Title: O God, in a Mysterious Way
Composer: alt.Scottish Psalter, 1615 Arr. Thomas Ravenscroft, 1621
Author: William Cowper, 1774;
1. O God, in a mysterious way Great wonders You perform; You plant Your footsteps in the sea And ride upon the storm. 2. Deep in unfathomable mines Of never-failing skill You treasure up Your bright designs, And work Your sovereign will. 3. O fearful saints, fresh courage take; The clouds you so much dread Are big with mercy and shall break In blessings on your head. 4. Our unbelief is sure to err And scan Your work in vain; You are Your own interpreter, And You will make it plain.
