Hymn 55 - "Through waves, through clouds and storms,"


Through waves,  through clouds and storms,

God gently clears the way;

We wait His time; so shall the night

Soon end in blissful day.



He everywhere hath sway,

And all things serve His might;

His every act pure blessing is,

His path unsullied light.



When He makes bare His arm,

Who shall His work withstand?

When He His people's cause defends,

Who then shall stay His hand?



We leave it to Himself

To choose and to command;

With wonder filled, we soon shall see

How wise, how strong His hand!



We comprehend Him not,

Yet earth and heaven tell,

God sits as sovereign on the throne,

And ruleth all things well.
