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.”

I like this Hymn, It describes how our salvation in Jesus Christ is a supernatural work of God. It it not something that man has done, but God alone! Lesly Stilwell, what stops you from becoming a Christian?

Thank you for making this available to all who need encouragement. When I am weak, then He is strong. I praise the God of the Bible Who recorded this and other "great and precious promises" through mortal men like Paul and Peter and all the prophets and apostles.
