The Lord His Work Will Finish

The Lord His Work Will Finish

Far from complete I find my life;
The work has just begun.
Not yet am I the spotless wife,
The image of His Son
 
I could be quite disheartened now
To see how much I lack.
Despair to win I could allow,
Be tempted to turn back.
 
But then a gracious promise word
Grants me hope anew.
My Lord will never be deterred
Until the work is through.
 
The promise is persistent grace
To teach me more each day.
I in anticipation brace
What will He send my way?
 
The Lord is always faithfully
Molding, guiding, forming me.
‘Till every part upright is bent
He will not rest content.
 
I grow excited with the thought
Though grasped it fully I have not.
Beyond my hopes and dreams conceived,
Rich treasures yet will be received.
 
Storehouses many God has full
Of riches ready to bestow.
To Him each day I’ll look in trust
That by His word He must.
 
This work remaining is not mine;
It is a work divine.
His love and power do not diminish.
The Lord His work will finish.

To me it is a greatly exciting thing when I think about the many new glories that Christ has yet to teach me. At various points in my life I have stopped and realized that God has taught me much in recent days. I sometimes then wonder what else might be next. I don’t see what will be the next great thing to learn, but I have come to realize that there will always be something more for me to learn, and that usually something large and wonderful. God’s treasure houses really are full and magnificent. The spiritual blessings that are in Christ truly are treasures beyond compare for us. What could we hope for more and better than what God has for us in His blessed Son Jesus Christ?
