1. God is working his purpose out
As year succeeds to year:
God is working his purpose out:
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.

2. From the east to the utmost west,
Where-ever foot has trod,
By the mouths of his messengers
Goes forth the voice of God;
Give ear to me, you continents,
You isles, give ear to me,
That the earth may be filled with the glory of God
As the waters cover the sea.

3. March we forth in the strength of God,
The flag of Christ unfurled,
That the light of the gospel of truth
May shine throughout the world:
Fight we the fight with sin and pain
To set their captives free,
That the earth may be filled with the glory of God
As the waters cover the sea.

4. All we do is but worthless toil
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.
