God Knoweth

God Knoweth

I know not what awaits,
God kindly veils mine eyes,
And o’er each step of my onward way
He makes new scenes to rise;
And every joy he sends me, comes
A sweet and glad surprise.

Where he may lead I’ll follow,
My trust in Him repose;
And every hour in perfect peace
I’ll sing, He knows, He knows.

One step I see before me,
‘Tis all I need to see,
The light of heaven more brightly shines,
When earth’s illusions flee;
And sweetly through the silence,
came His loving “Follow Me.”

O blissful lack of wisdom,
‘Tis blessed not to know;
He holds me with His own right hand,
And will not let me go,
And lulls my troubled soul to rest
In Him who loves me so.

So on I go not knowing,
I would not if I might;
I’d rather walk in the dark with God
Than go alone in the light;
I’d rather walk by faith with Him
Than go alone by sight.
