God Moves in a Mysterious Way - San Jacinto College Chorale


God moves in a mysterious way

his wonders to perform.

He plants his footsteps in the sea

and rides upon the storm.


Deep in unfathomable mines

of never-failing skill,

he treasures up his bright designs

and works his sovereign will.


Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;

the clouds ye so much dread

are big with mercy and shall break

in blessings on your head.


His purposes will ripen fast,

unfolding every hour.

The bud may have a bitter taste,

but sweet will be the flower.


Blind unbelief is sure to err

and scan his work in vain.

God is his own interpreter,

and he will make it plain.
