God knows what he’s about

When God wants to drill a man,

And thrill a man, and skill a man,

When God wants to mould a man

To play the noblest part;

When he yearns with all his heart

To create so great and bold a man

That all the world shall be amazed,

Watch his methods, watch his ways;


How he ruthlessly perfects

Whom he royally elects!

How he hammers or hurts him

And with mighty blows converts him;

Into trial shapes of clay which

Only God can understand;


While his tortured heart is crying

And he lifts beseeching hands,

How he bends but never breaks

When his good he undertakes;


How he uses whom he chooses,

And with every purpose fuses,

By every act induces him

To try his splendour out –


God knows what he’s about.
