I Do Not Know

by Unknown Author

I Do Not Know

I do not know what next may come

Across my pilgrim way;

I do not know tomorrow's road,

Nor see beyond today.

But this I know: my Savior knows

The path I cannot see,

And I can trust His wounded hand

To guide and care for me.

I do not know what may befall

Of sunshine or of rain;

I do not know what may be mine

Of pleasure or of pain.

But this I know: my Savior knows

And whatsoe'er it be,

Still I can trust His love to give

What will be best for me.

I do not know what still awaits

Or what the future brings;

But with the glad salute of faith

I hail its opening wings!

For this I know: that in my Lord

Shall all my needs be met,

And I can trust the heart of Him

Who has not failed me yet.
