Original Key: D


Verse 1:
  D                   A       Bm
I know not why God's wondrous grace
   D  D/F♯  G    G2/B  D/A
To me hath  been made  known;
D   G      D/F♯ D  Em   Bm  A
Nor why, unworthy  as   I   am,
   D          D/F♯    G2  G
He claimed me for His own.
Verse 2:
I know not how this saving  faith
to me He did impart;
or how believing in His word
wrought peace within my heart.
    Chorus:
          A              A7/C♯  Dsus2add4   D
    But I know whom I've be   -   lie   -   v

I know not why God's wondrous grace 
To me hath been made known
Nor why, unworthy as I am
He claimed me for His own

I know not how this saving faith
To me He did impart
Or how believing in His word
Wrought peace within my heart

But I know whom I've believèd
He's able now to save
What I've committed unto Him
Until that final day

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
I know not how or where
If I shall pass the vale of death
Or meet Him in the air
