OVERRULING ALL FOR GOOD




In never ceasing songs of praise,
Let us to God our voices raise,
With harmony divine;
The methods of whose providence
Are far above the reach of sense,
Yet fraught with kind design,


While clouds and darkness veil his seat,
While thunders roll beneath his feet,
And lightnings flash around;
Still all his thoughts are thoughts of peace,
His counsels truth and righteousness,
And thus shall they be found.


He smiles, his frowns, and chastening rod,
All work together for our good,
The bitter and the sweet;
By rugged ways and paths unknown,
He leads to his celestial throne,
To make our bliss complete.


Temptations, trials, doubts and fears,
Afflictions, losses, groans and tears,
Attend us through the vale;
But if Jehovah be our friend,
These will erelong in triumphs end,
Nor more our peace assail.


Oh may this thought in deep distress,
Our hopes confirm, our fears suppress,
And soften every care;
For those whom Jesus deigns to love,
Afflictions shall a blessing prove,
And brighter crowns prepare.
