1. I know not what the fu - ture hath Of mar - vel or sur - prise,
2. And so be - side the Si - lent Sea I wait the muf-fled oar;
3. I know not where His is - lands lift Their fronded palms in air;
4. And Thou, O Lord! by Whom are seen Thy crea- tares as they be,
As - sured a - lone that life and death His mer - cy un - der - lies.
No harm from Him can come to me On o - cean or on shore.
I on - ly know I can - not drift Be - yond His love and care.
For-give me if too close I lean My hu - man heart on Thee.
