Background

A description of the experience

William Cowper – from the Everyman's poetry collection


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

Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill,
He treasures up his bright designs
And works his sovereign will.
…..............
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense
But trust him for his grace
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face

His purposes will ripen fast
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste
But sweet will be the flower

The source of the experience

Cowper, William
