305. I Am Not Skilled to Understand

1 I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned;
I only know at His right hand
Is One who is my Savior!

2 I take Him at His word indeed;
“Christ died for sinners,” this I read;
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Savior!

3 That He should leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange? So once did I,
Before I knew my Savior!

4 And O, that He fulfilled may see
The travail of His soul in me,
And with His work contented be,
As I with my dear Savior!

5 Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior!
