The Kry - I Know Everything About You

This song from Canadian band The Kry was a tremendous help and encouragement to me back in the days when I was really just beginning to learn about God's unconditional love.

Some of my favorite lines from the song include:
Bought with a price
Nothing you've done
It's a gift to you
My love is unconditional


Each time you fall
Look to the sky
It won't change My love for you
It won't change My mind

Lift your head up
You will always be Mine
My grace for you
Will last until the end of time


And of course the chorus:

I know everything about you
I know what you say and do
But I still love you
I know everything about you
I know what you're thinking through
But I still love you

My own added thoughts... We humans do seem to feel the need to add "but" in front of God's unconditional "I love you." In other words, we picture God saying, "I know all the things you do, but I love you anyway." Believe it or not, I think this actually sells unconditional love short! I believe that with God, there is no "but." I don't think He loves us "in spite of" the things we do. His love has nothing to do with what we do or don't do.

Our Father loves us because He is love.
