Hymn For The New Year - 1



God is working His purpose out
As year succeeds to year
God is working His purpose out
And the time is drawing near
Nearer and nearer draws the time
The time that shall surely be
When the earth shall be filled
With the glory of God
As the waters cover the sea

From utmost east to utmost west
Where’er man’s foot have trod
By the mouth of many messengers
Goes forth the Voice of God
Give ear to Me ye Continents
Ye Isles give ear to Me
That
That the earth may be filled
With the glory of God
As the waters cover the sea

What can we do to work God’s work
To prosper and increase
The brotherhood of all mankind
The reign of the Prince of Peace
What can we do to hasten the time
The time that shall surely come
When
When the earth shall be filled
With the glory of God
As the waters cover the sea

March we forth in the strength of God
With the Banner of Christ unfurled
That the light of the glorious gospel
Of truth may shine throughout the world
Fight we the fight with sorrow and sin
To set their captives free
That the earth shall be filled
With the glory of God
As the waters cover the sea

All we can do is nothing worth
Unless God blesses the deed
Vainly we hope for the harvest tide
Till God gives life to the seed
Yet nearer and nearer draws the time
The time that shall surely be
When the earth shall be filled
With the glory of God

As the waters cover the sea
