Lyrics

You don’t answer all my questions
But you hear me when I speak
You don’t keep my heart from breakin’
But when it does, you weep with me
You’re so close that I can feel you
When I’ve lost the words to pray
And though my eyes have never seen you
I’ve seen enough to say

I know that you are good
I know that you are kind
I know that you are so much more
Than what I leave behind
I know that I am loved
I know that I am safe
Cause even in the fire to live is Christ, to die again
I know that you are good

I don’t understand the sorrow
But you’re calm within the storm
Sometimes this weight is overwhelming
But I don’t carry it alone
You’re still close when I can’t feel you
I don’t have to be afraid
And though my eyes have never seen you
I’ve seen enough to say

I know that you are good
I know that you are kind
I know that you are so much more
Than what I leave behind
I know that I am loved
I know that I am safe
Cause even in the fire to live is Christ, to die again
I know that you are good
You are good
I know

On my darkest day
From my deepest pain
Through it all, my heart, will choose to sing your praise
On my darkest day
From my deepest pain
Through it all, my heart, will choose to sing your praise
On my darkest day
From my deepest pain
Through it all, my heart, will choose to sing your praise

I know that you are good
I know that you are kind
I know that you are so much more
Than what I leave behind
I know that I am loved
I know that I am safe
Cause even in the fire to live is Christ, to die again
I know that you are good
You are good
I know

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

"Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." -Isaiah 41:10

I continue to see an extensive amount of research reveal that more people than ever are dealing with anxiety, worry and fear. It can be so crippling. But there is an antidote! We have the answer that can and will make a difference! We KNOW the truth of God's love. I believe this song will not only offer encouragement, but also remind listeners that they can have confidence in the love and goodness of God. Our God is compassionate, quick to forgive, slow to anger and abounding in loving-kindness! (see Nehemiah 9:17)

"This song was written in a really difficult season of heartache. You can't stand on what you don't know. But if you can think on the times you when you've seen God to be faithful. You've experienced HIS love. Remember and stand on the truth that deep down your really do know that God is good." - Mike Weaver
