Confidence in Christ

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.
 
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 us 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 noonday fair,

Nor if I walk the vale with Him,

Or meet Him in the air.
 
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.
 
-Daniel W. Whittle, Gospel Hymns No. 4, 1883.
 
“…for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” 2 Timothy 1:12 KJV
