Brexit : Look beyond!
Great providence of heaven– What wonders shine In its profound display Of God’s design: It guards the dust of earth, Commands the hosts above, Fulfils the mighty plan Of his great love
The kingdoms of this world Lie in its hand; See how they rise or fall At its command Through sorrow and distress, Tempestuous storms that rage, God’s kingdom yet endures From age to age
Its darkness dense is but A radiant light; Its oft-perplexing ways Are ordered right. Soon all its winding paths Will end, and then the tale Of wonder shall be told Beyond the veil.
(Hymn by David Charles, 1762-1834; Translated from Welsh by Edmund Tudor Owen)
