He Gave Even Though He Knew Us
I had no worth when my Lord saved me from my sin.
He knew me before and he knows me now. He even sees within.
Days come and then it the next, yet he is there to rescue us.
He's the one and only savior who came for all, he is Jesus.
He gave his life for you and I, even though he knew us by name.
The cross was his goal to free us from sin and today he is ever the same.
He gave it all, the big and the small on the old rugged tree.
He gave even though he knew us and he did it for just for you and me.
Today things are different even though he knew us before.
His arms of love are wide open to bring us near from afar.
Our Lord knows us by name and he loves us all the same.
I'm so grateful that he gave himself and he knows me by name.
He knew me and what I was and he loved me.
I'm so glad He gave even though he knew me.
