- Songs for the Hard Times. (God moves in a mysterious way / His wonders to perform; / He plants His footsteps in the sea / And rides upon the storm. / Deep in his dark and hidden mines / With never failing skill / He fashions all His bright designs / And works His sovereign will // O God, we trust in You / O God, we trust in You / When tears are great and comforts few / We hope in mercies ever new / We trust in You.) ... and you can download the MP3 for free on the right sidebar.
