"Thy footsteps are not known"
- Ps. 77:19

1.  GOD moves in a mysterious way

     His wonders to perform

     He plants His footsteps in the sea 

     And rides upon the storm.

2.  Deep in unfathomable mines

     Of ever-failing skill

     He treasures up His bright designs 

     And works His sovereign will.

3.  Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take 

    The cloud ye so much dread

    Are big with mercy and shall break 

    ln blessings on your head.

4.  Judge not the Lord by feeble sense 

     But trust him for His grace 

     Behind a frowning providence 

     He hides a smiling face.

5.  His purposes will ripen fast 

     Unfolding every hour

     The bud may have a bitter taste 

    But sweet will be the flower.

6.  Blind unbelief is sure to err 

     And seem His work in vain

    God is His own interpreter 

    And he will make it plain.  Amen
