Representative Text

1 My Father knows just what is best,
Knows what I need, and then the rest
Withholds with His unerring hands;
My Father knows: He understands.

O yes, He knows, my Father knows;
Whate’er my joys, whate’er my woes,
I place myself in His dear hands,
For this I know: He understands.

2 My Father knows just why ’tis best
That I sometimes should find no rest;
Why I am called thro’ trying fires,
Why I’m denied my heart’s desires. [Refrain]

3 My Father knows just when ’tis best
To call me unto heav’nly rest;
For me to cease my labors here,
And dwell within His presence dear. [Refrain]

4 Then, knowing that my Father knows,
I’ll fear no trials here, nor foes;
Whatever comes, whate’er befall,
My comfort is that He knows all. [Refrain]
