Composer: alt.Scottish Psalter, 1615 Arr. Thomas Ravenscroft, 1621
Author: William Cowper, 1774;
Theme: God

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.
