God Knows You've Tried
Parody of "Slide" by The Goo Goo Dolls
(Hebrews 4:15, 6:9-10; Romans 7:15-8:2, Philippians 1:6, Proverbs 28:13, Lamentations 3:22-23)

Hebrews 6:10 it's right here the thing to calm your fears
And give you inner strength if you've been stumblin'
Do you take off on your own
And wonder when He'll stop forgiving all your faults?

God won't forsake you where you are
He completes anything He starts
And God knows you've tried
Yeah, because He lives inside

Though your life seems unfulfilled
The King's still on the throne, your Father didn't walk
He won't disown you
Go to Romans 7, bro, He sees your inner man
There's nothing Christ can't change
Just give Him time here

God won't forsake you where you are
He completes anything He starts
And God knows you've tried
Yeah, because He lives inside

And Christ knows everything you ever did to feed His sheep
Do you think it counts for nothing at all?
No way
The grace of God's abounding
Though you feel you've gone too far it's not so far that you will fall
From grace
You're gonna get carried somewhere safe

LEAD

And Christ knows everything you ever did to feed His sheep
Do you think it counts for nothing at all?
No way
The grace of God's abounding
When you feel you've gone too far it's not so far that you will fall
From grace
You're gonna get carried somewhere safe

God won't forsake you where you are
(I'd read Philippians 1:6)

And Christ knows everything you ever did to feed His sheep
Do you think that counts for nothing at all?
Yes, Christ knows everything you've done and everything you'll do
He's inside of you, I knew what you've tried to do is proof
And Christ will never, never, never, never run away

Hebrews 6:9-10
But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things
that accompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way. For God is not
unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His
name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints.
