God Needs the Overcomers

1
God used John, the Baptist,
Who left his home and good past;
Left the religion of his age.
He turned from the oldness,
And spoke the Word with boldness,
“Repent and leave this crooked age.”
  God needs the overcomers,
’Our dear Lord Jesus’ lovers!
Make us those who live to turn the age!
God needs the overcomers,
’Our dear Lord Jesus’ lovers!
Make us those who consummate the age!
2
God called Saul of Tarsus,
For His own plan and purpose,
Who became Paul, the apostle;
He saw a heav’nly vision,
Where there is no division,
In the one Body of the Lord.
3
God called Timothy, now,
Like-souled with Paul, who knew how
To pray and be soaked in the Word;
His spirit fanned into flame,
Lord, make my spirit the same,
An overcoming man of God!
  Make us the overcomers,
Christ’s Bride, and God’s age-turners.
Make us those who consummate the age!

Recently enjoyed this hymn in All India National College and young working conference, Chennai. After singing this hymn I also have deepest plea to the Lord that He should gain overcomers who can fulfill His economy, His dreams and desire. Amen!!!

Wow.. I was so touched that this song is talking about a corporate matter. The Lord needs all the members of His body to be His overcomers! Save us from being individualistic Lord.

Make US the overcomers, Your bride and your age-turners. Make US those who consummate the age.

Amen. Make us Christ's bride and God's age turners. He is the one who lets us overcome, overcome the fall of man!!! I like this line in the hymn:

"Make us those who live to turn the age"

Oh Lord Jesus!
