Within His Knowing

I traveled down a pleasant road,
Its pathway smooth and straight.
Flowers bloomed on either side,
A gentle breeze was blowing.
Each step I took along that path,
I walked within His Knowing.


I had not traveled very far
Before the pathway changed.
My way grew hard and stony and
A chilly wind was blowing.
Each step I took along that path,
I walked within His Knowing.


 



I traveled farther down that path,
The way grew steep and winding.
Small stones have turned to boulders.
A much colder wind is blowing.
Each faltering step along this path,
I still walk within His Knowing.


The road ahead I do not know,
That path I cannot see.
That road might make another bend.
The wind may roar with angry blowing.
I will walk with steadfast confidence,
I will walk within His Knowing.
