Addison Road - What Do I Know Of Holy Lyrics




I made You promises a thousand times
I tried to hear from Heaven
But I talked the whole time
I think I made You too small
I never feared You at all No
If You touched my face would I know You?
Looked into my eyes could I behold You?

[CHORUS]
So What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
So What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

I guess I thought that I had figured You out
I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about
How You were mighty to save
Those were only empty words on a page
Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be
The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees

[CHORUS]
So What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
So What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

[CHORUS 2]
What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame?
And a God who gave life it's name?
What do I know of Holy?
Of the One who the angels praise?
All creation knows Your name
On earth and heaven above
What do I know of this love?

[CHORUS]
So What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

What do I know of Holy?
What do I know of Holy?

    I dedicated so many years to philosophy and thinking about God. This song reminded me of the wondrous fact that I have not even scratched the surface.

  6. Doug Belt

    I use this song to help me refocus on God when the world is screaming at me, it hasn't failed me yet. Thank you.

  7. Rookie Tech

    I wish the CCM would put out more songs like this one! A lot of the stuff today doesn’t have the move of God on it. This is still one of my favorites! What do I know of Holy? What a thought! And what a God!!!

  8. April Stodghill

    I posted this on Facebook. This song COMPLETELY changed my life. Thank you so much!

    Most of you know I have Bipolar Disorder. What a lot of you don’t know is that I was in an abusive marriage for many years. I was told I was crazy, couldn’t remember things, called derogatory names, even physical abuse - and in the height of my depression, gaslighted to no end. I believed every lie. I was in another state, completely isolated from my family and support system. I would never leave due to my fear and it is then I turned to God. He was my last option but my only option. Upon hearing this song, I was literally brought to my knees - and when I say literally - I mean my knees hit the floor in reverence and humility. God spoke to me that day and I was able to escape. I have been out for 7 years now. Trying to leave - well, I had been trying to do it on my OWN. Once I allowed God to take his rightful place in my heart once again, I was able to escape. I put God in a box even though I was raised in church and have been a Christian since I was 10. I knew the Bible, I knew all the stories, I knew how to lead others to Him but I felt God wasn’t present throughout all the abuse. I thought he was too small. God not only showed me his presence through this song, but made me realize the true Holiness of our God. Once I surrendered to his Holiness and and admitted I was completely defeated in my situation, it was then that His grace covered me and I have been out for 7 years. Glory be to God!

  16. Anticonformity

    touches my whole heart every time I hear it

  17. Frankie Morales

    I've always had a fascination with Angels and Archangels specifically through scripture a single Angel battled 200000 men into submission and Archangels are above them they are powerful warriors who are beyond my comprehension to know that even they praise God speaks volumes of God's power

  18. Ashley Duke

    ❤❤❤❤

  19. Amy McCoy

    I have found this song to be one of the best to turn my focus back on the One who made me and has a purpose for me being here doing what I'm doing and going through what I'm going through.

    Arguably the most honest lyrics I've ever heard in a CCM song.... As an atheist I find this kind of honesty refreshing.

    Constance Rogers

    I guess people are surprised that an atheist is floating around listening to Christian music. This is a deep song that takes a true believer to admit that they have been in this place. What we do know is that we need more of Him.

    misterwizzerd

    +Constance Rogers
    I get the surprise, but it should be no surprise that many atheists were once believers. I loved the honesty of this song as a believer and still love it. Most Christians like songs and artists that don't line up with their beliefs. Likewise there are plenty of atheists with an appreciation for some Christian artists.
    It's not a music thing but even the late great atheist Christopher Hitchens considered C.S. Lewis one of his literary heroes....
    Anyway, it's a pretty song that I love regardless of my beliefs or the beliefs of Addison Road.

    Danny Adams

    Glad your listening in misterwiz. There are many such songs but it should be noted that some songs are meant for church and the words are always in the affirmative. This is an introspective song. My daughter just text me that her new favorite even though it is a couple years old. I agree it is nice. Dido on your comment on C.S. Lewis.

    "And you, mr. smartypants, don't front... maybe we don't know as much as we think we do... Like you never took your world view to its furthest conclusions? That if human behavior is just what protoplasm does at this temperature, then there's no need for humanitarian efforts, it's just the universe weeding out bad genes. Fingernails on chalkboard words, ain't they?" ~Propaganda

    Aaron Malsbury

    @misterwizzerd I know I could be wrong, but I think you hang on to this song, because even though your head is saying, "There is no God" and all the logic and culture is pulling at you, but there is something in your heart, something where you once felt God that wants to still believe. There is a war. it's not a physical one. I doubt every once in a while, but I read the Proverbs and read about how the knowledge of the world leads to what? What hope is there out there. I was just thinking the other day, how on earth could all this intricate display of life, we can't even truly understand the soul; so how can it just be an accident or by some kind of big bang. I understand it takes a lot of hard faith to follow God when there is so much in the world screaming against Him, but I choose to believe in hope. I don't normally respond to 3 year old posts or posts in the first place, but something inside me felt like I should write this. Once again maybe I'm wrong, but if I never said anything then I would be at fault for not speaking what I feel and I think you could appreciate that faith or no faith.

    This got me through two years of trying to conceive and a miscarriage

    V.L. Jennings

    <3 Aww Thank you @Ent All!
    Fortunately I discovered what my issues where. I have scoliosis (my spine isn't straight) and, according to my chiropractor, there were nerves in my lower back being compressed enough that it was causing dysfunction in my lower organs. Two months of going for adjustments three times a week and I was able to conceive- which was my first miscarriage. Two months later I conceived again- which is my now 3yr old ;)

    Without God working through my chiropractor's hands I truly believe my body wouldn't have been able to carry a pregnancy.

    V.L. Jennings

    Aww thank you very much! <3 Merry Christmas!
