Do You Know

by Rob Dilworth © 2016

You think you know the way of things
And feel the pride that knowledge brings.
Your faith resides in facts you know;
Ignoring wisdom’s warns of woe.

So do you truly know?

You think you know of science facts;
The past of man from artifacts.
You place your faith in technical;
In labs and tests so clinical.

But do you truly know?

You think you know of spiritual
But is your faith conceptual?
You struggle with, you find it odd;
The world is here because of God.

So do you truly know?

You think you know the path you’ll take;
You’ll claim a faith for chances sake.
You roll the dice, you’re tempting fate;
You’re asking God if He can wait.

So do you truly know?

The day will come and might be here
When trumpet sound will pierce your ear.
You’ll hear the moans of chances blew
And hear the songs of those He knew.

But did you truly know?

You think you’ll stand; but bow before
As you proclaim allegiance swore.
Our king may have a diff’rent view
As he proclaims, “I never knew”.

So did you truly know?
