Powerful Words

Recently, I heard this amazing song by Jeremy Camp.  It’s called He Knows.  This song has the most beautiful chorus:

He knows, He knows, every hurt and every sting
He has walked the suffering
He knows, He knows, let your burdens come undone
Lift your eyes up to the One
Who knows. He knows, He knows.

Camp is talking about how Jesus Christ knows and understands everything we go through.  Christ knows the deepest part of us—the part that no one else sees.  Our fears, our thoughts, and even our doubts during the painful times in our lives—Christ is the only one who knows these burdens.  The amazing part is that He understands and identifies with our suffering, because He has suffered.  He came to earth for us, and he walked where we walked.  He became human just like us; thereby, feeling everything we deal with on a daily basis. 

Christ’s love overwhelms me.  The fact that He understands, but more importantly the fact that He willingly went through trials for me, so that He could know my “hurt and every sting.”  How incredible is that? God’s love for me takes my breath away, because it is a love that I can barely comprehend.  How could anyone love me like that?  How could anyone be willing to identify with me?  Christ chose to identify with me, so that He could display His great love for me. 

Camp’s words throughout this song are just so moving, and I know that God will use his words to touch the hearts of many.  I just hope and pray that God can use my written and spoken words like that.   


  1. That is my prayer, too, as a writer--to be a ministry to people. I don't think I've heard this song yet, but I'll have to give a listen now. Thank you for sharing these thoughts and these lyrics!
