I know not what awaits me (Alternate)

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 me I’ll follow,
  My trust in Him repose;
And every hour in perfect peace,
  I’ll sing, “He knows, He knows”,
  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 do appreciate saints' experience of the Lord of trusting Him and following Him not knowing, as Abraham did. Thru this hymn I could set my way to learn these experiences. It's so precious. Till this time of my life (35) I mostly did things with thorough planning and analyzing as Paul "counted all things as loss" (Phil. 3:7-8). He has counted (compared, calculated), he was sober in those things, leaving, repudiating religious and all other things as nothing, dogs' food.

But here goes the other dimension of knowing Christ, where I go in the light, that light being God Himself. Especially those lines struck me:

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;

As an engineer I need to learn things first, I need to know things related to the matter, yet now it comes "I would not [know] if I might" - seems no need to spend precious time for getting knowledge if I'm in Him, abiding in this sweet union of lifes; "and every hour in perfect peace". Lord, keep me experiencing You in this way, trusting You to the uttermost, getting rid of my anxious thoughts. Heading not to the knowledge but to You.
