Josh Wilson - Dream Small Lyrics

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

Dream small
Don't buy the lie 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 to bigger things, no
'Cause these simple moments change the world

So dream small
Don't buy the lie 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
Add up the small things and watch them grow bigger
The God who does all things makes oceans... from rivers

So dream small
Don't buy the lie 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 can feed them all
So dream small
Dream small

    My dad who passed away earlier this year absolutely adored this song. He sent it to me a while ago and I kind of forgot about it since it's not really my style of music. But I was reminded of it today and it made me cry. I love you, Papa.

    I think we should have big dreams, because God can do things that we never would have imagined. We don't have to do big things.

  44. ItzChr0nix

    god bless you all

  45. Abby Brown

    The earth day

  46. Minda Duffy

    A tiny rock can make. That is my favorite.

  47. bondservant4jesus

    I am not a winner in the world's standards. I am single, no children, live with my Dad and sister, my sister is also, going to be moving out and getting married, it's a hard transition for me. This song had me in tears. I especially like the part where it says, "Don't believe the lie,, you have to do it all." There is the American dream to have like a husband or wife, kids, grand kids, 2 cars, a house, stuff s that. But this song says it all, let God use you where you are in little ways and those ways can add up to big ways.

  48. Michael Waga

    S h i n e good afternoon hope your day is going well thank you for your radio station and all the awesome music you play💕

  62. Carlos Colindres

    Great song, but very sad that they hardly play this song on ceristian radios??????

  63. Michael Koch


  64. Maria Jorgensen

    Our school is singing this song for the spring concert!! God bless you, me and all!! How do people dislike this video?

  65. DefenderoftheCross

    The gospel is not about our good works. Our good works cannot change the world. Only the Word can do that. Our nice deeds give people good feelings, but leave them without the good news.

  66. Kathy Wears

    the Lord knows the tiny little things we do, and smiles when we love and serve others. Keep our motives pure in serving, Lord.

  67. Paul Kramer

    Great song but the lyrics need a change! "Dream small"?? No no no "Dream big"

  68. Yellow Fang

    Best song! When I’m listening to this I feel so much better knowing god is with me and you.

  69. Simon Kim

    Do you like the song?

  70. Simon Kim

    I love the song so much I am memorizing this song. Thank you Jesus Christ for this beautiful song.

  71. enforcer jj

    "dancing on a Friday with your friend that's special needs" sounds sweet, but it all depends on what you mean by dancing. It's a shame that most Christians these days have lost all discernment when it comes to the things we do with our time. Most forms of dancing these days is very impure. Most dancing involves actions and gestures which stem from impure and immoral acts, and is done to music that is far from glorifying to God. Ask yourself this - is this action appealing to my FLESH, or is it uplifting and edifying to my SPIRIT?  Proms are notorious sin infested flesh pleasing lust enticing temptations which the Bible CLEARLY tells us to FLEE!!!!  So are many other dance related events and activities!!  They are simply opportunities to fuel fleshly desires, entice OTHERS who may be watching as we wiggle and gyrate our bodies around in immodestly dressed clothes, again appealing to fleshly desires and NOT obeying God's commands to FLEE youthful lusts and occasions of temptation.  The overpowering rock beat that is ALWAYS present, usually in SINFULLY LOUD volumes (proven to damage our hearing, which is part of the TEMPLE OF GOD!) - why do you THINK that kind of music just BEGS to be "cranked up"???  It has a beat that appeals to the flesh and helps break down inhibitions and conscience.  There's a reason those who made it popular NAMED IT "Rock and Roll", which was itself a euphemism for sex. Shame on all of you who partake of it and those of you would CONDONE IT.

  72. Jodi Timmerman

    When my mom showed me this song I loved it, and now I am going to spread Jesus's love by singing this at church.

  73. Liz Brooks

    I love listening to my favorite song: dream small, by Josh Wilson! Thank you you tube!


    i love this song to alot to

  74. Jakob Anderson

    I can’t be the only one who thought he was going to say “makes oceans, deeper...” instead of “from rivers”, right?😂

  75. Kaili Dyck

    Shouldn't we be dreaming big?

  76. Richard Andrews

    I live in a small town in southern Pennsylvania, and it feels like this song applies to me so much where I live. There's 3 churches in my town (1 Presbyterian, 1 Methodist, and 1 Catholic), but yet there still seems to be a need for people to spread the Gospel more publicly, and this song inspires me to do just that.

  77. Heidi Holz

    I love this :)

  78. pee pee man

    I wish my dad and mom where still together

  79. MrInspirational43

    Born again Aspie who teaches children with autism and other special needs, this song really touches my heart. Thank you Josh Wilson for this touching quirky song about being able to do our part for Jesus.

  80. Zoe JoyRenee

    I love this song

  81. Bekfast Time

    The message in this song is awful. What’s wrong with having big dreams in life? That’s how you get the most out of life- aim to be the best at whatever it is you do. Thinking “realistically” is a roadblock in life. Of course, consider your options and consequences of pursuing dreams, but those risks should excite you instead of deter you. Living “safe” and “comfortably” is wasting your life away. Get out there and make the most out of life. Of course you should treasure the small things in life, too, but don’t make those moments the highlights of your time on earth.

  82. Charley Nope

    I sing the song at school.

  83. Diana Josephine

    Add up the small things and watch them grow bigger..The GOD who does all things makes oceans from rivers💖👏👌👌
    #this song's a great blessing!
    #GOD bless!!
    #Love and prayers from India!!

  84. Harmony Edwards

    Why some ppl don't like this song. I love this song and I love God forever! Thank u God and Jesus. For everything

  85. DJ girl gamer

    My granddaughter and I both love this song. It describes my fiancé who has since passed away, but lived the lines of the song. I still learn from his life.

  86. murage wanjohi

    Thanks for the encouraging song, we can all help someone at our level. Small things matter and we should all do our part in making the world a better place for the glory of God.

  87. Mary Moi

    I pray that u will be able to praise GOD in times of difficulty. please keep this up. I LOVE YOUR SONGS

  88. FallBongoBilly Gaming

    "Live well"
    "Find little ways only you can help
    "A tiny rock can make a gaint fall"
    If you feel suicidle or feel like yoy dont matter you do people care for you or if you know someone who feel suicidle smile at the say high give them a hug make them feel like they matter in this world
    "Find little way only you can help"
    Because all of gods creation matter but its up to you to make sure they know they matter
    And "let Jesus use you where you are"

  89. grace burns

    my mom is in love with this song and the line "the God who does all things makes oceans from rivers that is amazing and i am in love with this song as well

    Alex Williams

    I love that verse too!

    Like if it's good
    Comment any advice you could give plz

  91. Grace Crosina

    A tiny rock can make a giant fall, so dream small!!

  92. Arslaan Bashir

    I used this song for my school assembly for my harvest assembly

  93. George Wiley

    This is the absolute worst message for young men of faith. Dream small?! Man up people.

    t r e m o r s

    George Wiley God has a plan for everyone. But not everyone is meant to go out only the world and make dramatic changes anywhere and everywhere. Some people help the would by fixing the broken things right where they are. The world focuses on going out and changing everything. This song pulling away from that and saying how important it is to dream small. So please, man up

    Anne Pahlm

    George Wiley you are a Pharisees hypocrite just shut up

  94. Johnny Sarro

    "A tiny rock can make a giant fall"
    "The God who does all things makes oceans from rivers"
    "Five loaves and two fish can feed them all"
    Beautiful, heartwarming imagery. This represents well how our great God can make big outcomes from small actions. Thanks Josh!

  95. SerpentSlayer1

    Love this song. God Bless.! :)
