7 C.M. Samuel Medley
The Wisdom and Goodness of God. Exod. 34. 6

1 God shall alone the refuge be,
And comfort of my mind;
Too wise to be mistaken, He,
Too good to be unkind.

2 In all his holy, sovereign will,
He is, I daily find,
Too wise to be mistaken, still
Too good to be unkind.

3 [When I the tempter’s rage endure,
’Tis God supports my mind;
Too wise to be mistaken, sure,
Too good to be unkind.]

4 [When sore afflictions on me lie,
He is (though I am blind)
Too wise to be mistaken, yea,
Too good to be unkind.]

5 What though I can’t his goings see,
Nor all his footsteps find?
Too wise to be mistaken, He,
Too good to be unkind.

6 Hereafter he will make me know,
And I shall surely find,
He was too wise to err, and O,
Too good to be unkind.


In the end, all our doubts of God will prove utterly false. He is the only one who never makes mistakes. He is the only one who is all-powerful. He is our support in temptation. He uses "sore afflictions" for our unthinkable good. He doesn't reveal to us everything He is doing. He will make it plain that all things in history have served his purposes.
