87. 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. [Chorus]

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

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. [Chorus]

5 I know not when my Lord may come -
At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I'll walk the vale with Him
Or meet Him in the air. [Chorus]
