I Know 03:41
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

Your grace to me is like the evening sky And I found, and I found It’s covering me and spreading out all around All around, all around Culture without You, in this culture without You May your mercy abound If my heart is a house of cards, Lord, knock it down Knock it down, may my suffering knock it down Your hand reaching down to me flying Close to the ground, too close to the ground World not about You, in this world not about You Your Love is unfound I may suspect we’ve become too proud to know You I pray we’re not too late to bow down before You Come back to me like the first small drops of evening rain From the sky, from the sky When tonight I know all heaven will come pouring down From on high, from on high Living without You, if I’m living without You A thinner disguise

True Vine 02:49
Child of sorrow, child of woe Holding out for better time Just don’t ask for contribution Yours is yours, mine is mine CHORUS: Catered to and amused Show me your sign Wisp of a dream Where is the True Vine? Where ocean depths flow Rainbows trace the rain You’re the Hope of every nation Solace for the pain CHORUS: Catered to and amused In the starry summer sky Wisp of a dream Where is the True Vine I feel Your promise in the morning I seek You, Lord, set me free Precious name, o how sweet Sweeter still Your face to see CHORUS: Catered to and amused In the starry summer sky Wisp of a dream You are the True Vine

Here I am again down on my knees tonight Another crisis, another trial, and I’m asking why It seems like circumstances are so messed up and You’ve left me on my own I can’t make out how this heartbreaking situation Could ever lead to anything that You might work for good It’s hard to take a step when I can’t seem to see where it will land But You call me to have faith, say Your ways are not my ways, and so I pray CHORUS: Help me to trust when I don’t understand Help me to be confident in Your master plan I may not comprehend it all, but You won’t let me fall Lord, help me to trust when I don’t understand When Abraham led Isaac up the mountain Did he fear that You had forgotten Your promises Did Gideon feel all alone when you told most of his army to go home When Lazarus died, did Martha see the reason Why Your response to her cry for help was so delayed Did Joseph feel deserted by You when jailed for doing only what was right CHORUS: Help me to trust when I don’t understand Help me to be confident in Your master plan I may not comprehend it all, but You won’t let me fall Lord, help me to trust when I don’t understand You never promised all the answers in advance, but You’ll take care of me, You’ll be there with me, and You are good CHORUS: Help me to trust when I don’t understand Help me to be confident in Your master plan I may not comprehend it all, but You won’t let me fall Lord, help me to trust when I don’t understand You’re in control, what else is there to know? Lord, help me to trust when I don’t understand

I look around this world at the things Your hands have made And I’m amazed at just the small part I can see The way things work together, the way the seasons change There are so many parts that are still a mystery But creation isn’t perfect since sin has entered in Groaning in labor pains till You set it right Recreate your pride and joy and make all things brand new With a land of no death, no sorrow, and no night Now the mirror’s dim, but soon we’ll see You face to face But right now it’s just the copies and shadows of that place CHORUS: Lord, I’m longing for that day When I will finally hear you say Well done, my child, you’ve finished a long race Now come into my presence And you can find your rest There are no more copies and shadows in this place You gave detailed instructions on how your temple should be built And I imagine that it was glorious to behold But the reason for those details was to give us a small glimpse Of how it’s gonna look when we walk those streets of gold Now the mirror’s dim, but soon we’ll see You face to face But right now it’s just the copies and shadows of that place CHORUS: Lord, I’m longing for that day When I will finally hear you say Well done, my child, you’ve finished a long race Now come into my presence And you can find your rest There are no more copies and shadows in this place We sing our praise together and raise our hands to You Making a joyful noise just as best we can But when people from every nation gather round Your throne There’s never going to be a better sounding band Now the mirror’s dim, but soon we’ll see You face to face But right now it’s just the copies and shadows of that place CHORUS: Lord, I’m longing for that day When I will finally hear you say Well done, my child, you’ve finished a long race Now come into my presence And you can find your rest There are no more copies and shadows in this place
