968 God’s Disposition Is Holy and Flawless

Verse 1

When the Ninevites fasted and wore sack and ashes,

God’s heart began to thaw.

He’d angrily proclaimed He’d destroy their city

only a moment before.

Once they had confessed and performed repentant acts,

God’s anger transformed to mercy and tolerance.

Chorus

God’s disposition shows wrath, mercy, tolerance

according to man’s repentance and conduct.

All He expresses is pure and direct,

its substance distinct from all in creation.

Verse 2

God’s fierce wrath when faced with people’s evil acts

is a wrath which is not flawed.

His heart is moved in response to men’s repentance—

it brings His change of heart.

When moved to show mercy and tolerance to men,

all God expresses is clean, pure, unblemished.

Pre-chorus

God’s tolerance is pure tolerance. God’s mercy is pure mercy.

Chorus

God’s disposition shows wrath, mercy, tolerance

according to man’s repentance and conduct.

All He expresses is pure and direct,

its substance distinct from all in creation.

Bridge

God’s principles behind His actions

are free from any blemishes or flaws,

as are actions He takes and decisions He makes

and every one of His ideas and thoughts.

Chorus

God’s disposition shows wrath, mercy, tolerance

according to man’s repentance and conduct.

All He expresses is pure and direct,

its substance distinct from all in creation.
