God Moves In A Mysterious Way Comments

Rating: 3.2

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


William Cowper

I have often heard the well-known opening lines of this hymn attributed to the author of the Book of Psalms. I am pleased to see it printed in its entirety on this site and credited to the rightful author. Thank you.

The author never quotes the bible here. He uses truths about God which can be biblically supported with the bible. However, the descriptions are his.

Truly very inspirational... Each verse is so deep! I am also grateful & indebted to Sir William Cowper for this poem (since my blog - http: // - that revolves around it got published in the 'Chicken Soup for the Indian Soul') Thanks :)
