Lyrics

We can only possess what we experience
We can only possess what we experience
Truth, to be understood, must be lived
We can only possess what we experience

There is a difference
A qualitative difference
Between what I know as a fact and what I know as truth
It stands as a great divide
To separate my thinking
From when I'm thinking foolishly and when I've understood

The facts of theology can be altogether cold
Though true in every way
They alone can't change me
Truth is creative, transforming and alive
It's truth that keeps me humble
Saved and set free
It's the truth that keeps me humble
Saved and set free

We can only possess what we experience
We can only possess what we experience

Straight up honesty, that's my obligation
That's the point when I obey the truth
Without hesitation
When faith gains consent of my stubborn will
And makes the irreversible commitment real
To the Jesus of my journey, to the Christ of crucifixion
Resurrection and redemption
To the Father of mercy
To the God of all comfort

Then, and only then
Then, and only then
Then, and only then
Truth begins it's saving and illuminating work within my heart

And not a moment sooner
Not one moment sooner
Not a moment sooner
Not one moment sooner

We can only possess what we experience
We can only possess what we experience
Truth, to be understood, must be lived
We can only possess what we experience

If there be no sympathy, there can be no understanding
You must surrender to the truth to really understand it
If there be no sympathy, there can be no understanding
You must surrender to the truth to really understand it

Whoa, look at me
My opinion slipped out
But I'm under obligation, without hesitation
To speak the truth in love
Speak the truth in love
Somebody said, "Opinion is the queen on the world"
But I believe this goes way beyond opinion
I say, crown this one king
Come on, crown this one king
Come on, crown this one king
Baby, where I come from that's a bold, bold statement
But I ain't no company man
Well, I ain't no company man
No, I ain't no company man
Well, I ain't no company man

You can respect that, can't ya?

We can only possess what we experience
We can only possess what we experience
Truth, to be understood, must be lived
We can only possess what we experience

We can only possess what we experience
We can only possess what we experience
Truth, to be understood, must be lived
We can only possess what we experience

If there be no sympathy, there can be no understanding
You must surrender to the truth, really understand it
If there be no sympathy, there can be no understanding
If there be no sympathy
There can be no, be no, be no understanding
