137 All God’s Work Is Most Practical

Chorus

In God’s work, He expresses what He is;

He does not rack His brains to formulate it.

The work He does is the most actual work.

It’s based on how things change, how each era develops.


Verse 1

For God doing work is akin

to treating an illness with medicine.

He observes and continues His work

according to the results He’s seen.

In every stage of His work,

God can express wisdom, ability

according to the work of each stage.

He shows ample wisdom, authority.

He lets all from that age brought back by Him

see His entire disposition.


Verse 2

God provides for people’s needs according

to the work He needs to do in each age,

meets humankind’s needs based on the degree

to which they’ve been corrupted by Satan.

He has been engaged in new work

ever since the world was created,

and not one of the steps of this work

has ever once been repeated.

Satan constantly plots, corrupting men;

God performs His wise work again and again.


Pre-chorus 1

He has never stopped working or failed

ever since the world was created.

After Satan corrupted humans,

He worked on to defeat it amongst them,

to beat the source of their corruption.

This battle has raged since the world commenced,

and it will rage on until the world ends.


Chorus

In God’s work, He expresses what He is;

He does not rack His brains to formulate it.

The work He does is the most actual work.

It’s based on how things change, how each era develops.


Verse 3

In doing His work Jehovah God

brings great salvation to humans;

He also lets them see His wisdom,

authority and omnipotence.

In the end He will let them see

He has a righteous disposition,

rewarding all those who are good,

punishing those who are wicked.

Based on Satan’s plots He uses His wisdom.

He’s never failed in His war with Satan.


Pre-chorus 2

So God not only makes everything

in heav’n bow to His authority;

He has all things upon earth rest

below His footstool and, not least,

He makes those fall within His chastisement

who wickedly invade, harass humans.

Fruits from all this work are due to His wisdom.


Chorus

In God’s work, He expresses what He is;

He does not rack His brains to formulate it.

The work He does is the most actual work.

It’s based on how things change, how each era develops.
