Hymn/Song Information

ITS SEEMING INEQUALITY




The vast designs of providence
Lie unexplored by feeble sense;
Wrapt up and hid from mortal sight,
In mystic clouds or dazzling light.


The wicked boasts his heart’s desire,
His sumptuous fare and rich attire;
Still be augments his useless store,
And still impatient craves for more.


He bears aloft his haughty eyes,
Mercy contemns, and wrath defies;
No pangs attend his parting breath,
Careless through life, yet calm in death.


But lo! Successive troubles roll
O’er the believer’s fainting soul;
Satan assaults and break his peace,
And but with life his sorrows cease.


Thy judgments, Lord, a mighty deep,
We meditate —and silence keep;
And though thy path to us unknown,
We still thy truth and mercy own.
