"God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth" (Psalm 74:12). "Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?" (Proverbs 20:24). "Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights" (Jonah 1:17). "A man named Joseph... went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus... and laid it in a sepulcher that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid" (Luke 23:50-53).
Our God has perfectly prepared
The things pertaining to salvation,
Fulfilling what He has declared
That He would do in every nation.
As in the days when Jonah ran,
We see the hand of God prevail,
Preparing lodging for this man
Within the belly of a whale.
A rich man, by the Lord foreknown,
Prepared the body of our Lord
And placed it in his tomb of stone,
Which would in three days be restored.
How perfectly in every case,
O Lord, You have prepared all things!
We see in every time and place
The blessing Your salvation brings.
