1. I know not what the future hath|
Of marvel or surprise,
Assured alone that life and death
God's mercy underlies.
2. And if my heart and flesh are weak
To bear an untried pain,
The bruised reed He will not break,
But strengthen and sustain.
3. And so beside the silent sea|
I wait the muffled oar:
No harm from Him can come to me
On ocean or on shore.
4. I know not where His islands lift
Their fronded palms in air;
I only know I cannot drift beyond
His love and care.
