The Krychocosm - Episode VI: Knowing You


video


original "Knowing You" by Graham Kendrick ((c)1993 Make Way Music)
w/ new verses by me

Why do I shed tears though I know your name,
And I tremble though you say, “be strong?”
I try hard, my Lord, but I’ve failed again.
Though you fill, I feel an empty shell.

but
Knowing you, Jesus, knowing you –
There is no greater thing.
You’re my all, you’re the best,
You’re my joy, my righteousness,
And I love you, Lord!

You’re my steadfast friend when I know it not.
This I am assured – tomorrow, I’ll see
That you hold me close and you keep me warm –
While my heart is cold, you’re loving me!

Knowing you, Jesus, knowing you –
There is no greater thing.
You’re my all, you’re the best,
You’re my joy, my righteousness,
And I love you, Lord!

Won’t you break my heart with your gospel truth
As you make me more like you today?
Oh, my hope is sure, I cannot be moved!
I am washed in love and saved by grace!

Knowing you, Jesus, knowing you –
There is no greater thing.
You’re my all, you’re the best,
You’re my joy, my righteousness,
And I love you, Lord!

  1. Dear daughter of my heart, do you realize how your countenance changed as you worshiped Jesus? You went from "having a rough day" to glowing with joy. :) Good reminder to me that our God inhabits the praises of His people. I need to worship more. Love you!!

  2. Jaimie,

    You have such a lovely voice- wouldn't you know, this is the first time I heard it. Totally not the voice I was expecting to come from you! lol This was such an encouragement even to me. Praying for you! May your days be filled with joy, and your sorrows too.
