God is working his purpose out…. I was reminded of this old hymn last week…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 Godas the waters cover the sea All that we do can have no worth, unless God bless the deed;vainly we hope for the harvest-tide,…
