Wherever I am, you were already there.
Whenever I run, you are still near
Whatever I think, you already know
Whatever I feel, you understand.
And I thank you that you know me and nevertheless love me, that you know me by name and forgive me
You stand me up right and lift me to you, and I thank you that you know me and nevertheless still love me.
You know my heart, the longing in me
As fully God and Man, you lived here
Just like us but without sin
You are merciful, and full of patience
This song always make me almost teary-eyed. I am not sure why but I become overwhelmed with God’s love and sacrifice for me. God’s infinite love, power and mercy are beyond comprehension. For me, the line in the chorus that says that God loves ME even though He knows ME. He loves me nevertheless, despite all of my sin, my faults, my thoughts, everything that is so “ugly” to Him. What an awesome God we serve! Never let me forget how much He loves me and how unworthy I am to receive that love.
