This I know

Representative Text

1 I cannot tell you how my Saviour saves
And whiter makes me than the snow,
Nor how nor why He all my sins forgives,
But He has done it, this I know.

O praise His name, for this I know,
He whiter makes me than the snow;
And though I cannot tell you how nor why,
He fully saves me, this I know.

2 I cannot tell you how the work was wrought
Which took away my heart of stone
And gave me in its stead a heart of flesh,
But this I know, the work is done. [Chorus]

3 I cannot tell you how His wondrous touch
Should sight and healing bring to me,
But this I know, whereas I once was blind,
The scales hare fallen, now I see. [Chorus]

4 I cannot tell you why the King of kings
Should care for one so weak as I,
Yet this I know, that He doth now prepare
For me, a mansion in the sky. [Chorus]
