"I Know"

2 Timothy 1:12
...for I know whom I have believed,
and am persuaded that he is able to keep that
which I have committed unto him against that day.

Hebrews 10:35
Cast not away therefore your confidence,
which hath great recompence of reward.

"I Know" --against this fortress wall
The gates of hell shall not prevail;
I know in Whom I have believed
And that His word shall never fail;
I know that He is strong to keep,
And all that I commit to Him
Is safe, though I may wake or sleep.

"I Know" --this Spirit-sword of truth
Can pierce the cunning foe's device;
I know to ransom me from death
My Saviour paid the utmost price;
I know my sins are all forgiven
Since on the cross my sin He bore,
And if His suffereings I share
I'll share His glory evermore.

"I Know" --against this shield of faith
The darts of Hate are powerless;
I know not anything that is:
Not tribulation nor distress,
Not all the heights nor all the depths
Of demon power, strong and great,
Not present things, nor things to come,
Christ's love from me can separate.

"I Know" --this one triumphant phrase
Can silence doubts and banish fears;
I know that all thins work for good
And I have proved it through the years;
I know my Shepherd's guiding hand,
His faithfulness, His tender care,
That all my need He doth supply
And all my burdens He doth bear.

"I Know" --upon this lighthouse tower
The winds and waves shall beat in vain;
I know that my Redeemer lives
And in His death all Death was slain;
I know my life is hid with Him
Beyond the reach of change or harm,
And life and death to me are one
Within the shelter of His arm.

"I Know" --my firm foundation this,
The Rock amid the shifting sand,
I know that Jesus is the Christ,
And builded there my house shall stand;
I know, though all my hand hath wrought
By fire and flood be swept away,
This cornerstone of faith shall rest
Unshaken in the last great day.

"I Know" --this anchor-hope will hold
Till storms and clouds forever cease;
I know that He will come again
To bring the Thousand Years of Peace;
I know that when He shall appear
And earth and time for me are past,
When in His likeness I awake
I shall be satisfied at last.

Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
