LIGHT SHINING OUT OF DARKNESS



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 purpose will open fast,        
        Unfolding ev'ry hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
        But sweet will be the flow'r.
