Workman of God O lose not heart




Workman of God! O lose not heart,
But learn what God is like;
And in the darkest battlefield
Thou shalt know where to strike.


[Ah!/For] God is other than we think;
His ways are far above
The heights of reason, and are reached
Only by childlike love.


He hides Himself so wondrously,
As though there were no God;
He is least seen when all the powers
Of ill are most abroad.


Thrice blest is he to whom is givín
The instinct that can tell
That God is on the field, when He
Is most invisible.


Blest too is he who can divine
Where real right doth lie,
And dares to take the side that seems
Wrong to manís blindfold eye.


Then learn to scorn the praise of men,
And learn to lose with God;
For Jesus won the world through shame,
And beckons thee His road.


God's glory is a wondrous thing,
Most strange in all its ways ;
And, of all things on earth, least like
What men agree to praise.


Muse on His justice, downcast soul,
Muse, and take better heart ;
Back with thine angel to the field,
And bravely do thy part.


For right is right, since God is God;
And right the day must win;
To doubt would be disloyalty,
To falter would be sin.
