131 God Brings New Work in the New Age

Verse 1

When Jesus began His work,

He’d left the chains of the Age of Law,

breaking its rules and values.

And none were left in Him;

He cast them off entirely,

nor asked man to observe them.

Jesus did not rest on the Sabbath;

He was outside working.


Pre-chorus

This was a shock to all that He was not under law,

out of the Sabbath’s confines, into a new image and work.


Chorus

When God begins His new work, He reveals Himself to man,

using a brand-new image, in a brand-new way.

It’s one of His goals that man sees other aspects

of His disposition, what He has and is.


Verse 2

Jesus’ action showed that

He had brought new work,

starting with breaking Sabbath,

going out from the law.

When God performed His new work,

He cast aside the past,

no longer held by old rules

of the Age of Law.


Bridge

So He worked the same on the Sabbath day.

When His disciples were hungry,

they could pick corn to eat.

This was normal to God.

God could begin afresh in His work and words.

Not looking back, He starts anew.


Chorus

When God begins His new work, He reveals Himself to man,

using a brand-new image, in a brand-new way.

It’s one of His goals that man sees other aspects

of His disposition, what He has and is.


Verse 3

God’s work has principles.

And when He begins new work,

it’s in a higher phase

and He brings man in.

God won’t remember or approve

man’s clinging to old words and rules,

since He has brought

and entered a new phase of work.


Chorus

When God begins His new work, He reveals Himself to man,

oh, using a brand-new image, in a brand-new way.

Yeah, it’s one of His goals that man sees other aspects

of His disposition, what He has and is,

whoa, what He has and is, what He has and is.
