Song By Aliyah Moffett

If Only You Knew

 

There he goes again

Standing on the ledge

if only you knew

 

Tears roll down her eyes

When she takes the knife

If only you knew

 

A gun pointed to his head

Wishes that he were dead

If only you knew

 

There she takes the pills

Handfuls of death to kill

If only you knew

 

For your words hurt them

Your hits bruise

Hope is shattered

They’re confused

Joys been stolen

From their soul

They don’t know

What to live for

If only you knew

If only you knew

 

Restricting what she eats

She has reached her peak

If only you knew

 

Smoking weed all day

Helps take the pain away

If only you knew

 

Baby slits her wrists

Hoping to pass from this

If only you knew

 

Voices race in head

“You’re better off dead”

If only you knew

 

If only you knew how they feel

If only you knew the pain was real

If only you knew how broken they are

If only you knew how they feel

If only you knew the pain was real

Yeah yeah

If only you knew

If only you knew

If only you knew

If only you knew

 

That your words hurt them

Your hits bruise

Hope is shattered

They’re confused

Joys been stolen

From their soul

They don’t know

What to live for

 

If only you knew

If only you knew

If you only knew

God’s response to Aliyah Moffett song

If you only knew

 

When I heard Aliyah sing her song, I perceived it differently. Her song was hauntingly beautiful. I loved it!  I heard God saying “If only you knew what I will do”  He then took 3 nights at 3 am speaking over 39 verses to me and I wrote them down and then pondered “What I was to do with this Lord?”  Aliyah and I, about 3-4 months later, were invited, for the first time, to give a song at a worship and testimony event.  I had approached Aliyah on numerous occasions concerning what God had given me to help her to see what God was saying to her, that she was going to give a testimony and that testimony would be powerful to the transforming power of God in her and other’s lives.  She said, “I like the song the way it is.”

 

3 days before the event she said, “I get it!”  Together, we reworked all 39 verses, through prayer, under the power of the Holy Spirit, is what was prepared and presented. We only practiced it once before presenting. It became a spoken word. I read the stanzas, while she played the tune to her song and then we sang the “If only you knew what I will do,” and the chorus together. To God be the Glory!!!!

 

  1. You shouldn’t be in judgment

I come to their defense

The hurt, the scars, the memories

Is my plan for recompense

 

With My love and redemption

I showed them the way

To bring healing and love

To their heart each day

 

 

The doors were open wide

The smile that you now see

They knew how to decide

It’s my love that set them free

 

If only you knew

What I will do

 

Your words may still hurt them

But they know just where to go

To hide in my presence

To find a peace in their soul

 

The knife, pills, and hate

Are no longer at stake

It’s only my love,

My will to re-create

 

They’ve been healed and set free

To share my story

Of healing and forgiveness

My Love on Calvary

 

 

 

If only you knew

What I will do

 

chorus

That your words hurt them

Your hits bruised

Hope was shattered

They were confused

Joy was stolen

From their soul

They didn’t know

What to live for

 

But then they found

What my love will do

 

And then they knew

What my love will do

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. The healing that I gave

The way for them I paved

For them to tell their story

Another life to save

 

The cuts, bruises, binges,

And thoughts of suicide

I knew they would endure

And whispered my love inside

 

The knife, drugs, and tears

Are the things that I use

To bring hope to the nations

To bring healing to you

 

If only you knew

What I will do

 

 

 

3. To bring hope for the hopeless

The hurting, and the weak

To strike the enemy down

Is my promise that I keep

 

His job is to steal

To kill and destroy

He laughs and taunts them

And plays them like a toy

 

 

 

The enemy is real

To ensnare and fully scare

I deliver in my power

Through prayer for their welfare

 

If only you knew

What I will do

 

chorus

That your words hurt them

Your hits bruised

Hope was shattered

They were confused

Joy was stolen

From their soul

They didn’t know

What to live for

 

But then they found

What my love will do

 

And then they knew

What my love will do

 

 

4. My power is made perfect

In their weaknesses they see

My power is their story

For everyone to be set free

 

 

 

Their story reflects my glory

For I too was badly bruised

The hurt I fully experienced

I planned so they would not lose

 

The chance at eternal salvation

And a forever life in me

Full freedom and surrender

All because of Calvary.

 

If only you knew

What I will do

 

 

 

 

5. Because of their story

The hopeless will kneel

For my hope and love

Forgiveness they’ll feel

 

The life and love I offer

I offer to you as well

It is a love like none other

My stories for YOU to tell

 

Our lives are a woven tapestry

Each thread is given for others

To live it may look messy

To love one another.

 

 

 

chorus

That your words hurt them

Your hits bruised

Hope was shattered

They were confused

Joy was stolen

From their soul

They didn’t know

What to live for

 

But then they found

What my love will do

And then they knew

What my love will do

If only you knew

What I will do

If only you knew

What my love will do

If only you knew

What I will do

God's word
