1 I may not know the reason why
Dark clouds so often veil the sky,
But tho' my sea be smooth or rough
The Lord knows why, and that's enough.
Oh, yes, He knows, the Lord knows why!
These things are ordered on high;
And tho' dark clouds may hide the sun,
The Lord knows why--His will be done.
2 I may not know why I am led,
So often in the paths I dread,
But, trusting Him I'll press my way;
The Lord knows why--I will obey. [Chorus]
3 I may not know why death should come
To take the dear ones from my home,
But, tho' mine eyes with tears be dim,
The Lord know why--I'll trust in Him. [Chorus]
4 So, tho' I may not understand
The leadings of my Father's hand,
I know to all He has the key,--
He understands each mystery. [Chorus]
