Hymn: 'Light Shining Out of Darkness', by William Cowper

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.

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

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.

Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain:
God is his own interpreter,
And he will make it plain.

A man may be out of Christ to-day, and in Him to-morrow; but he cannot be in Him to-day, and out of Him to-morrow.

Quote: J. C. Ryle on Private Prayer

You may be very sure men fall in private long before they fall in public.They are backsliders on their knees long before they backslide openly in the eyes of the world.
