how would i know lyrics – kathy troccoli

if it wasn’t for the times that i was down
if it wasn’t for the times that i was bound
for all the times that i wondered
how i would ever make it through
all of the times that i couldn’t see my way
and i had to turn to you

how would i know you could deliver
how would i know you could set free
if there had never been a battle
how would i know the victory
how would i know you could be faithful
to meet all of my needs
lord i appreciate the hard times
otherwise how would i know

i remember all the times i had to cry
and at the time all i could do was wonder why
why would a god so kind and loving
allow me to go through all this pain
if i could see into the future
then i would know the joy i’d gain

but how would i know you could deliver
how would i know you could set free
if there had never been a battle
how would i know the victory
how would i know you could be faithful
to meet all of my needs
lord i appreciate the hard times
otherwise how would i know

how would i know that you could
make a way out of no way
how would i know if i never had a need
brother, i know what you’re goin’ through
sister, i know ’cause i’ve been in your shoes
but i can truly say that i know what god can do

how would i know you could deliver
how would i know you could set free
if there had never been a battle
how would i know the victory
how would i know you could be faithful
to meet all of my needs
lord i appreciate the hard times
otherwise how would i know
otherwise how would i know

how would i know you could set free
how would i know you deliver me
how would i know you could make a way
how would i know you could meet my needs
how would i know
how would i know
i wouldn’t have known
i wouldn’t have known
