Jantina de Haan went Beyond the Song to ask The Old Paths about the song “Lord Knows.” It is an awesome tune that gets the listener’s fire burning.
“When we heard this song for the first time, we had the same feeling! Wow! What really drew us to pick this song for the album was the theme of God knowing what we are all going through along, with the fun tempo. That first line of, ‘I see you walking down that dead end road,’ brings conviction to those going down that path.
“People all around us are headed down a dead end road, thinking there is no hope. They think they are too far gone for God to intervene and work a miracle. Their ‘heartaches are like a ball and chain,’ is such a good line expressing the
pains of this life. Many people have prayed and prayed for Heaven to move on their behalf and feel that God isn’t there. The song then reminds us about the power of what God can do and what kind of situations He can deliver us from. He delivered the Hebrew three from a fiery furnace, which was seemingly impossible. He knocked down the walls of Jericho. He is all-knowing and is anxiously waiting to help those who are facing the fiery furnace of life’s trials. This song is loaded with truth, but is also a ton of fun to sing! The track turned out great with the help of Crossroads and their great musicians.”
