To Know You

"To Know You"
(Words by Nichole Nordeman/Music by Nichole Nordeman & Mark Hammond)

It’s well past midnight - And I’m awake with questions that won’t - Wait for daylight -
Separating fact from my imaginary fiction - On this shelf of my conviction - I need to find a place
- Where You and I can come face to face.

Thomas needed - Proof that You had really risen - Undefeated - When he placed his fingers -
Where the nails once broke your skin - Did his faith finally begin? - I’ve lied if I’ve denied - The
common ground I’ve shared with him.

And I, I really want to know You - I want to make each day - A different way that I can show
You how - I really want to love You - Be patient with my doubt - I’m just trying to figure out
Your will - And I really want to know You still.

Nicodemus - Could not understand how You could - Truly free us - He struggled with the image
- of a grown man born again - We might have been good friends - Cuz sometimes I still question,
too - How easily we come to You.

No more camping on the porch of indecision - No more sleeping under stars of apathy - And it
might be easier to dream - But dreamin’s not for me.

And I, I really want to know You - I want to make each day - A different way that I can show
You how - I really want to love You - Be patient with my doubt - I’m just trying to figure out
Your will - And I really want to know You still.
