1. God is working His purpose out
    As year suceeds 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 God
    As the waters cover the sea.
  2. From utmost east to utmost west,
    Where’er man’s foot hath trod,
    By the mouth of many messengers
    Goes forth the voice of God;
    Give ear to me, ye confinents,
    Ye isles, give ear to me,
    That the earth shall be filled with the glory of God
    As the waters cover the sea.
  3. March we forth in the strength of God
    With the banner of Christ unfurled,
    That the light of the glorious gospel of truth
    May shine throughout the world:
    Fight we the fight with sorrow and sin
    To set their captives free,
    That the earth shall be filled with the glory of God
    As the waters cover the sea.
  4. All we can do is nothing worth
    Unless God blesses the deed;
    Vainly we hope for the harvest tide
    Till God gives life to teh 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.
