This song was written by William J. and Gloria Gaither, and was recorded by the Gaither Vocal Band… included on their album, Better Day.

William James Gaither (born March 28, 1936) is an American singer and songwriter of Southern gospel and Contemporary Christian music. He has written numerous popular Christian songs with his wife, Gloria. He is also known for performing as part of the Bill Gaither Trio and the Gaither Vocal Band (GVB). In the 1990s, his career gained a resurgence (as did the careers of other southern gospel artists), as popularity grew for the Gaither Homecoming series.

The Gaither Vocal Band (GVB) is an American southern gospel vocal group, named after its founder and leader, Bill Gaither. Though the group started out recording contemporary Christian music in the 1980s, it became known for southern gospel after the popularity of the Gaither Homecoming videos.
The lineup of the band changes often; artists leaving to work on solo careers, and new and old ones coming to replace them. Besides Bill Gaither, singers with the longest tenure in the band include Guy Penrod (1995–2008), Mark Lowry (1988–2002, 2009–13), Michael English (1985–94, 2009–13), David Phelps (1997–2005, 2009–17) and Wes Hampton (2005–present).
The band has released 29 albums (not including compilations), at least 19 of which have charted. The band has also released 10 DVDs, which feature many other Christian artists as well. The Gaither Vocal Band has been honored with 2 Grammys and 17 Dove Awards.
The 2010 roster of the GVB consisted of Wes Hampton – tenor, David Phelps – tenor, Michael English – lead, Mark Lowry – baritone, and Bill Gaither – bass.

This song confesses the impossibility of trying to explain how – and even sometimes why – God does what He does.
Bible Reference… Job 5:9; Psalm 145:3; Isaiah 40:28; Jeremiah 33:3; Romans 11:33

Don’t ask me to explain to you how one could start again
or hardened hearts could soften like a child.
Don’t ask me how to reason out the mysteries of life
or how to face it’s problems with a smile.
Go ask the man who’s found the way through tangled roads back home to stay,
when all communications were destroyed.
Go ask the child who’s walking now, who once was crippled and then somehow
her useless legs were made to jump for joy.
Go ask the one who’s burned out mind has been restored; I think you’ll find
the question’s not as important as before.
Don’t ask me if He’s good or bad; I only know the guilt I had
is gone and I can’t tell you any more.

And don’t ask me how to prove to you why I know God is there
or how I know that He would care for you.
And don’t ask me why someone so great would chose to walk with me
and trade my broken life for one that’s new.
Go ask the child whose got a dad to love away the hurt he had
before this man called Jesus touched their lives.
Go ask the one whose fears have fled whose churning heart was quieted
when someone whispered peace to all her strife.
Go ask the man to tell you more; whose life was just a raging war
inside himself until the Savior came.
I don’t pretend to be so wise; I only know He touched my eyes
and nothing else will ever be the same.
I don’t pretend to be so wise; I only know He touched my eyes
and nothing else will ever be the same. Nothing else will ever be the same.
