"A Light Shining out of Darkness"

by William Cowper

God moves in a mysterious way,
     His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea,
     And rides upon the storm.
Deep in unfathomable mines
     Of never failing skill,
He treasures up His bright designs,
     And works His sovereign will.
Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take,
     The clouds ye 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 ev'ry hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
     But sweet will be the flow'r.
Blind unbelief is sure to err,
     And scan his work in vain;
GOD is his own interpreter,
     And he will make it plain.
