A Hymn: Lord, it is Time for Thee to Work

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Hymn


Oh Lord it is time for thee

To work mightily on earth

For the people of the earth

Have made void thy precepts

1. There 're many irregularities

On earth that we live in

Judges changeth 'ven judgments

Vindicating the guilty


2. Absurdities pervade the earth

For people choose idols

That have eyes which cannot 'ven see

Nor any sense of reasoning


3. The people have forsaken

The Holy One of Israel

The everlasting Father

Yahweh, I am that I am


4. The widow suffers unjustly

Widower 've no one to turn to

The orphans are not being helped

The needy 're dying of hunger


5. Arise, arise oh Dear Lord

Shake earth and the heavens

Prove thineself as the Mighty One

Let all dwelling on earth 'ven know
