God holds the key of all unknown

God holds the key of all unknown,
    And I am glad;
If other hands should hold the key,
Or if He trusted it to me,
    I might be sad.
What if tomorrow’s cares were here,
    Without its rest?
I’d rather He unlocked the day,
And, as the hours swing open, say,
    My will is best.
The very dimness of my sight
    Makes me secure;
For, groping in my misty way,
I feel His hand; I hear Him say,
    My help is sure.
I cannot read His future plans;
    But this I know:
I have the smiling of His face,
And all the refuge of His grace
    While here below.
Enough; this covers all my wants;
    And so I rest;
For what I cannot, He can see,
And in His care I saved shall be,
    Forever blest.

So great to listen to the sweet melodies of this soothing hymn on this platform. I wonder how I landed on it !!

It is my favourite church hymn, though all along I have been blessed by it in Luganda, my mother language. It is an added advantage for me to discover it in the Queen's language. I will share it with my family.

God bless this site!

I remember this lovely hymn and singing as a child!! It is so reassuring to know that my Saviour is in control.

"God holds the key of all unknown..." I sang this song for many years and I still feel it deep in my heart as the best ever. God is aware that my wisdom is foolishness, and thus keeps what belongs to me by Himself, what makes me very happy is that He provides it beat by beat and always it's the best. Hallelujah.

"The very dimness of my sight,makes me secure." We used to sing this hymn in high school and it is still as comforting and reassuring as it was then.

We used to sing this song before we migrated to Australia in 2014. We were overwhelmed with the paperwork and the whole process. Overwhelmed by the unknown: where we would live, whether we would get jobs quickly, whether the kids would like the move and settle in quickly and the list goes on... We migrated in April 2014. I must say it's now April 2016 and indeed He holds the key. Trust in God.

What beautiful memories! We sung this song when I was a second year medical student during a morning worship. At the time I was feeling overwhelmed by the second year exam burden but the words"God holds the key to the unknown" gave fresh hope. I stopped worrying about exams and the wonderful God saw me through. I continue to put all before Him.

I first heard my mother sing this hymn while going about her household chores some 60 something years ago. She had learnt it while a student at a teachers' college. She loved the hymn so much that she got the words written out and framed in her bedroom. I too love the hymn.

I thank the Lord a million times over when it occurred to me to pass it on recently to my daughter who needs its precious words of reassurance. My daughter promptly sent me this web link and it has been sheer bliss listening to it in the last 10 minutes.

I thank God for this piano piece on the internet. It is most soothing. My God will continuously renew the strength of all of you in charge of this website. Amen.

A good friend sent a link to this lovely hymn - exactly just when I needed reassurance.

The words and music fit so well together.

Sometimes, when I am unsure what tomorrow will bring and the future. looks scary-just knowing that God is by my side helps so much. His love is so much greater than any of our fears, and if I look beyond my disappointments, broken dreams and all that makes me afraid and just focus on Jesus, then, I can only be where I am meant to be.

Thank you for the hymn which I had never heard before.
