This encouraged my heart today...


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

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

-William Cowper

I like the second stanza especially. I am so often foolishly fearful. Oh, the wonderful mercy of God!

Is this a hymn?

What a sweet way to be reminded that fear is not of the Lord and that we are in His hands. Thanks.
