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

His purposes shall ripen fast,
Unfolding ev'ry hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flow'r.

Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take,
The clouds you so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.
