Finite vs. Infinite


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. …

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


  • William Cowper,
"Light Shining Out of Darkness " (partial)- from The Olney Hymns
