Sunday Hymnary: “God Shall Alone the Refuge Be” by Samuel Medley (1739–1799)

GOD shall alone the refuge be,
And comfort of my mind;
Too wise to be mistaken, He
Too good to be unkind.

In all his holy, sovereign will,
He is, I daily find,
Too wise to be mistaken, still
Too good to be unkind.

When I the tempter’s rage endure
’Tis God supports my mind;
Too wise to be mistaken, sure,
Too good to be unkind.

When sore afflictions on me lie,
He is (though I am blind)
Too wise to be mistaken, yea,
Too good to be unkind.

What though I can’t his goings see,
Nor all his footsteps find?
Too wise to be mistaken, He,
Too good to be unkind.

Hereafter he will make me know,
And I shall surely find,
He was too wise to err, and O,
Too good to be unkind.
