Representative Text

1 I cannot always see the way that leads to heights above;
I sometimes quite forget He leads me on with hands of love;
But yet I know the path must lead me to Immanuel’s land,
And when I reach life’s summit I shall know and understand;
And when I reach life’s summit I shall know and understand.

2 I cannot always trace the onward course my ship must take;
But, looking backward, I behold afar its shining wake,
Illumined with God’s light of love, and so I onward go,
In perfect trust that He who holds the helm the course must know;
In perfect trust that He who holds the helm the course must know.

3 I cannot always know and understand the Master’s rule;
I cannot always do the tasks He gives in life’s hard school;
But I am learning with His help to solve them one by one,
And, when I cannot understand, to say, “Thy will be done;”
And, when I cannot understand, to say, “Thy will be done.”
