“After the counsel of God’s will”

After the counsel of God’s will

GL Groenewald (2020)

Introduction:

To everything there is a season;

A time to every purpose under heaven;

A time to every purpose under heaven.

Spoken Word:

Again, I saw,

That under the sun

The race is not to the swift,

Nor the battle to the strong,

Nor bread to the wise,

Nor riches to the intelligent,

Nor favour to those with knowledge;

But God’s purposes and His appointed times

Happen to them all!

Chorus:

It’s all after the counsel of God’s will,

He works all things He predestined in His plan;

There’s an appointed time,

An appointed place,

For everything under the sun;

After the counsel of God’s will.

1:

God’s the only Creator, He’s the Cause of everything;

All the good and the evil – they are serving the King;

He planned all things to be as before written in His book;

From beginning to the end, no-one escapes His hook!

Chorus:

It’s all after the counsel of God’s will,

He works all things He predestined in His plan;

There’s an appointed time,

An appointed place,

For everything under the sun;

After the counsel of God’s will.

2:

Man’s will is not free as he wants to believe,

It’s not of him who wills nor of him who achieves,

The steps of man are not directed by himself,

Man is snared, he’s God’s prisoner in every place!

Chorus:

It’s all after the counsel of God’s will,

He works all things He predestined in His plan;

There’s an appointed time,

An appointed place,

For everything under the sun;

After the counsel of God’s will.

Bridge:

Forgetting those things which are behind,

Reaching for the things which are ahead,

Pressing toward the mark for the prize,

Of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus!

Chorus:

It’s all after the counsel of God’s will,

He works all things He predestined in His plan;

There’s an appointed time,

An appointed place,

For everything under the sun;

After the counsel of God’s will.

Ending:

Beloved work out your own salvation

Work it out with fear and trembling;

For it is God who works in you, 

Both to will and to do

Of His good pleasure;

Both to will and to do

Of His good pleasure;

Both to will and to do

Of His good pleasure.

About 4windkoinonia

Want let op julle roeping, broeders: julle is nie baie wyse na die vlees nie, nie baie magtiges, nie baie edeles nie; maar wat dwaas is by die wêreld, het God uitverkies om die wyse te beskaam; en wat swak is by die wêreld, het God uitverkies om wat sterk is, te beskaam; en wat onedel is by die wêreld en wat verag is, het God uitverkies, en wat niks is nie, om wat iets is, tot niet te maak, sodat geen vlees voor Hom sou roem nie. (1Kor 1:26-29)
