I thought I knew You

1
I thought I knew You, I did not love You;
I thought I met You, I had only heard of You.
You whispered to me, I shut my ears, Lord.
You tried to show me that You could be something more.

And then You caught me—
The great love You had for me—
I could not help but love Thee.
Lord, Your compassion had drawn me so entirely.
At last, I glimpsed Your beauty.
2
I felt so filthy, You shone on my sin.
I asked Your pardon, then You cleansed me from within.
My eyes were opened, now I could see You.
You were more real than anything I ever knew.

And then You freed me—
You hung and died on a tree—
I wasn’t even worthy.
Lord, then You found me and rescued me from my sins.
Lord, You are full of mercy.

Our Lord is so precious. HE saves us from our naturalness, pride, lust and all things negative. PRAISE GOD! HE is my redeemer, savior and friend. Love HIM, enjoy HIM and spend time in HIS presence.

A lovely song indeed. It truly is God's kindness that leads us to repentance. [Romans 2:4] how kind and generous our God is, not only to save us but also to free us and renew us and then to use us! Glory to God!
