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.

I was also really touched by this song, "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. 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." - I Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written,"Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard and which have not come up in man's heart; things which God has prepared for those who love Him." Amen! :)

I first enjoyed this hymn when I was about to graduate from UT at a graduation meeting. O Lord may this hymn govern the rest of my life. I know not what awaits me but the Lord always takes care of us in the best way!
