Hymn/Song Information

Thy way O Lord is in the sea Thy paths I cannot




Thy way, O God! is in the sea,
Thy paths I cannot trace;
Nor comprehend the mystery
Of thine unbounded grace.


'Tis but in part I know thy will;
I bless thee for the sight;
When will thy love the rest reveal,
In glory's clearer light?


Here the dark veils of flesh and sense
My captive soul surround;
Mysterious deeps of providence
My wondering thoughts confound.


As through a glass I dimly see
The wonders of thy love;
How little do I know of thee,
Or of the joys above!


With rapture I shall soon survey
Thy providence and grace;
And spend an everlasting day
In wonder, love, and praise.


---Alternative verses---


Thy way, O Lord! is in the sea,
Thy paths I cannot trace;
Nor comprehend the mystery
Of thine unbounded grace.


With rapture shall I then survey
Thy providence and grace;
And spend an everlasting day
In wonder, love, and praise.


With rapture I shall then survey
Thy providence and grace;
And spend an everlasting day
In wonder, love, and praise.


'Tis but in part we know thy will;
We bless thee for the sight;
When will thy love the rest reveal,
In glory's clearer light?


As through a glass we dimly see
The wonders of thy love;
How little do we know of thee,
Or of the joys above!
