Beddome Hymn: “Under Dark Providence”

Here is a good hymn by Beddome (HT: Gray Brady: Hymn Dark Providence)—it well expresses my current feelings:

Under Dark Providence

Great God, how deep thy counsels are, To mortals quite unknown; In vain we search with curious eye, For darkness veils thy throne.

Yet would we wish for grace divine, To guide our mental powers; And midst perplexing scenes of life To know that thou art ours.

‘Let there be light,’ was once the word. Oh be it so again! What thou hast promised, Lord, we seek, Nor let us seek in vain.
