I Know Not Why - Poem by O'Rita Demmons

I know not why.
I know not why. The Lord stays by my side.
He guides me by His gleaming lights.
Through the days and nights.
I know not why.
But Oh! How I must try to live my life for him.
He died for all my sins.
When trouble comes my way.
And it looks as though it might be here to stay.
But then I turn to him.
You know he died for all my sins.
He lifts me out of troubles why.
Though it may be night or day.
No better friend than him.
You know he died for all my sins.
