The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet.@Nahum 1:3

In reading the words of God’s prophet,
This wonderful story we meet,
The Lord hath His way in the whirlwind,
The clouds are the dust of His feet.

Refrain

The clouds are the dust of His feet,
The clouds are the dust of His feet;
The Lord hath His way in the whirlwind,
The clouds are the dust of His feet.

What must be His heavenly glory
In all of its fullness complete,
When clothed in their bright golden splendor,
The clouds are the dust of His feet.

Refrain

The dark and the threatening storm clouds,
Bring rest from our thirsting and heat;
So showers of heavenly blessing
God sends from the dust of His feet.

Refrain

When tempests of life beat against us,
This heart cheering thought is most sweet;
We surely are close to the Father,
Since clouds are the dust of His feet.

Refrain
