I Know
by on April 17, 2014 in Song Stories

Do you know anybody that is always chasing that next big thing? I know several people like that. They grab ahold of the latest fad or get-rich-quick scheme or hobby and they are really excited and happy – for a little while. The next time you see them they are miserable about their lives again. Or maybe some crisis has hit and they don’t know how they are going to get through. But soon they have found something else to give their life “meaning” and they are riding high again and then down and back up and down and back up on the vicious roller coaster. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

I’ve helped a lot of people over the years only to see them ride the roller coaster back down into the dumps. I know that the only thing that is going to stop that cycle is a relationship with Jesus, but most of the time I don’t tell them that. It’s easier for me to do something or give some money than risk getting them upset at me by telling them where the real answer to their problems lies. That’s what the song “I Know” is all about – this is me telling them what I really ought to tell them if I truly want to help them out.

He’s the answer for you, too. I know it.


I know your world is crashing down again
I know you’ve hit that great big wall again
The next big thing turned into one more waste of time
You thirst for something to bring some meaning
Feel like a failure and don’t know where to turn
Cause how can you start over when you feel so far behind?/

I know I’ve been right there for you again
I know I’ve come each time you’ve called again
But now it seems that I’ve been holding out on you
You see the secret that I’ve been keeping
Is what you needed but I was too afraid
So the help that I was giving wasn’t that much help at all

CHORUS:
But I know, I know, I know the answer
I know, I know, I know the One
Who will wash the slate clean, start a new scene, forget your tragic past
I know, I know, I know the answer
I know, I know, I know the One
Who can give it all to you, life that’s brand new, joy that’s meant to last
He’s what you’re searching for and He’s waiting at the door
I know

I know He’s calling out to you again
I know He’s willing to forgive again
But you think it doesn’t matter, that these gods are all the same
I’m gonna tell you about a Savior//Who is the reason that I’m satisfied
He is the purpose and the meaning, and Jesus is His name

CHORUS:
But I know, I know, I know the answer
I know, I know, I know the One
Who will wash the slate clean, start a new scene, forget your tragic past
I know, I know, I know the answer
I know, I know, I know the One
Who can give it all to you, life that’s brand new, joy that’s meant to last
He’s what you’re searching for and He’s waiting at the door
I know

Don’t let fear or questions keep you from His grace
Let me take you to the cross so you can see the Savior’s face

CHORUS:
But I know, I know, I know the answer
I know, I know, I know the One
Who will wash the slate clean, start a new scene, forget your tragic past
I know, I know, I know the answer
I know, I know, I know the One
Who can give it all to you, life that’s brand new, joy that’s meant to last
He’s what you’re searching for and He’s waiting at the door
I know
