God At Work

12 05 2010

 When God wants to drill a man

And thrill a man

And skill a man,

When God wants to mould a man

To play the noblest part

When He yearns with all His heart

To create so great

And bold a man

That all the world shall be amazed

Watch His methods

Watch His ways;

How He ruthlessly perfects

Whom He royally elects;

How He hammers him

And hurts him

And with mighty blows

Converts him

Into trial shapes of clay:

Which only God can understand;

While man’s tortured heart is crying

And he lifts beseeching hands

Yet God bends and never breaks

When man’s good He undertakes

How He uses whom He chooses

And with mighty power infuses him

With every act induces him

To try His splendour out

God knows what He’s about!


Quoted by Tony Sargent in “I Did It His Way” by Hugh Hill.
