The future lies unseen ahead,
It holds I know not what;
But still I know I need not dread,
For Jesus faileth not.
I’ll follow Him with rejoicing,
With rejoicing, rejoicing;
I know He safely will lead me
To my eternal home.
Doth He not know what I shall meet
Upon life’s rugged way?
Will He not guide my halting feet,
Lest from the path I stray?
No matter how things look to me,
Nor if they threaten sore;
I know my way prepared shall be,
For Christ leads on before.
The glory of eternal dawn
Shines from His smiling face;
So trusting Him I follow on,
With heart made strong by grace.
