540 Cast Off the Influence of Darkness to Be Praised by God

Intro

The influence of darkness is Satan deceiving,

corrupting, binding and controlling people.

The influence of Satan has an aura of death.

All those in its domain are doomed to perish.


Verse 1

After you truly pray to God, you turn your heart to Him.

You’re moved by God’s Spirit, willing to wholly give yourself.

That’s when you escape the influence of darkness.

If all that man does is pleasing to God,

if all that he does fits God’s requirements,

then he lives inside God’s words, under care of God.


Chorus

If you want to be praised by God,

you must escape Satan’s influence of darkness,

open your heart and turn it to God,

turn it to God completely.


Verse 2

If men can’t practice God’s words, always fooling Him

and being slipshod, they’re under influence of darkness.

Those whom God has not saved or who don’t believe in God

live within Satan’s domain, under influence of darkness.

Even those who believe may not all live in the light,

for they may not live inside God’s words, and may not obey God.


Chorus

If you want to be praised by God,

you must escape Satan’s influence of darkness,

open your heart and turn it to God,

turn it to God completely.


Bridge

Have you turned it to Him? Are your deeds praised by God?

Are they what God asks? Do they fit with the truth?

Examine yourself always, read God’s words intently,

lay your heart before Him, love Him with a true heart.

Expend yourself with devotion for God.

Such men will surely receive God’s praise.


Chorus

If you want to be praised by God,

you must escape Satan’s influence of darkness,

open your heart and turn it to God,

turn it to God completely.
