The Hope Of Job

 BY

WM. WEST
 

Though worms destroy this body, Yet in my flesh I shall see my God
The Hope of Job was written for Saints beneath the sod
For behind the gates in the bosom of Abraham
The captives did wait the mystery of The Lamb

For though they were pardoned and escaped the fires of Hell
And received not the torments of the rich man nor Jezebel
Yet no flight could be taken for the blood of bulls could not clear
The souls of the captives, till the Man Child did appear

Then the war did begin from the manger to the tree
Would the gates swing open to set the captives free?
And so the battle raised using Pharisee and Scribe
To overthrow the God man Judas took a bribe

So from Pilateís pavement onward to Calvary
They crucified the Saviour with shameful cruelty
Who shall contend with me said the Captain on the hill
Let us stand together as I do my Fatherís will

Yet for the joy set before him he endured the tree
The sins of the captives upon him Jobís liberty
At last he cried my Father my spirit do receive
For his blood had cleared the captives that he would retrieve

The story does not end here; Death still had its sting
The grave still a foe to Jesus the king
For all that went before the law of sin did shame
But Jesus had no sin within, so Death had no claim

For he that ascended, descended with the keys
And open up the gates and set the captives free
Though worms destroyed their bodies they did see their God
The Hope of Job was written for the saints beneath the sod

John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
