(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
I know not why God’s wondrous grace To me He hath made known,
Nor why, Unworthy, Christ in love Redeemed me for His own.
But “I know whom I have believed, And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed Unto Him against that Day.”
I know not how this saving faith To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His Word Wrought peace within my heart.
I know not how the Spirity moves, Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus thru the Word, Creating faith in Him.
I know not what of good or ill May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days Before His face I see.
I know not when my Lord may come – At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I’ll walk the vale with Him Or meet Him in the air.
