I know not why God’s wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own.
But “I know Whom I have believed
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him against that day.”
I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His word
Wrought peace within my heart.
I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him.
I know not what of good or ill
May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days,
Before His face I see.
I know not when my Lord may come,
At night or noon-day fair,
Nor if I’ll walk the vale with Him,
Or “meet Him in the air.”
A hymn that talks of God's grace, and the mysteries of faith.
I especially like the line "Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own."
I know that there are many reasons why I'm unworthy of God's love and Christ's redemption - but I also "Know whom I've believed" - and I know that He loves me despite everything - and He's redeemed me for his own. Something I often need to remind myself of.
I may not know when my Lord will come, but I know that he will come, and He'll take me home.
