633. Whate'er Our God Ordains Is Right

1 Whate'er our God ordains is right;
His holy will abiding;
We will be still, whate'er he does,
And follow where he's guiding.
He is our God;
Though dark our road,
He holds us that we shall not fall;
Wherefore to him we leave it all.

2 Whate'er our God ordains is right;
He never will deceive us.
He leads us by the proper path;
We know he will not leave us,
And take, content,
What he has sent;
His hand can turn our griefs away,
And patiently we wait his day.

3 Whate'er our God ordains is right;
Here shall our stand be taken;
Though sorrow, need, or death be ours,
Yet we are not forsaken;
Our Father's care
Is round us there;
He holds us that we shall not fall,
And so to him we leave it all.

Amen.
