God has called us for His purpose

1
God has called us for His purpose,
His economy so glorious,
For which He was fully processed;
Consummated now is He!
As the Spirit, He indwells us;
As our God allotted portion,
Working out His full salvation,
Making us the same as He is.
  Oh, may a clear, controlling vision of
The Lord’s economy direct my heart,
And burn in me until my spirit’s wholly set afire!
With spirit strong and active we’ll press on
To consummate God’s goal—
New Jerusalem, Hallelujah!
2
Jesus lived the God-man pattern,
Set the way for us to follow,
He denied His natural man and
Was obedient unto death,
Once He was the only God-man;
Now we are His duplication.
As the many grains we’re blended
As His corporate reproduction.
3
Living out His resurrection,
Dying to the flesh and soul-life.
Living by the mingled spirit,
Natural man we will deny.
Now we’re living in the Body,
Every day we’re overcoming,
Striving for the peak of Zion,
Watching for our Lord’s appearing.
4
God and man will have one living,
Always in the mingled spirit;
We two are incorporated
One organic entity!
This the vision of the ages
Will control our daily living
That the Lord may have His Body
Shining as the holy city.

The original song is in Korean.

This song is so wonderful. I first sang it in a meeting at Houston at the Chinese-speaking Conference of the Reality of the Body of Christ. It just reminds us that God has CALLED US for His purpose and turn away from everything us and pursue Him and build up the Body, the New Jerusalem, Hallelujah!!!

Praise the lord for His economy! The Lord is our sweetest satisfaction! He is good and ever faithful! We must delight ourselves in the Lord no matter sadness comes along the way! For He is the genuine happiness!

I love this song! We are separated from the world for Lord's purpose and God's economy.

I love singing this song! I often find myself singing to the Lord as I do the dishes or drive to work... God and man will have one living / Always in the mingled spirit / We two are incorporated / One organic entity! Lord, we love You! Come back quickly!

I first heard this song at a college meeting at UCLA campus" country="and it touched me. This past Lord's Day the meeting was on God's Economy, and the ONEness the God wants us to have. I am in a hotel room on a business trip and found this website, clicked on "song of the day" and here it was again! This brings tears to my eyes and touched my spirit that another Saint halfway around the world just listened to it as well. Our life in Christ is amazing and we are ONE indeed!

This is the song I learnt to sing when I went to a students' training meeting for the first time and was saved there. I was but a small young boy then, this song really touched my little heart and still continues to do the same now!! I remember singing this song with top of my voice until my throat gave away. I sensed something really burning within.

The words in this song are just wonderful, fully revealing His heart's desire and purpose for men. This song just causes you to give yourself for the Lord's purpose by renewing our consecration to the Lord.

Both music and the verse are good. It's also a good match. Hard to find a good one like this.
