His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.
Hymn: TLH 514, st. 1,4,5 :
God Moves in a Mysterious Way
1. God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
4. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense.
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
5. His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.
