How can we discover a deeper love

Until we first encounter rejection?

How can we appreciate true friendships

Until we’ve been denied love and affection?

How do we know we’re truly lost

Until we’re truly found?

How do we discover true freedom indeed

Until at first we’re bound?

How can we know we’re correct

Until we’ve been wrong for so long?

How can we discover the absolute truth

Until being deceived all along?

How can we know darkness from light

Until God opens our eyes,

And our mask no longer is used to disguise

So we discern the truth from lies?

How do we know we’re hypocrites

Until exposed by God’s word?

How can we find true lasting peace

In a world so confused and absurd?

How can we know we’re depraved

Until compared to God’s glory?

And how can we speak the godly truth

Until we reject all fabricated stories?

How can we express true motives

Until our heart is changed?

How can we learn to be selfless

Until pride no longer remains?

How can we really truly know

That we love God with our heart,

Until we’re born again by His incorruptible seed

And are truly set apart?

How can we learn to truly forgive

Until we know we’ve been forgiven?

How do we know our faith is genuine

Until we believe that Christ has risen?

How can we be absolutely sure

That when our final breath arrives

That we’ll spend eternity with our maker

Since our soul remains alive?

Our answer is always Jesus Christ

And that’s how we can be sure;

He reveals absolute truths indeed

And has the key to heaven’s door.

He alone can make us worthy

Since our nature is tainted with sin,

And He alone paid the ultimate price

To save our soul within.
