07. Beautiful Mystery

Back Home
by Caedmon's Call



 

I tried to know
Every mystery
Soon realized, no
It was too much for me

'Cause most things true
Are simple and complex
So it is with You
What else should I expect

You suffer the seeker
In You they abide

You are to me
A beautiful mystery
You are to me
A Servant and a King
You're a beautiful mystery

You're like the water
I can feel but not grasp
Still You say all I've gotta do
Is seek and knock and ask

You are to the river
What hems it in and sets it free

The truth is a river
Where the strong can swim down deep
The weak and the broken
Can walk across so easily

words and music by Aaron Tate, Derek Webb and Cliff Young

Behind the Song:
"The last few decades of liberal philosophy have convinced us, even Christians, that truth is something we may interpret or fashion according to our own observations. The effects of this sweeping, post-modern epidemic may have actually infected our modern inferences of scripture. When it comes to comprehending who Jesus is physically and metaphysically, we must openly embrace the notion that truth is something that God himself fashioned and instituted. Secondly, it is He alone who sustains the fabric of the absolute. This throws us upon the mercy of His understanding and shows us the beauty of never being able to grasp the complexities of His character. We are prompted to acknowledge the magnificent radiance and beauty of His truth." - Joshua Moore (Caedmon's Call)
