God is working his purpose out
Tune: Purpose
Metre: Irregular

 

God is working his purpose out,

as year succeeds to year:

God is working his purpose out,

and the time is drawing near.

Nearer and nearer draws the time,

the time that shall surely be,

When the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea.

 

What can we do to work Godís work,

to prosper and increase

The brotherhood of all mankind

the reign of the Prince of Peace?

What can we do to hasten the time,

the time that shall surely be,

When the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea?

 

March we forth in the strength of God,

with the banner of Christ unfurled,

That the light of the glorious Gospel of truth

may shine throughout the world:

Fight we the fight with sorrow and sin,

to set their captives free,

That the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea.

 

All we can do is nothing worth

unless God blesses the deed;

Vainly we hope for the harvest-tide,

till God gives life to the seed;

Yet nearer and nearer draws the time,

the time that shall surely be,

When the earth shall be filled

with the glory of God

as the waters cover the sea.
