God moves in a mysterious way

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 sov’reign 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 in His grace;
behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.

Blind unbelief is sure to err,
and scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
and He will make it plain.
