    You don't know my story
    It is only recorded up in glory
    All the things that I've been through
    Should of left me black and blue

    You can't feel the depth of my pain
    Or know the seasons I had of only rain
    You don't know what God has done for me
    So when you see me in worship let me be

    For you'll never understand my praise
    Or the reason behind the hands I raise
    Or the cause of my holy dance and shout
    You'll never really begin to figure it out

    Just know that my worship is truly for real
    And I need it as much as I need my next meal
    I've been through too much not to give Him his due
    For He brought me out when I didn't have a clue

    Just looking back over my story
    I must give God, almighty, all the glory
    Excuse me if i don't praise the Lord like you do
    But if you knew my story, you'd praise Him too
