We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

God reigns, events in order flow

God reigns, events in order flow

Author: John Scott
Published in 29 hymnals

Representative Text

1 God reigns; events in order flow,
Man's industry to guide:
But in a diff'rent channel go,
To humble human pride.

2 The swift not always, in the race,
Shall seize the crowning prize;
Not always wealth and honor grace
The labors of the wise.

3 Fond mortals but themselves beguile,
When on themselves they rest:
Blind is their wisdom, vain their toil,
By thee, O Lord, unbless'd.

4 Evil and good before thee stand,
Their mission to perform:
The sun shines bright at thy command,
Thy hand directs the storm.

5 O Lord in all our ways we'll own
Thy providential pow'r;
Entrusting to thy care alone
The lot of ev'ry hour.
