I thought I did what’s right
I thought I had the answers
I thought I chose the surest road
But that road brought me here


So I put up a fight
And told you how to help me
Now just when I have given up
The truth is coming clear

You know better than I
You know the way
I’ve let go the need to know why
For you know better than I


If this has been a test
I cannot see the reason
But maybe knowing I don’t know
Is part of getting through


I try to do what’s best
And faith has made it easy
To see the best thing I can do
Is put my trust in you

For You know better than I
You know the way
I’ve let go the need to know why
For you know better than I

I saw one cloud and thought it was a sky
I saw a bird and thought that I could follow
But it was you who taught that bird to fly
If I let you reach me will you teach me

For You know better than I
You know the way
I’ve let go the need to know why
I’ll take what answers you supply
You know better than I

    Just found out our youngest sister is in stage 3 or 4 of stomach cancer. She knows christ and is at peace. This is her song.

    I have to keep reminding myself; god does know better than i! He has the plan, and the path, and the more i let go, the more he shows me. The more i try to hold on, the more painful it is. I have to let go. More often, more completely.
