Father, You Know Me

 

Father, You know me too well,

You know when I lie down

You know when I arise

You hem me in from afar.

 

You knew me in my mother’s womb

Before the world was formed you knew me even then.

For who am I to stand up against You?

And for what purpose would it possibly serve?

 

Though these words sound familiar

You are the same God that they spoke about

You knew them just like you know me all too well

It was You who made all things and called us unto You.

 

When we sin we would like to find a place to hide

From You there is no such place on earth or in heaven

Even if we sink into the abyss of the dungeons of hell

We still cannot hide from You, nor should we want to.

 

So what am I to do… there is no escape from You?

I already love You more than I could love this self of mine

There are no more praises that You haven’t heard before

All that I could possibly give already belongs to You.

 

I guess You never tire of hearing those three tiny words:

 

I LOVE YOU!

I ADORE YOU!

I MAGNIFY YOU!

YOU ARE AMAZING!

You alone are God

You know me all too well

So may I just call You…

LORD

ABBA

FATHER
