God eternal has a purpose

1
God eternal has a purpose,
Formed in His eternal past,
Spreading to eternal future;
’Twixt these ends all time is cast.
For with time there is the process,
Time for His accomplishment;
And in time we’re merely travelers—
For eternity we’re meant.
2
God would have a group of people
Built together in His plan,
Blended, knit, coordinated
As His vessel—one new man.
God would come into this vessel
With His nature, life and ways,
Mingling Spirit with our spirits
For His joy and to His praise.
3
God has worked in three directions
For His plan so marvelous:
As the Father, Son, and Spirit
To dispense Himself to us!
All creation gives the setting—
Heav’n and earth are for this plan;
’Tis for this God made a body,
Soul and spirit—three-part man.
4
As the center, as the kernel,
Of God’s plan our spirit is;
Calling on the name of Jesus
Makes our spirit one with His.
From the center to circumference
God would saturate each part;
Feeling, mind, and will renewing,
Making home in all our heart.
5
Thus in life we’re built together,
Then in love we’re knit as one;
God is now His plan fulfilling,
Finishing what He’s begun.
Lord, increase Thyself within us
That we might be built by Thee
Into that great corporate vessel
Filled with God exclusively.
6
As the product, the fulfillment,
Will the church in glory stand,
Consummation of the purpose
In eternal ages planned.
God will have His corporate vessel,
All His glory to contain;
Lord, we’re wholly for Thy purpose
All Thy goal in us attain.

In this whole world only Your eternal purpose will prevail. Lord, we know that You are now fulfilling Your plan and even finishing it. Lord, may we be a vessel unto honor who can be one with You on carrying out Your eternal purpose ;-)

We recently sang this hymn at a dear sister of the Lord passing away. The sister's husband chose this song because she just loved the song so much. It was very encouraging to everyone to sing this hymn.

Hallelujah for God's eternal purpose! Thank You Lord for choosing us for this Divine Revelation! Oh how I praise Him for revealing Himself in this song.

Thank you saints of the Most High God to put this hymnal on line.

In Him, By Him and for Him:

Praise the Lord for His eternal purpose, His economy! He's dispensing Himself in Christ, through the Spirit as Life into us to be a great corporate vessel filled with God alone as its content! When this is expressed on the earth, this will issue in the Kingdom, which eventually, after a 1000 year reign of Christ and His redeemed and transformed people, will consummate in the New Jerusalem! Thank you Lord Jesus for this, God's eternal purpose!
