I Know


‘Smile! God loves you’ always turned me off

I found it too easy and so trite

In the face of the suffering

That people bear each day

This happy phrase annoyed me

Go! Go away!


But being told ‘God knows you’

That had me intrigued

It’s lovely to be known

I do not feel deceived


And knowing yes is loving

And understanding all

Better than I know myself

Seeing when I fall


Knowing my inmost heart and mind

This knowledge yes is love

And I have lived in knowing this

I trust this God above
