Casting Crowns - 'Nobody' (Official Music Video) ft. Matthew West

This song epitomizes the slogan, “It’s not about you.”   Casting Crowns lead singer Mark Hall explains that the band's single, "Nobody" is about John the Baptist. "When people came to him and wanted to know who HE was, they were dropping some rock star names on him.  'Are you Elijah?  Are you Moses?  Are you Abraham?'  [But] he didn't even tell them his name. He said, 'I'm nobody.  I'm just a voice out in the wilderness.'  He wasn't saying that because he was spiritual; he was saying that because he understood, telling people about 'me' isn't going to do anything for him when they could know Jesus!"

If others forget who we are, or the spotlight just won’t shine on us, then that’s just fine.  We’re nobodies who need to tell everybody about Jesus!

Here’s Casting Crowns’ “Nobody”….

"Nobody" Lyrics:
Why You ever chose me
Has always been a mystery
All my life I’ve been told I belong at the end of the line
With all the other Not-Quites
With all the Never-Get-It-Rights
But it turns out we’re the ones You’ve been looking for all this time

‘Cause I’m just a nobody
Trying to tell everybody
All about Somebody who saved my soul
Ever since You rescued me
You gave my heart a song to sing
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus

Moses had stage fright
And David brought a rock to a sword fight
You picked 12 outsiders nobody would’ve chosen
And You changed the world
Well, the moral of the story is
Everybody’s got a purpose
So when I hear that devil start talking to me, saying
“Who do you think you are”
I say…

I’m just a nobody
Trying to tell everybody
All about Somebody who saved my soul
Ever since You rescued me
You gave my heart a song to sing
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus

So let me go down down down in history
As another blood-bought faithful member of the family
And if they all forget my name, well, that’s fine with me
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus

So let me go down down down in history
As another blood-bought faithful member of the family
And if they all forget my name, well, that’s fine with me
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus

‘Cause I’m just a nobody
Trying to tell everybody
All about Somebody who saved my soul
Ever since You rescued me
You gave my heart a song to sing
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus
I’m living for the world to see
Nobody but Jesus
