(Henry Law, “Psalms” 1878)
“He causes the clouds to rise over the
earth. He sends the lightning with the
rain and releases the wind from His
storehouses.” Psalm 135:7
The wild elements seem to unenlightened
observation to act capriciously and without
control. But His power holds them fast
bound in His hands.
No clouds arise,
no lightning flashes,
no rain descends,
no wind blows furiously,
but in accordance with His sovereign will.
Let us bless God for His unbounded rule.
