407. I Know Whom I Have Believed

1 I know not why God's wondrous grace
to me he has made known,
nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
redeemed me for his own.

Refrain:
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."

2 I know not how this saving faith
to me he did impart,
nor how believing in his Word
wrought peace within my heart. [Refrain]

3 I know not how the Spirit moves,
convincing me of sin,
revealing Jesus through the Word,
creating faith in him. [Refrain]

4 I know not when my Lord may come,
at night or noonday fair,
nor if I'll walk the vale with him,
or meet him in the air. [Refrain]
