801 Man Can Only Come to Love God by Knowing God

Verse 1

Knowing God is to be achieved

at the conclusion of God’s work;

it is the last requirement

God makes of mankind.

The reason why He does this

is for the sake of His final testimony.

It is in order that man may finally turn to Him

that He does this work.


Pre-chorus 1

Only by knowing God can man have true faith,

only by knowing God can he truly fear and obey God.

Those who do not know God will never arrive

at true obedience and reverence of God.


Chorus

Man can only come to love God by knowing God.

And no matter how he seeks or what he seeks to gain,

he must be able to achieve the knowledge of God.

Man can satisfy the heart of God in this way, God in this way.


Verse 2

Knowing God includes

knowing His disposition,

understanding His will

and knowing what He is.

Yet whichever aspect one comes to know

he must pay a price,

he must have the will to obey,

or he could not follow to the end.


Pre-chorus 2

The work of God is too incompatible

with the notions of man.

It’s hard for man to know what God is

and all that He does and says.

If man wishes to follow God yet is unwilling to obey Him,

then he will have gained nothing, no, nothing.


Chorus

Man can only come to love God by knowing God.

And no matter how he seeks or what he seeks to gain,

he must be able to achieve the knowledge of God.

Man can satisfy the heart of God in this way, God in this way.
