744 The Proof of Job’s Victory Over Satan

Verse 1

See Job’s obedience towards God:

He said, “Naked I came, thus I’ll go.”

His words prove he overcame Satan.

He also said, “Jehovah gave,

and Jehovah has taken away.

Jehovah, blessed, blessed be His name.”


Verse 2

Those words Job spoke prove to all that

God observes the depths of all man’s hearts.

He looks into the mind of man.

They prove His approval of Job

is without error, that this man

who was approved by God was righteous.


Chorus

“Jehovah gave, and Jehovah has taken away.

Jehovah, Jehovah, blessed be His name.”

These words are Job’s testimony to God and say,

“Jehovah, Jehovah, blessed be His name, His name.”


Verse 3

These ordinary words cowed Satan,

brought it shame, and it fled in panic.

It was shackled and left with nothing.

These words made Satan feel the power,

the wondrousness of the deeds of God,

amazing deeds of Jehovah God.


Chorus

“Jehovah gave, and Jehovah has taken away.

Jehovah, Jehovah, blessed be His name.”

These words are Job’s testimony to God and say,

“Jehovah, Jehovah, blessed be His name.”


Bridge

These words made Satan see the stunning appeal of one

whose heart was directed by the way of God.

They showed Satan the powerful vitality

shown by such a small and trivial man

in adhering to shunning evil and fearing God,

shunning evil and fearing God.


Chorus

“Jehovah gave, and Jehovah has taken away.

Jehovah, Jehovah, blessed be His name.”

These words are Job’s testimony to God and say,

“Jehovah, Jehovah, blessed be His name, His name.”
