God Moves in Mysterious Ways!

 
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm
 
You fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds you so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
in blessings on your head.
 
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
 
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste, 
But sweet will be the flower.
 
Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan His work in vain,
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.
                                                       – William Cowper
