GraceNotes: I Don’t Know Why But I Know Who (Sandy Hook)

I DON’T KNOW WHY —- I KNOW WHO
(Based on Ann Voskamp blog 12/19/2012 about the Sandy Hook, CT tragedy)

VERSE 1                         
I don’t know if legs can hold this heavy heart of mine
Or if I have the strength to bend my knees this time       
I don’t know if I’ll ever know, or if my faith can stand not knowing why

VERSE 2             
I don’t know if I can go on living out each day
Or if I can even lift my voice, or bow my head to pray
I don’t know if I’ll ever know, or ever understand the reasons why

CHORUS
And so I fall into, not the arms of why but WHO
And I weep in Your Embrace
I can barely stand, as you offer me your hand
My weakness for Your Grace

VERSE 3             
I don’t know if eyes can take this flood of tears I cry
Or if I still believe, in the one who came to die
I don’t know if I’ll ever know, or if my faith can stand not knowing why

CHORUS
And so I fall into, not the arms of why but WHO
And I weep in Your Embrace
I can barely stand, as you offer me your hand
My weakness for Your Grace

BRIDGE
You become my legs, you are my voice of praise
Your suffering paid for me
So I boldly sing, You are my King of Kings
You are my Prince of Peace

VERSE 4
I don’t know how I could doubt the life you came to give
The love that suffered on the cross, it gives me hope to live
I don’t know if I’ll ever know, or ever understand the reasons why
But I know WHO…. I know WHO…. I know WHO….I know YOU
