901 God Long Ago Determined Man’s Fate

Verse 1

As far as fate is concerned,

everyone is independent.

As far as fate is concerned,

everyone has his or her own fate.

So no one’s parents

can stave off one’s fate in life

or exert the slightest influence

on the role one plays.


Chorus

Nothing except the predestination of the Creator

has a bearing on a person’s fate.

No one can control what kind of future one will have,

predetermined long before, not even parents have a say.


Verse 2

The family into which one is born

is a precondition for fulfilling one’s mission.

The environment in which one grows up

is a precondition just as well.

They do not in any way

determine a person’s fate

or the kind of destiny

amidst which their mission is fulfilled.


Verse 3

And so no one’s parents can

assist in fulfilling one’s mission.

And no one’s relatives can help

one assume one’s role.

How one accomplishes one’s mission

and in what environment one plays their role

are determined by their fate,

which no one can control.


Chorus

Nothing except the predestination of the Creator

has a bearing on a person’s fate.

No one can control what kind of future one will have,

predetermined long before, not even parents have a say.


Verse 4

No other objective conditions can influence

one’s mission which is predestined by the Creator alone.

All people become mature in unique environments,

the way that they grow up, all on their own.


Chorus

Nothing except the predestination of the Creator

has a bearing on a person’s fate.

No one can control what kind of future one will have,

predetermined long before, not even parents have a say.


Bridge

Step by step, they set off down their own roads.

Step by step, they fulfill destinies planned for them.

Step by step, they enter the vast sea of people.

Step by step, they assume their own posts in life.

Step by step, they fulfill their responsibilities,

all for the sake of the Creator’s predestination.

Step by step, they do it all involuntarily,

all for the sake of the Creator’s sovereignty.

God long ago determined man’s fate.


Chorus

Nothing except the predestination of the Creator

has a bearing on a person’s fate.

No one can control what kind of future one will have,

predetermined long before, not even parents have a say.
