I know not why God's wondrous grace

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.
  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."
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 men 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 noon-day fair,
Nor if I'll walk the vale with Him,
  Or "meet Him in the air."

One thing I like about being in a religion is so that I can listen to such magnificent songs including this one. I'm not a Christian, but I still maintain my theistic belief and am grateful for all the positive things God had given to my friends and I. May all believers be blessed by our Creator Himself.

What a beautiful song, and it's so true. We can't explain why God loves us; we just know that He does by His grace and mercy. I'm grateful for conviction by the Holy Ghost and salvation through Jesus! How wonderful that the chorus comes straight from the King James Version of the Bible!

Indeed I know whom we have prayed to that He will answer all our prayers in Jesus Name. Jesus Never Fails. He will answer, answer every prayers. Go to Him in Faith believing, He will answer every prayers. Amen. Thanks for uploading this song.

This song means so much to my mother, she would like it sang at her funeral, whenever that might be. She currently is 93, in fantastic health, and loves the Lord very much.

As a POW during the Civil War, Daniel Whittle began reading the New Testament his mother had given him as he marched off to war, and he committed his life to Jesus Christ.

After the war, Whittle was promoted to the rank of major and then became a successful businessman. In 1873 he began preaching in evangelistic services, and for a quarter-century he led revivals throughout the United States. He also encouraged some of the leading songwriters of his time and wrote many hymns himself, including "Showers of Blessing" and "Moment by Moment." Whittle penned this hymn in 1883, perhaps thinking back to questions he had asked during his imprisonment. - Great Songs of Faith by Brown & Norton
