AllfortheEBchildren

    Josh Wilson's songs have helped many people in my family, especially before the morning, because of a baby named Quinn who had a skin disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa. It causes blisters to form on your skin just at touch. Quinn died at eight months old and Josh Wilson came to Stow Ohio to perform his songs at a church there for Quinn's (would be) second Birthday. Thank you Josh Wilson, you change so many lives.

    I would learn the words if someone would make a lyric video. I cant find one. I would make one, but i dont have the song and i dont know the words. : ( sorry.

  77. Brooke Bistline

    Today was a bad day. I had a dark cloud hanging over me, trying to push me under not allowing me to get out and play my rugby game today, and I just had no will to try. I tried to pray, but evil was winning. After the game, I went to my car about ready to give up and wanting to ball my eyes out, but this song came on, and I knew: yes, evil won for a little but, but I can turn that around. The game was done, stress lifted, and I needed to push back the dark and break through to see what God can do with me. It was one day, and even though evil made it seem like my life was dependent on this, it wasnt. God can and did get me through today and will do amazing things. I cant underestimate Him.

  78. Iyos Sirait
