Matthew 14:28–32 (Listen)

28 And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” 29 He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind,1 he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” 31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.

Hymn: TLH 514, st. 1-4: God Moves in a Mysterious Way

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. God moves in a mysterious way 
His wonders to perform; 
He plants His footsteps in the sea 
And rides upon the storm. 

2. Deep in unfathomable mines 
Of never-failing skill 
He treasures up His bright designs 
And works His sovereign will. 

3. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take; 
The clouds ye so much dread 
Are big with mercy and shall break 
In blessings on your head. 

4. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense. 
But trust Him for His grace; 
Behind a frowning providence 
He hides a smiling face.
