362 God Allows No Created Being to Cheat Him

Verse 1

Since you’ve resolved to serve God,

He will not let you go.

God hates evil and is

jealous for humanity.

Since your words are on the altar,

God won’t let you run off,

nor will He tolerate

your serving two masters.


Pre-chorus 1

Did you think you could love another

after giving God your word?

Did you think you could casually

make vows with your tongue?

How could He allow people

to make a fool of Him this way?


Chorus

God will have you serve Him once again,

picking up your past determination.

He will not tolerate any creation

that cheats Him.


Verse 2

How could you swear oaths

by the throne of the Most High?

Did you think your oaths had passed away?

Though flesh might pass, your oaths do not.

God will condemn you through them.

But you think you can place words before Him

and serve evil spirits in your hearts.


Pre-chorus 2

Could His wrath tolerate

such animals that cheat Him?

God must carry out His decrees

and take back such false pious ones

to “wait on” Him like oxen,

at the mercy of His sword.


Chorus

God will have you serve Him once again,

picking up your past determination.

He will not tolerate any creation

that cheats Him.


Bridge

Did you think you could just

make requests and lie to Him?

Did you think God had not seen

your words and deeds?

How could your words and deeds

not have been in His view?

How could He let people

deceive Him like that?


Chorus

God will have you serve Him once again,

picking up your past determination.

He will not tolerate any creation

that cheats Him.
