897 God Wishes to Save Man to the Greatest Extent Possible

Verse 1

During God’s work of salvation,

He will save all those He can save

to the greatest extent possible,

and He will discard no one.

But all those who are unable to

change their disposition,

or to obey God completely

become objects for punishment.

Chorus

All who accept the conquering of words

will have many chances for salvation.

God’s salvation will show them

His utmost leniency and tolerance.

If people turn back from the wrong path,

if they repent, God will give them

the opportunity to obtain His salvation.

Verse 2

This stage of work, the work of words,

just opens up to people

all the ways and mysteries

that they do not understand.

This helps man know the will of God

and God’s requirements of man.

So they can practice God’s words

and change their disposition.

Chorus

All who accept the conquering of words

will have many chances for salvation.

God’s salvation will show them

His utmost leniency and tolerance.

If people turn back from the wrong path,

if they repent, God will give them

the opportunity to obtain His salvation.

Verse 3

God just uses words to do His work.

He does not punish people

because of their little rebellion,

’cause now’s the time for salvation.

If all who rebel were punished,

none would have the chance to be saved.

They would all be punished

and would fall into Hades.

The words judging man allow them

to know themselves and obey God,

not for them to be punished

by the judgment of these words.

Chorus

All who accept the conquering of words

will have many chances for salvation.

God’s salvation will show them

His utmost leniency and tolerance.

If people turn back from the wrong path,

if they repent, God will give them

the opportunity to obtain His salvation.

Bridge

When people first rebel against God,

He has no desire to put them to death,

but instead does all He can to save them.

If one has no room for salvation,

God will cast them aside.

He is slow to punish

since He wants to save

all those who can be saved.

Chorus

All who accept the conquering of words

will have many chances for salvation.

God’s salvation will show them

His utmost leniency and tolerance.

If people turn back from the wrong path,

if they repent, God will give them

the opportunity to obtain His salvation.

Outro

He judges, enlightens,

guides people using only words,

not striking them down with a rod.

Using words to save is the purpose,

meaning of this final stage of work.
