Our God is Just, His Counsels Wise—Don Fortner

(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.
