God Moves in a Mysterious Way

  1. God moves in a mysterious way
    his wonders to perform;
    he plants his footsteps in the sea,
    and rides upon the storm.
  2. Deep in unfathomable mines
    of never-failing skill
    he treasures up his bright designs,
    and works his sov’reign will.
  3. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
    the clouds ye so much dread
    are big with mercy, and shall break
    in blessings on your head.
  4. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
    but trust him for his grace;
    behind a frowning providence
    he hides a smiling face.
  5. His purposes will ripen fast,
    unfolding ev’ry hour;
    the bud may have a bitter taste,
    but sweet will be the flow’r.
  6. Blind unbelief is sure to err,
    and scan his work in vain;
    God is his own interpreter,
    and he will make it plain.
