477 Take God’s Words as the Basis of Your Conduct

Chorus

God only hopes that you will not waste

all He gives, His painstaking efforts;

and you’ll know His heart,

treating His words as the base for how you live.


Verse 1

Whether it be words

you are willing to hear or not,

whether it be words

you enjoy accepting or find hard,

you must take them seriously.

Your casual, unconcerned ways

will upset or even disgust Him.


Chorus

God only hopes that you will not waste

all He gives, His painstaking efforts;

and you’ll know His heart,

treating His words as the base for how you live.


Verse 2

God very much hopes

that you all read His words thousands of times,

God very much hopes

that you even know His words by heart.

Only that way can you not

fail God’s expectations of you.

None of you live like this now.


Chorus

God only hopes that you will not waste

all He gives, His painstaking efforts;

and you’ll know His heart,

treating His words as the base for how you live.


Verse 3

All of you are immersed

in a debauched life of eating,

all of you are immersed

in just drinking your fill.

None of you use God’s words

to enrich your hearts and souls.

God thus concludes

that mankind’s true face is betrayal.


Pre-chorus

Man can betray God at any time,

no one can be absolutely faithful to His words.


Chorus

God only hopes that you will not waste

all He gives, His painstaking efforts;

and you’ll know His heart,

treating His words as the base for how you live.
