The Lord knows the way of the righteous.@Psalm 1:6

Ophelia G. Browning, 1905. Some hymnals show the author as Ophelia Adams, one of Browning’s pseudonyms.

C. M. Davis (🔊 pdf nwc).

I love to think my Father knows
Why I have missed the path I chose,
And that I soon shall clearly see
The way He led was best for me.

Refrain

He knows it all, He knows it all,
My Father knows, He knows it all;
Thy bitter tears how fast they fall!
He knows, my Father knows it all.

I love to think my Father knows
The thorns I pluck with every rose
The daily griefs I seek to hide
From the dear souls I walk beside.

Refrain

I love to think my Father knows
The strength or weakness of my foes,
And that I need but stand and see
Each conflict end in victory.
