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.
