"God Moves in a Mysterious Way" by William Cowper, 1731-1800 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 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 sovereign 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 every hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flower. 6. Blind unbelief is sure to err And scan His work in vain; God is His own Interpreter, And He will make it plain.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Cindy A.
