84 To Love God Is My Duty
God You have been loving me to this day, but I have just discovered that You are lovely.
Reflecting on the past tears stream down my cheeks.
Believing in You why don’t I understand,
How to love You? How much precious time I have lost!
Enlightened by Your word today, I realize I lack too much in humanity,
My past pursuit was really full of extravagant desires,
I never cared for Your will, but always demanded from You,
And never thought of what I was created for.
God You humble Yourself in the flesh, and undergo all kinds of undeserved sufferings,
Working patiently to save me. I hate myself for being really so disobedient,
Conscienceless and senseless, that I have lost the duty of creation.
Today I have tasted Your loveliness; how can I still hesitate?
I will pursue to live out a meaningful life,
And regain the time lost in the past, to make up for my indebtedness,
And repay Your love faithfully; this is my duty.
