I know not why Godís wondrous grace


I know not why Godís wondrous grace

To me hath been made known

Nor why Ė unworthy as I am

He claimed me for His own


But I know Whom I have believed in;

And am persuaded that He is able to keep that

Which Iíve committed unto Him against that day.


I know not why this saving faith

To me He did impart,

Or how believing in His Word

Wrought peace within my heart


I know not how the spirit moves

Convincing men of sin

Revealing Jesus through the Word

Creating faith in Him


I know not what of good or ill

May be reserved for me

Of weary days or golden days

Before His face I see


I know not when my Lord may come

I know not how nor where

I shall pas the vale of death

O meet Him in the air.
