God works His purposes faithfully out

This song is a beautiful reminder that God is always true to His Word.

“God works His purposes faithfully out. Eternal are His ways; never let us doubt.” So begins this beautiful reminder that God is always true to His Word. This song is written by Helen Simons, the melody by Amy de Jong and is sung here by Naomi Damnjanovic.

God works His purposes faithfully out.
Eternal are His ways; never let us doubt.
Nothing can stay His hand; no foe can Him withstand.
Soon over every land God’s Word will go.

He seeks the needy ones with spirits poor—
Those who have hungry hearts and love His law.
They know of foes within; they have a hate for sin.
Such Jesus longs to win and bids them come.

If you have heard His voice, hasten today.
Time is fast running out; do not delay.
Take up your cross, and know He will great power bestow.
Faithfully onward go; soon Jesus comes.

Yes, it will be too late when Christ has come;
Now is the time of grace; now we may run.
Run to obtain the prize. Glory awaits the wise;
For in their Bridegroom’s eyes, worthy they are.
