To Know You
To Know You
Why am i surprised
when i can close my eyes
in the midst of the darkness of failure
and find peace?
And why am i amazed
when in the dawn of the day
Mercy's already shining down on me?
don't i know you?
Life itself testifies
and mine's a witness
that God does not despise a humble heart.
In all creation,
in my sweet salvation,
in finding Him
these hands have had no part.
A thousand times You've lifted up my head
as may times i've looked into your eyes
beheld the glory of forgiveness on your face
but in my own meager strength i try
to make right the very reason that caused my head to fall
don't i know it's finished?
or understand Grace does it all?
Spirit of Truth break through this stuborn soul
break down the walls i've built up with my 'best'
that keep me bound by striving
that keep me from your blessed, promised rest.
i long to know you.
Tomorrow when i stumble short
Lord, draw me into your embrace
wrap me in your righteousness
keep me in your grace
so i may know you
so i may know you.
