I’ve sought the Father
And the battle’s brought me to my knees

But I know the shame
And it knows me
Oh, it knows me

Crying out for hope
Came the gospel memory
He bore my pain
And He knows me
Praise God, He knows me

Rest my soul, grace set me free
He knows my sins, yet He loves me
And He knows what I will yet be
