IN GOD'S GOODNESS
In God’s goodness*, always abounding.
He keeps us within His compassion’s surrounding...
While in His Word we are abiding.
Within His goodness of tender mercy
The Lord attends to our prayer of faith’s fervency...
Exhorting us to have HIM as our sufficiency.
Along His goodness with soul-quickening power
Our Saviour assures our divine nature-standing of heavenly tower...
That makes our faith produces fruits from trust's blossom-flower.
Trusting His grace-goodness with heartfelt sincerity
We can strive toward holiness by the Holy Spirit’s authority...
Doing what's right against evil's hostility.
By His goodness- pardon that’s readily available
Almighty Father forgives our confessed sins, making us virtuously favourable...
To testify about His kindness, wondrously affable.
Through His sanctification’s goodness that purges our guilt away
We overcome feelings of worthlessness’ sway...
Hence, we're lifted up by the Providence cheering way.
Called into His service-partnership midst His unlimited goodness
Victoriously can we labour for Him, our Master of supreme greatness
Also work with HIM, our King and Friend with grateful earnestness.
*2Chronicles 6:41 Now therefore arise, O LORD God, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength: let thy priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness.
