Oh, to see tomorrow, and know
What the future doth hold;
To look with eyes unveiled,
Regard eternity’s truth unfold!
Oh Lord, if I canst not behold
All that I wish to see,
If, by thy grace, Thou canst bestow
Some measure of Light on me,
Be Thou my Guide in these regions strange;
Lead me in paths that are straight!
I pledge to Thee with all my will,
I’ll follow where Thou dost lead.
I’ll put my trust in Thy matchless care,
Knowing it cannot fail.
For thou art my Brother; my Sovereign too,
And one day to come I will see –
The future thou didst deny to my view
In Thy wisdom, eternal and true,
For reasons Thou knowest, and Thou alone,
Because Thou protectedst me.
