I am not skilled to understand…

My Savior, My God by Aaron Shust seems appropriate today.

It is a little known fact (among my circle of friends) that the words were originally written as a hymn by Dorothy Greenwell in 1873.

Thanks be to Aaron Shust for adding the bridge “My Savior lives. My Savior loves. My Savior’s always there for me. / My God He was. My God He is. My God He’s always ‘gonna’ be.” and re-packaging this wonderful poetry from the 19th Century.

I am not skilled to understand
What God hath willed, what God hath planned;
I only know at His right hand
Stands One who is my Savior.I take Him at His word indeed:
“Christ died for sinners”–this I read;
For in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Savior!That He should leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange? So once did I
Before I knew my Savior!And, oh, that He fulfilled may see
The travail of His soul in me,
And with His work contented be,
As I with my dear Savior!Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring-
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior!source: http://www.lyricsondemand.com/miscellaneouslyrics/christianlyrics/iamnotskilledtounderstandlyrics.html
