I know not what awaits me

1
I know not what awaits me,
  God kindly veils my eyes,
And o'er each step of my onward way
  He makes new scenes to rise;
And every joy He sends me comes
  A sweet and glad surprise.
  Where He may lead I'll follow,
  My trust in Him repose;
And every hour in perfect peace,
  I'll sing, "He knows, He knows";
And every hour in perfect peace,
  I'll sing, "He knows, He knows."
2
One step I see before me,
  'Tis all I need to see,
The light of heaven more brightly shines
  When earth's illusions flee;
And sweetly through the silence comes,
  His loving, "Trust in Me!"
3
Oh, blissful lack of wisdom,
  'Tis blessed not to know;
He holds me with His own right hand,
  And will not let me go,
And lulls my troubled soul to rest
  In Him who loves me so.
4
So on I go not knowing;
  I would not if I might;
I'd rather walk in the dark with God
  Than go alone in the light;
I'd rather walk by faith with Him
  Than go alone by sight.

Amen! How sweet this walk of faith is. I keep wanting to know what is ahead, but the Lord would only show me one step before me. Really this is all I need to see because I'd rather walk by faith with Him than go alone by sight. Lord, I consecrate myself to You that where You may lead I will follow. Amen!

is song is so sweet. I especially like the lines "And sweetly through the silence comes His loving 'trust in Me'" as well as "He holds me with His own right hand and will not let me go, and lulls my troubled soul to rest In Him who loves me so." What a wonderful saviour and shepherd we have. We can just trust in the Lord, because although we do not know, He knows! and He will give us rest in the night. Praise the Lord!

Thank You Lord for loving us and never letting us go.

This hymn set me free today. Sometimes when we consider our future, we can become anxious and confused and at the same time reason with God. We do not know what is best for us. He knows, He always does. All I need to see is one step before me and all I need to hear is His voice...His loving, "Trust in Me!" Lord Jesus I love You.

I heard this song this past spring, and the Lord touched my heart to memorize it for a friend who has been imprisoned as an innocent man. Not having understanding why the Lord would allow one of His own to experience such a suffering, the words brought such light and comfort, especially verse 3, "Oh, blissful lack of wisdom, 'tis blessed not to know" and verse 4, "I'd rather walk in the dark with God than go alone in the light". Our trust finds its repose in Him.

Recently I was having a hard day at school and the Lord reminded me of this song:

"I know not what awaits me, God kindly veils my eyes, and o'er each step on my onward way He makes new scenes to rise; And every joy He sends me comes a sweet and glad surprise. ... And every hour in perfect peace, I'll sing 'He knows, He knows'".

It is so sweet that we don't know what lies ahead. He is the best Shepherd and all we need to do is to trust and follow this wonderful One.
