God Knows

God knows the times I've gone astray
And wandered from His caring arms
He knows the times I've gone my way
And brought myself to trouble and harm

He knows the times my selfish heart
Thinks of myself and not of the lost
He knows the times I forget His word
Forsaking prayer, not counting the cost

He knows the times my temper flares
The words in anger I hastily speak
He knows the times I don't forgive
And bitterness makes my spirit weak

He knows the times My heart grows cold
And I cannot praise his glorious name
He knows the times I forget what love
Cost Him when Salvation came

He knows all this! I cannot hide
My sin and shame from His holy face
Yet although he knows He loves me still
And pardons me with his loving grace
