Page 23 - Thy truth shall break through every cloud That veils and darkens thy designs. 2 For ever firm thy justice stands, As mountains their foundations keep ; Wise are the wonders of thy hands, Thy judgments are a mighty deep. 3 Thy providence is kind and large, Both man and beast thy bounty share ; The whole creation is thy charge, But saints are thy peculiar care.
