Lyrics

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.

Refrain

But I know whom I have be­liev­èd,
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.

Refrain

I know not how the Spi­rit moves,
Convincing us of sin,
Revealing Je­sus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him.

Refrain

I know not what of good or ill
May be re­served for me,
Of wea­ry ways or gold­en days,
Before His face I see.

Refrain

I know not when my Lord may come,
At night or noon­day fair,
Nor if I walk the vale with Him,
Or meet Him in the air.
