Straight from hymnal.net:

  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.


This hymn is so awesome, especially stanzas 2 and 4.  It causes me to experience the Lord as my rest.  Isn't it so sweet that our Savior is so loving?  We have one who leads us closely.  I have to admit that I'm not good at following, but when I listen to hymns like this, I just repent of any hardness in my heart.  I want to listen to His voice, and be led by Him, in all things, large and small.
