Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

God reigns, events in order flow

God reigns, events in order flow

Author: John Scott
Published in 28 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.
