Known And Loved


Known And Loved

"I heard Dr. Tim Keller once define the gospel as these two tensions held together simultaneously: "fully known and fully loved". I had always hoped this idea would meander its way into a song, and when David and Freddy and I got together at a Common Hymnal writing retreat, it's what we decided to chase. Keller says that to be fully known but not fully loved is rejection, and to be fully loved but not fully known is sentimentality. Only in the gospel are we completely known and completely loved at the same time, and that, well that is heaven.” (Matt Papa)

We’ve been hiding in the shadows

Lost and afraid of you

We’ve been wandering in the darkness

But if we only knew

We are known and loved

We are known and loved by you

You’ve been waiting to show us mercy
Your presence is our home
We’re your children, loved forever
Now every fear is gone

There is no fear anymore, cause all that’s left is mercy
There is no fear in your love, you’re the God of mercy
There is no fear anymore, cause all that’s left is mercy

There is no fear in your love - In your love
