385 Judgment by the Word Better Represents God’s Authority

Verse 1

In the work God does in the last days,

the word’s mightier than signs, wonders;

its authority surpasses theirs.

It shows man’s corrupt dispositions.

You can’t recognize them on your own,

but when the word lays them bare before you,

you’ll discover them, not deny them,

and it will utterly convince you.


Pre-chorus 1

Isn’t this the word’s authority?

This is the result that is achieved

by the work of the word done today.

Yes, this is what God’s word can achieve.


Chorus

This shows God’s authority, power

isn’t just working signs, healing the sick,

and it’s not just casting out demons.

Rather, the judgment of the word is

more able to show God’s almighty

and represent His authority.


Verse 2

By this work of judgment, chastisement,

man will be able to fully see

his own filthy and corrupt substance,

and he’ll change completely and be clean.

It’s the one way man can be worthy

to return before the throne of God.

It’s through the word’s judgment and chastisement

that man’s able to be gained by God.


Pre-chorus 2

It is through the judgment of the word,

through its refinement and disclosing,

all of man’s notions, motives, and hopes,

what’s impure in his heart are revealed.


Chorus

This shows God’s authority, power

isn’t just working signs, healing the sick,

and it’s not just casting out demons.

Rather, the judgment of the word is

more able to show God’s almighty

and represent His authority.


Bridge

All the fruits you get are through the word,

greater than those through signs and wonders.

You see His glory, authority

not merely by His crucifixion,

healing the sick, casting out demons,

but more so by His words’ judgment.


Chorus

This shows God’s authority, power

isn’t just working signs, healing the sick,

and it’s not just casting out demons.

Rather, the judgment of the word is

more able to show God’s almighty

and represent His authority.
