But I Know…by Carl Gooch

But I Know

Small or large, a sin is a sin

A debt owed that will be paid.

The debt, the cost of our sin;

Some may believe but I know,

That Christ alone my debt paid.


Some may say that they believe,

Still they may feel an uncertainty;

That God’s forgiveness they receive.

Some may say believe but I know,

And that doubt does not enter me,


There is no question, not one doubt.

I’m forgiven in Christ inside and out.

Some say they believe, but I know;

My Lord has forgiven me this I know.


None can stand in God’s perfect light

Because we have all sin in His sight.

So God sent His Son our debt to pay,

And on the cross it is done He did say.


There is no question, not one doubt.

I’m forgiven in Christ inside and out.

Some say they believe, but I know;

My Lord has forgiven me this I know.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
