(Tune: #77—Sun of My Soul—LM)
Our God is just, His counsels wise,
He is the Sov’reign of the skies.
Nothing exists, nothing can move,
But by the will of God above.
He Who is God and God alone
Performs His will and answers none.
His thoughts are high, His ways unknown,
Justice and Truth surround His throne!
In heaven, earth, and deepest hell
Our God performs His sov’reign will;
And all His saints humbly confess
That what He does is always best.
So wait, my soul, in faith and peace,
Prostrate before the throne of grace.
Yes, kiss the Father’s chastening rod
And trust your wise and gracious God.
