Thy Way, O Lord, Is in the Sea

Thy way, O Lord, is in the sea;
Thy paths we cannot trace,
Nor comprehend the mystery
Of Thine unbounded grace.

As through a glass we dimly see
The wonders of Thy love;
How little do we know of Thee,
Or of the joys above!

'Tis but in part we know Thy will;
We bless Thee for the sight:
Soon will Thy love the rest reveal,
In glory's clearer light.

With rapture shall we then survey
Thy providence and grace;
And spend an everlasting day
In wonder, love, and praise.

John Fawcett

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #45.

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.

  1. Missed you last week Angela. I’ve said before and I’ll say again I love that you post these. Seeing the words to songs, even those that are unfamiliar to me, tells me the truth of the adage “he who sings prays twice.” Thanks for the Sunday prayers!
