751 Job Spent His Whole Life Seeking to Know God

Verse 1

Job had never seen God nor heard Him speak,

but he’d truly come to know the means

by which God rules over everything.

He understood His wisdom.

Though he’d never heard God’s spoken word,

he knew that God gives and takes away.


Pre-chorus 1

Though the years of his life

were the same as any others’,

he did not allow his commonplace life

to affect his knowledge of

God’s sovereignty over all things,

or his fearing God and shunning evil.


Chorus

Job’s life was the realization

of God’s rule and arrangements,

who is hidden in all things.

He was attentive to God’s word

and the voice of His heart,

who is silent in all things

but expresses the voice of His heart

by ruling the laws of all things.


Verse 2

Job saw the laws of all are God’s deeds,

God’s sovereignty is seen in man’s life.

He had not seen God, but realized

God’s deeds are everywhere.

During Job’s unremarkable life,

he saw God’s wondrous deeds and arrangements.


Pre-chorus 2

God was hidden and silent,

but it didn’t hinder Job’s

realization of God’s deeds

and his knowledge of

God’s sovereignty over all things,

nor his fearing God and shunning evil.


Chorus

Job’s life was the realization

of God’s rule and arrangements,

who is hidden in all things.

He was attentive to God’s word

and the voice of His heart,

who is silent in all things

but expresses the voice of His heart

by ruling the laws of all things.


Bridge

If people are like Job

in pursuit and humanity,

then they can come to know

the same things known by Job,

and can acquire the same understanding

and knowledge of God’s sovereignty.


Chorus

Job’s life was the realization

of God’s rule and arrangements,

who is hidden in all things.

He was attentive to God’s word

and the voice of His heart,

who is silent in all things

but expresses the voice of His heart

by ruling the laws of all things.
