819 Do You Know the Purpose and Meaning of God’s Work?

Verse 1

Do you truly know why you believe in God?

The purpose of His work and your duty?

Do you know God’s glory and His testimony?

If you don’t have both, you’ve been left behind.

The know-it-alls are thorns in His eye,

useless obstacles in God’s house,

tares to be winnowed out in His work.

God has long abhorred them.


Chorus

You should now know how to satisfy God

and set on the right track in faith in Him.

God desires your loyalty and obedience,

your love and testimony.

If you know not how to love and bear witness,

you should bring to Him your all,

turn over your only treasures:

your loyalty and obedience.


Verse 2

Often God’s wrath befalls all

bereft of testimony,

His rod never strays; they’re without blessings,

turned over to the evil one.

Their chastisement will be much worse

than that of foolish women.

God bundles all wheat and weeds

in His work today.


Pre-chorus

The tares shall be winnowed

in the time of His winnowing.

The wheat will be gathered and stored,

the weeds will be burned and made into dust.


Chorus

You should now know how to satisfy God

and set on the right track in faith in Him.

God desires your loyalty and obedience,

your love and testimony.

If you know not how to love and bear witness,

you should bring to Him your all,

turn over your only treasures:

your loyalty and obedience.


Bridge

God’s work is to bind all men into bundles

and fully conquer them.

Then He’ll begin winnowing away

to reveal the end of man.


Chorus

You should now know how to satisfy God

and set on the right track in faith in Him.

God desires your loyalty and obedience,

your love and testimony.

If you know not how to love and bear witness,

you should bring to Him your all,

turn over your only treasures:

your loyalty and obedience.
