His wonders to perform, and yet
It is the will of God to let
His mind be known through prophecy.
If in the detail of His ways
We rest upon His grace and trust
We know His work, in its broad thrust,
Secures a people for His praise.
Standing before Christ's judgment seat
We shall observe the perfect skill
That chastened us to work God's will
When all that working is complete.
He will complete what He begun
And carried on by calm or storm:
It is His purpose to conform
Us to the image of God's Son!
