My Heart Already Knows

(Rich Mullins, Rick Elias & Mark Robertson)
as recorded by The Ragamuffin Band on the album Prayers of a Ragamuffin

With your hand you wrote upon my heart
What my head has yet to believe
And with your light you shine a path
That my eyes can barely see
Though it's right in front of me

And with your mercy you have closed the book
My guilty conscience opens up to read
And though your footprints mark the trail
That I stray from constantly
Though it's right in front of me
(You know it's right in front of me)

But if I ever learn what my heart already knows
And I feel the hurt that I wear on my sleeve
With a laughter that burns inside my soul
Let the child come alive and drive away these ghosts
You know my head ain't even close
To what my heart already knows

All my life I've tried to find it
Searching for a reason and a rhyme
Though You've always led the way
I will still get lost sometimes
How could I be so blind?
How could I be so blind?

And though my father he's the richest king
I sit alone within my poverty
and though your light still shines a path
that my eyes can barely see
though it's right in front of me
(Right in front of me)

But if I ever learn what my heart already knows
And I feel the hurt that I wear on my sleeve
With a laughter that burns inside my soul
Let the child come alive and drive away these ghosts
You know my head ain't even close
To what my heart already knows

Lord I'm asking for this sign
Light my heart up with my mind

But if I ever learn what my heart already knows
And I feel the hurt that I wear on my sleeve
With a laughter that burns inside my soul
Let the child come alive and drive away these ghosts
You know my head ain't even close
To what my heart already knows

But if I ever learn what my heart already knows
And I feel the hurt that I wear on my sleeve
With a laughter that burns inside my soul
Let the child come alive and drive away these ghosts
You know my head ain't even close
To what my heart already knows
