5692 Timothy 1:12CM, with refrain
I KNOW not why God’s wondrous grace
   To me has been made known;
Nor why—unworthy as I am—
    He claimed me for His own.
But ‘I know Whom I have believèd;
and am persuaded that He is able to
keep that which I’ve committed unto
Him against that day.’
2  I know not why this saving faith
    To me He did impart;
Or how believing in His Word
    Wrought peace within my heart.
3  I know not what of good or ill
    May be reserved for me—
Of weary ways or golden days
    Before His face I see.
4  I know not when my Lord may come;
    I know not how, nor where;
If I shall pass the vale of death,
    Or ‘meet Him in the air’.
Daniel Webster Whittle, 1840-1901
