I Do Not Know the Answer

I do not know the answer
Perplexed I turn to Thee

I do not know the answer
Perplexed I turn to Thee
A maelstrom of conflictings
No hope to struggle free!

I fling myself upon Thee
I cling with waning strength
I will not be abandoned
Nothing my grip shall wrench

A weaned child with her mother
She cannot understand
And yet she snuggles closer
And quietly holds her hand

O Lord in deep submission
I bend myself to Thee
Despite my apprehension
I choose to follow Thee.
