It was God's purpose that He should secure
A universe that satisfied His heart,
And He has operated to ensure
Christ is its Head - yet men may have their part.
And if we are to enjoy the privilege
God had in mind before the world began
It only can be as our hearts engage
In more communion with the heavenly Man;
And if we are to be for God's delight
And have our blessings firmly in our grip
We must be those whose pathways are in light,
Finding in it the joys of fellowship.
But if I laxly let my light grow dim
Or outward pressure terrify, or shock,
We know God's purpose is secure in Him,
And that His church is founded on the rock.
