878 Every Step of God’s Work Is for the Life of Man

Verse 1

God has become flesh this time

to complete His unfinished work,

to judge this age, bring it to an end,

save the sinful from the world of pain

and utterly transform them.

Chorus 1

God spends sleepless nights for the work of mankind.

From the heights to the depths, He’s descended

to the living hell to spend time with people.

He’s never complained of the world’s shabbiness,

He’s never rebuked man’s defiance,

but bears disgrace as He does work Himself.

Verse 2

How could God be of hell or spend His life there?

But for man’s sake, so man can rest sooner,

He has endured disgrace and borne injustice

to come down to earth and go into a “hell,”

for man’s salvation.

Chorus 2

What qualifies man to go against God?

How can man complain of Him?

Or have the gall to look upon Him?

God’s come from heaven to this vile land of vice,

never venting objections or gripes about man.

Verse 3

He quietly accepts man’s oppression and abuse,

has never opposed man’s demands

or demanded of man unreasonable things;

He does the work man needs with no complaint.

Chorus 3

Which of His steps has not been for mankind?

He enlightens, reproaches, refines with words;

He reminds, consoles, judges and reveals.

Though He’s removed man’s fate,

which steps have not been for man’s survival,

or to free man from pain and from darkness?


Who understands God’s eager heart,

which is like that of a loving mother?
