362. I Know Whom I Have Believed

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.

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.”

2 I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart;
Nor how believing in His Word
Wrought peace within my heart. [Refrain]

3 I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin;
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him. [Refrain]

4 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." [Refrain]
