Representative Text

1 I do not know why Jesus came
To walk with men on earth;
I only know that thro’ His love
My soul has had new birth.

Refrain:
The story never can be told,
In earth or heav’n above,
The story never can be told,
The story of His love.

2 I do not know why for my sake
He suffered toil and pain;
I only know that His dear blood
Shall cleanse me from all stain. [Refrain]

3 I do not know why He should drink
The wormwood and the gall;
I only know He is my King,
And will not let me fall. [Refrain]

4 I do not know why He should care
For such a one as I;
I only know that ‘twas for me
He was content to die. [Refrain]
