562 Knowing Your Own Thoughts and Perspectives Is Key

Chorus

Knowing yourself means knowing what things

in your thoughts and views

go against God and do not fit with or possess the truth.


Verse 1

Things like human arrogance,

self-righteousness and deception

are the corrupt dispositions

that are easy to recognize.

All are deceitful and arrogant,

though to varying degrees.


Chorus

Knowing yourself means knowing what things

in your thoughts and views

go against God and do not fit with or possess the truth.


Bridge

It’s easier to know your dispositions

than it is to know your views and thoughts.

These are deep-rooted.


Verse 2

Your behavior may change slightly,

but there’s still much of your thinking,

views, education and culture

that is in conflict with God,

and which you’ve not unearthed yet.

This is where your fight with God starts.


Chorus

Knowing yourself means knowing what things

in your thoughts and views

go against God and do not fit with or possess the truth.
