If you only knew

Post by Guest » Fri Nov 26, 2010 12:36 pm

I wrote this poem/song in 1985 after the death of a friend from high school--it has been a miracle song for so many---It's called " If You Knew ".

If you knew where I am standing
If you could see the sights I see
If you could here the angels singing
the songs they sing, eternally
If you knew the One I'm holding
could see the smile He smiles at me
If you knew where I am resting
You would not cry for me

(chorus)
I'm resting in the precious arms of Jesus
No other place would I rather be
So if you shed a tear, please don't shed it for me
If you knew where I am resting
You would not cry for me

"I know you're confused about me leaving you so soon
but I'll be with you again--maybe morning night or noon
so I'll save a place for you--right beside the crystal sea
If you knew where my mansion's standing
You would not cry for me
Steven W. Perry--copyright 1986

this is If you only knew by Randy travis Beautiful song


By my grandfather's bed, my mother is reading,
Psalm 62, God is our refuge,
My grandfather stirs, could it be,
He is waking, one final time,
He has something to say,

If you only knew what lies awaiting
If you could only see what I can see
If you could only hear the music playing
The angels singing sweet victory
Oh, if you only knew, if you only knew,
How much he loves you

By my grandfather's bed, my mother is broken,
Psalm 17, O God I call on you,
She doesn't want to hear
Any words about leaving
My grandfather says
"Fear not, this is my time,
And into his presence I'll fly"

If you only knew what lies awainting
If you could only see what I can see
If you could only hear the music playing
The angels singing sweet victory
Oh, if you only knew, if you only knew,
How much he loves you

Thank you so very much, yes that is the song, If you only knew! God bless each and everyone of you! Do you happen to know who wrote it? I'm trying to find the piano music for it.

Yes, it IS a beautiful song. The FULL song performed is on youtube under "If You Only Knew - Randy Travis" . I know, because I tried singing along with it, but couldn't get through it without "tearing up". I couldn't find the chords on chordie or e-chords, but found the lyrics on www.music-lyrics-chord.com and the first of seven sheet music pages free [fully downloadable/printable for $5.25] at www.musicnotes.com . I hope this helps. God Bless,

The Inspirations version was written by Craig Edwards I think.
