Our God In All Things

This is another modern hymn taken from the Rise and Worship: New Reformation Hymns album, and is sung by Nathan Clark George, and written by Douglas Bond. Surely this hymn must be based on Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Enjoy!

Our God in all things works for good;
His sovereign, gracious will has stood
And will through endless ages stand,
Sustained and ordered by his hand.
In goodness God stretched out the sky,
The sun and moon and stars that cry,
“Almighty God has made all things!”—
Creation groans yet shouts and sings.
From heaven’s bounty God gives food
To saint and rebel, bad and good;
Our God in all things meets men’s needs
And just and unjust kindly feeds.
When clouds descend and troubles rise,
Despair and darkness, tears and sighs,
Yet God is good in grief and loss,
And bears his own who bear their cross.
Redemption, purchased and applied
To favoured ones for whom Christ died;
His lambs he grants repentance free
And eyes of faith his cross to see.
All praise to God who works for good!
Whose loving kindness firm has stood
And will through endless ages stand,
