573 One’s Duty Is a Created Being’s Vocation

Verse 1

Man’s duty has nothing to do with him

being blessed or being cursed.

His duty is what he should fulfill

without payment or conditions.


Pre-chorus

“Blessed” means to enjoy goodness

after man’s judged and made perfect.

“Cursed” means he who fails to change his disposition

will suffer from punishment.


Chorus

Man should fulfill his duty.

He should do what he can do,

whether he is blessed, whether he’s cursed.

This makes him a pursuer,

this makes him a pursuer of God.

This makes him a pursuer of God.


Verse 2

You should not do your duty for blessings,

nor refuse for fear of curse.

Duty ought to be fulfilled.

Your failure means that you’re rebellious.


Pre-chorus

“Blessed” means to enjoy goodness

after man’s judged and made perfect.

“Cursed” means he who fails to change his disposition

will suffer from punishment.


Chorus

Man should fulfill his duty.

He should do what he can do,

whether he is blessed, whether he’s cursed.

This makes him a pursuer,

this makes him a pursuer of God.

This makes him a pursuer of God.
