Josh Wilson, “Dream Small”

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Josh Wilson has released his new digital single, Dream Small.

First off, let me say that Wilson has had a phenomenal track record of singles, in my opinion, among them Savior Please, I Refuse, Before the Morning, Pushing Back the Dark, and That Was Then, This is Now.

With Dream Small, adds another fine track to his remarkable discography of delightful, thought-provoking Christian pop-rock music. Running counter-culture to what the world normally tells us today, which is to dream big and aim to make a giant impact, Wilson makes the case for how the otherwise normal and unremarkable actions of people still can make a huge impact for Christ.

How does one sell this message? In the case of Wilson, by packaging it with irresistible melodies, passionate vocals, and a chorus that won’t quit. Wilson has always come up with great uptempo guitar tracks–reference Pushing Back the Dark and That Was Then, This is Now for a taste, in case you have never experienced his music, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed–and Dream Small continues that fine tradition.

With Dream Small, Josh Wilson remains one of my favorite CCM artists of this generation. Well-done.

DREAM SMALL Lyrics
Josh Wilson

It’s a momma singing songs about the Lord
It’s a daddy spending family time that the world said he cannot afford
These simple moments change the world
It’s a pastor at a tiny little Church
Forty years of loving for the broken and the hurt
These simple moments change the world

Dream small
Don’t bother like you’ve gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time
Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
Dream small

It’s visiting the widow down the street
Or dancing on a Friday with your friend with special needs
These simple moments change the world
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with bigger dreams
Just don’t miss the minutes on your way, your bigger things
‘Cause these simple moments change the world

But dream small
Don’t bother like you’ve gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time
Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
So dream small

Keep loving, keep serving
Keep listening, keep learning
Keep praying, keep hoping
Keep seeking, keep searching
Out of these small things and watch them grow bigger
The God who does all things makes oceans
From rivers

But dream small
Don’t bother like you’ve gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time
Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
Yeah, five loaves and two fish’s could feed them all
So dream small
Dream small
