What Do I Know of Holy?

I am not sure if y’all have heard the song, “What Do I Know of Holy?“, but I love it. Every time I hear it, the desire to know more of God is completely refreshed within me. I highly encourage y’all to listen to it!

The craving for more of God is very prominent in my life. My relationship with Him has grown tremendously because of that desire. But, this song always humbles me with the knowledge that, in comparison to all there is to know of God, I know practically nothing. My walk with Him is a drop in the bucket against what it could be (not to downplay what it is). This song always makes me think, “What do I know of Holy?” There is so, so, SO much more room to grow in Him! What do we even know of Holy?

Anyway, I have written the lyrics out below, and I hope they encourage you as they have me. 😉

What Do I Know of Holy?

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?

  1. I absolutely love this song! Every time I hear it makes me stop and think, “What do I really know of God? Yes I read the Bible, but do I truly know God?”
