I Wish I Had Known You – Psalm 71:17

I Wish I Had Known You – Psalm 71:17

I wish I had know You
In the time of my youth
I wish I had understood You
As I grew up through life
So hen life got hard
Maybe I wouldn’t have fallen so far
But still You never left me
Waited for me to return home
And now I’m there I can say this
You marvellous deeds
Just within these last few years
And beyond any dream
Beyond comprehension
But I thank You still
That when life now becomes hard
Still You are there
With Your unfailing love

Turned Away – Psalm 71:17

Turned Away – Psalm 71:17

I wish I had known You
When I was young
I heard the stories
Yet never understood
There was a relationship to be had
Of Father and son
From where I could be guided
But from the stories I turned away
Would this all be so different?
If I learnt to love You then
Would I have fallen?
Into the ocean of the bottle
To relentlessly drown
Until You found me there
Would I have lived the righteous life?
If I had known of You back then
And not just turned away

Missed Your Voice – Psalm 71:17

Missed Your Voice – Psalm 71:17

In my youth
You spoke to me
Still I missed Your voice
You tried to lead me
Teach me Your ways
But I got lost in this world
Still when the time came
You were still there
Forever at my side
And then I heard Your voice
And found Your ways
Following You until I was home
And from that day
I praise Your name
For the great deeds
You have done in me

Psalm 71:17

Psalm 71:17

At times I wish I had know God in my youth, then all those mistakes of my life may never have happened.  But as it is, I have my testimony, I have the memory of those moments where God has clearly touched and changed the direction of my life and for that I am truly thankful and will always declare His marvelous deeds.

I HAVE THIS HOPE by TENTH AVENUE NORTH
As I walk this great unknown
Questions come and questions go
Was there purpose for the pain?
Did I cry these tears in vain?

I don’t want to live in fear
I want to trust that You are near
Trust Your grace can be seen
In both triumph and tragedy

I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go

But sometimes my faith feels thin
Like the night will never end
Will You catch every tear
Or will You just leave me here?

But I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go

But I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go

So, whatever happens I will not be afraid
Cause You are closer than this breath that I take
You calm the storm when I hear You call my name
I still believe that one day I’ll see Your face

And I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me
I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go

In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go

In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go
