Full Text

1 I cannot see, with my small human sight,
Why God should lead this way or that for me;
I only know He saith, “Child, follow me”;
But I can trust, But I can trust!

2 I know not why my path should be at times
So straitly hedged, so strangely barred before;
I only know God could keep wide the door,
And I can trust, And I can trust!

3 I often wonder, as with trembling hand
I cast the seed along the furrowed ground,
If ripened fruit for God will there be found;
But I can trust, But I can trust!

4 I cannot know why suddenly the storm
Should rage so fiercely ‘round me in its wrath;
But this I know, God watches all my path,
And I can trust, And I can trust!

5 I may not draw aside the mystic veil
That hides the unknown future from my sight;
Nor know if for me waits the dark or light;
But I can trust, But I can trust!
