Sunday Hymnary: “Our God In All Things Works For Good” by Douglas Bond, 2006

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;

This God in all things meets men’s needs

And just and unjust kindly feeds.

When clouds descend and troubles rise,

Distress, and darkness, death and cries,

Still God is good in pain and loss,

And bears his own who bear their cross.

Redeeming goodness, from the fall,

For chosen ones God bought and called,

In goodness to repentance leads;

His lambs he comforts, guides, and feeds.

Praise God who all things works for good,

Whose loving kindness firm has stood

And will through endless ages stand,

Unerring, ordered by his hand.

Douglas Bond
