1Workman of God! Oh, lose not heart,
But learn what God is like;
And in the darkest battlefield
Thou shalt know where to strike;
2Thrice blest is he to whom is given
The instinct that can tell,
That God is on the field when He
Is most invisible.
3Blest too is he who can divine
Where real right doth lie,
And dares to take the side that seems
Wrong to man’s blindfold eye.
4Then learn to scorn the praise of men,
And learn to lose with God;
For Jesus won the world through pain,
And beckons thee His road.
5God’s glory is a wondrous thing,
Most strange in all its ways,
And, of all things in earth, least like
What men agree to praise.
6Muse on His justice, downcast soul:
Muse, and take better heart:
Back with thine angel to the field,
And bravely do thy part!
7For right is right, since God is God,
And right the day must win;
To doubt would be disloyalty,
To falter would be sin. Amen.

And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
Proverbs15:3The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
Matthew21:28But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
2 Corinthians6:1We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
