16031. His Way Is Best

1 I know not whe­ther joy or tears
Shall wait me in the com­ing years;
In God’s own hand are all my ways:
He knows the mea­sure of my days.

I’m in His care, this much I know,
And won­drous bless­ings ’round me flow;
He leads me in the bet­ter way
That ends in Hea­ven some sweet day.

2 Much suf­fer­ing oft He deem­eth best,
To draw me clos­er to His breast;
But when the sleep­less nights are long,
He fills my soul with joy­ful song. [Refrain]

3 God’s word stands fast, and it is true
That if His bless­ed will I do,
There is in Heav’n for me a place,
And I shall one day see His face. [Refrain]
