  1. 1. God moves in a mysterious way
    His wonders to perform;
    He plants his footsteps in the sea
    And rides upon the storm.
  2. 2. Ye fearful Saints, fresh courage take;
    The clouds ye so much dread
    Are big with mercy and shall break
    In blessings on your head.
  3. 3. His purposes will ripen fast,
    Unfolding ev'ry hour;
    The bud may have a bitter taste,
    But sweet will be the flower.
  4. 4. Blind unbelief is sure to err
    And scan his works in vain;
    God is his own interpreter,
    And he will make it plain.
  5. Text: William Cowper, 1731-1800
    Music: William B. Bradbury, 1816-1868
