If we could see beyond today
As God can see;
If all the clouds should roll away,
The shadows flee;
O'er present griefs we would not fret.
Each sorry we would soon forget,
For many joys are waiting yet
For you and me.
If we could know beyond today
As God does know,
Why dearest treasures pass away
And tears must flow;
Any why the darkness leads to light,
Why dreary paths will soon grow bright;
Some day life's wrongs will be made right
Faith tells us so
"If we could see, if we could know,"
We often say,
But God in love a veil does throw
Across our way;
We cannot see what lies before
And so we cling to Him the more,
He leads us till life is o'er;
Trust and obey
