1. I know not how that Bethlehemís Babe
Could in the Godhead be;
I only know the manger Child
Has brought Godís life to me.

2. I know not how that Calvaryís cross
A world from sin could free;
I only know its matchless love
Has brought Godís love to me.

3. I know not how that Josephís tomb
Could solve deathís mystery;
I only know a living Christ,
Our immortality.
