258 God’s Loveliness Is Always on My Mind
1 Oh God! You are humble and hidden in the flesh, You suffer man’s condemnation and slander, You endure all humiliation, yet You continue to express the truth to save mankind—You pour out Your heart’s blood to give all Your love to man. Your words are all the truth and the life, they cleanse and change us every single day. Experiencing Your words, we see so much of Your love. Oh God! Your loveliness is always on my mind.
2 Undergoing Your judgment, I’ve tasted Your love. Every word of Your judgment is like a sharp sword cutting open my nature so I have nowhere to hide, and I finally see that I am filled with satanic dispositions. Through Your judgment, I see that You are holy and righteous. I am corrupted so deeply that I don’t deserve to see Your face. I fall to the ground before You, willing to receive Your judgment. Oh God! Your loveliness is always on my mind.
3 It’s Your judgment that has saved me, the harshness of Your words masks Your earnest intentions, but holding on to my notions I haven’t the slightest obedience. I even abandon myself to despair, misunderstanding and complaining against You. Your words have comforted and encouraged me time after time, allowing me to climb back up out of negativity and weakness. I’ve seen how benevolent and beautiful Your disposition is. Oh God! Your loveliness is always on my mind.
4 Your words guide me through all adversity. Arrest by those demons is a daily threat; it’s You who helps me wipe away my tears of sadness and these painful nights are no longer so interminable. With Your love as my companion my confidence grows stronger. Through trials and refinement I’ve died and been reborn, I’ve understood the truth and cast off Satan’s influence. Oh God! Your loveliness is always on my mind. I will love You forever and always be by Your side.
