THE WISDOM OF GOD




Wait, O my soul, thy Makerís will;
Tumultuous passions, all be still!
Nor let a murmuring thought arise;
His ways are just, His counsels wise.


He in the thickest darkness dwells,
Performs His work, the cause conceals;
And though His footsteps are unknown,
Judgement and truth support His throne.


In heaven, and earth, in air, and seas
He executes His wise decrees;
And by His saints it stands confessed,
That what He does is ever best.


Then, O my soul, submissive wait;
With reverence bow before his seat;
And, ímidst the terrors of His rod,
Trust in a wise and gracious God.


---Alternative verses---


He in the thickest darkness dwells,
Performs His work, the cause conceals;
But, though His methods are unknown,
Judgment and truth support His throne.


In heaven, and earth, in air, and seas
He executes His firm decrees;
And by His saints it stands confessed,
That what He does is ever best.


Wait, then, my soul, submissive wait;
Prostrate before His awful seat;
And, ímidst the terrors of His rod,
Trust in a wise and gracious God.


Wait, then, my soul, submissive wait;
With reverence bow before His seat;
And, ímid the terrors of His rod,
Trust in a wise and gracious God.
