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 Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him.
I know not when my Lord may come,
At night or noon-day fair,
Nor if I'll walk the vale with Him
Or "meet Him in the air."
