“I Want To Know You”
Words and Music by Ryan Newcomb

Looking out from a window on the city of Rome,
Paul can’t help but think of where he’s been,
From Tarsus to Israel, across the great sea,
And how he never made it to Spain,
But in his heart he says, “Rejoice; again I say rejoice,”
As the silence is broken by this old man’s voice,

I want to know You,
For who You truly are,
To learn what it meant for You to suffer,
And to walk to the cross,
I want the power that raised You from the grave,
To work in me just the same,
I want to know You,
I want to know You,

I look out my window as the cars pass me by,
It’s ten in the morning, and I am headed home,
My thoughts turn to every time I’ve ever let You down,
And everything that I have ever done wrong,
But in my heart I whisper, “Rejoice; again I say rejoice,”
As the silence is broken by my weary voice,

I want to know You,
For who You truly are,
To learn what it meant for You to suffer,
And to walk to the cross,
I want the power that raised You from the grave,
To work in me just the same,
I want to know You,

‘Cause there’s so much more to attain,
As I run this race,
To be who You want me to be,
Lord, help me leave behind,
All of those selfish times,
To find all that You have for me,

I want to know You,
For who You truly are,
To learn what it meant for You to suffer,
And to walk to the cross,
I want the power that raised You from the grave,
To work in me just the same,
I want to know You,
I want to know You,

I want to know You,
I want to know You.
