The Slightest Glimpse of Him

On the bus, while traveling through Israel, a lady on our trip mentioned that a certain song had come into her mind, “What Do I Know of Holy” by Addison Road. She said that being in Israel had made her feel as if she had indeed made God too small. As I heard that song just earlier today, it triggered my memory of that and how appropriate the song seemed while traveling through Israel – the land the Lord reserved from His people. The land that the Son of God was born into and walked through. The place where the people welcomed Him and crucified Him. Jerusalem, the city that Jesus humbly came to the first time and will again return to with reigning power.

Lord, I have been flippant and have made you too small in my life. Lord, what do I know of Your holiness? If You touched my face, would I know You? If you looked into my eyes, could I behold You?

Here are the lyrics to the song, “What Do I Know of Holy” by Addison Road

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)
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?

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)
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?

(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 “its” 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)
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?
