This song goes straight to the heart! The conviction and realization message is captured by the honest lyrics of a heart that is broken and desirous of reconnecting with God.


I should have trusted You Lord
I should have leaned on You more
When all my life was unclear
You weren't the voice in my ear
I realize I should have trusted You Lord

I should have given You time
I should have laid it on the line
Not hoping in the word of another
Nor given to the counsel of others
I realize I should have trusted You Lord

If I'd trusted You Lord, all my shackles and chains
Would be broken at the sound of Your name
If I'd trusted You Lord, all my doubts and my fears
Would no longer remain
If I'd trusted You Lord, my soul would take to the skies
I'd be free as You'd want me to be
I realize, Lord

So I realize-----
And I realize-----
Oh I realize, Lord
