    Verse 1
    God moves in a mysterious way
    His wonders to perform;
    He plants His footsteps in the sea
    And rides upon the storm.

    Verse 2
    Deep in unfathomable mines
    Of never-failing skill
    He treasures up His bright designs,
    And works His sovereign will.

    Verse 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.

    Verse 4
    Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
    But trust Him for His grace;
    Behind a frowning providence
    He hides a smiling face.

    Verse 5
    His purposes will ripen fast,
    Unfolding every hour:
    The bud may have a bitter taste
    But sweet will be the flower.

    Verse 6
    Blind unbelief is sure to err,
    And scan His work in vain:
    God is His own interpreter,
    And He will make it plain.
