High as the sun and stars above

Sheet music

  1. Eternal, inconceivable
    God’s counsels for His children are!
    How can I understand them?
    God the Almighty’s great designs
    ne’er were made known to human minds;
    their depths are like the ocean.

  2. My heart finds peace from all distress
    when in Your loving will I rest
    like a small child so trusting.
    My heart would yearn for nothing more
    than what You give Your child, O Lord.
    Your will is best, my Father.

  3. To You my life, my all, I bring,
    for pain and loss are gain to me.
    From Your hand I accept them.
    Your will, so merciful and kind,
    measures exactly for Your child
    what I can bear and suffer.

  4. The Lord is good, is good indeed!
    This gives me courage, strengthens me
    to follow on hard pathways.
    To You, O Lord, my will I bring
    and in my pain and grief I sing,
    Your will is only goodness.

  5. It’s love that lays this yoke on me.
    By cords of love Your child You lead
    through wilderness and darkness.
    Bound to Your heart by cords so blest,
    held firm in suff’ring and distress,
    I’m one with You for ever.

  6. The Lord is good, is good indeed!
    This gives me courage, strengthens me.
    In Him I trust completely.
    His ways and plans are always right.
    And when He leads me through dark night,
    His love will light my pathway.

    Can also be sung to melody no. 26, “O the majestic will of God”.
