|1||Workman of God! Oh, lose not heart,
But learn what God is like;
And in the darkest battlefield
Thou shalt know where to strike;
|2||Thrice blest is he to whom is given
The instinct that can tell,
That God is on the field when He
Is most invisible.
|3||Blest 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.
|4||Then 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.
|5||God’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.
|6||Muse on His justice, downcast soul:
Muse, and take better heart:
Back with thine angel to the field,
And bravely do thy part!
|7||For right is right, since God is God,
And right the day must win;
To doubt would be disloyalty,
To falter would be sin. Amen.
|2 Kings||6:16,17||16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. 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.
|Proverbs||15:3||The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
|Matthew||21:28||But 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 Corinthians||6:1||We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
