Words and music by Stuart Hamblen
From: Guitar Picker -
Known Only to Him

When my (G) eyes behold the stars this (G7) heart of (C) mine is filled with (C#) wonder;
My poor (G) mind cannot (Em) grasp their (A7) array. (D7)
But the (G) hand that spilled them (G7) there (G7+5) all (C) across the wide (C#) heavens,
Had a (G) plan when He (D7) placed them that (G) way. (C) (G)


Known (G) only (D7) to (G) Him (G7+5) are the (C) great hidden (G) secrets,
I'll (G) fear not the (Em) darkness when my (A7) flame shall (D7) dim.
I know not (G) what the future (G7) holds, (G7+5) but I (C) know who holds the (C#) future;
It's a (G) secret known (D7) only to (G) Him. (C) (G)

In this world of fear and doubt on my knees I ask the question,
Why a lonely heavy heart I must bear.
Then he tells me in my prayer it's because I am trustworthy,
He gives me strength much more than my share.
