I Know Whom I Have Believed, #5

Lyrics

Verse 1
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.

Chorus
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.”

Verse 2
I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His word
Wrought peace within my heart.

Verse 3
I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the word,
Creating faith in Him.

Verse 4
I know not what of good or ill
May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days,
Before His face I see.

Verse 5
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.”
