512 Only a Foundation of God’s Words Provides a Path of Practice

Verse 1

Only by pursuing truth can you gain

change in disposition, how you behave.

You must understand this completely.

If you don’t grasp the truth well enough,

you’ll easily go astray and slip up.

To grow in life, seek truth in all things.

Verse 2

Weigh up the value of all that you do.

Do things with meaning, not things with none.

Where there’s choice, let go what you can let go.

If you do things for some time then you find

you should let them go, then quickly do so.

In all you do, this rule should be followed.

Chorus

While seeking entry, each matter explore.

Fully reflect through the truth and God’s word.

So you will know which actions

fully conform with God’s will.

Verse 3

Then you can cast off what comes from self-will.

You’ll know how to act in line with God’s will,

and you’ll go out and do things this way.

It will feel like things all take their natural course;

all will seem easy as never before.

Those who have the truth do things this way.

Verse 4

Then you can show others that you have changed

your disposition, how you behave.

They’ll see the good deeds you have surely done,

that you live by principle, you do things right.

You know the truth, have human likeness.

Yes, God’s word has reaped results in people.

Chorus

While seeking entry, each matter explore.

Fully reflect through the truth and God’s word.

So you will know which actions

fully conform with God’s will.

Outro

No matter what issue arises,

seek to face it obeying the truth.

See what else is inside of you

that goes against the truth.
