THIS I KNOW







"The Lord knowth them that are His" (11 Timothy 2:19)









I do not know what next may come
Across my pilgrim way,
I do not know tomorrow's road
Nor see beyond today,
But this I know- My Savior knows
The path I cannot see,
And I can trust His Wounded hand
To guild and care for me.

I do not know what may befall
Of sunshine or of rain,
I do not know what may be mine
Of pleasure or of pain.
But This I know - My Savior knows,
And whatsoe'er  it will be,
Still I can trust His Love to give
What will be best for me.

I do not know what still waits
Or what the marrow brings,
But with the glad salute of faith
I hail its opening wings!
For this I know - That in My Lord
Shall all my needs be met,
And I can trust the heart of Him
Who has not failed me yet.
