687 Failure Is the Best Opportunity to Know Yourself

Verse 1

In your faith, learn to

experience God’s work and submit to God.

Submitting to Him is a truth,

and is required of human beings.

If you can seek in the direction

of submitting to God,

then you’ve set foot

on the right path of truly believing.


Pre-chorus 1

Having failed and fallen time and again,

having been exposed is not a bad thing.

Whether you’ve been dealt with, pruned or exposed,

remember always:


Chorus

Being exposed is not being condemned;

it’s the best chance to know yourself.

It can bring change for your life experience.

Without this, you won’t possess

the chance, the context or condition

to know the truth of your corruption.


Verse 2

If you can know the things in you,

including all that’s concealed,

things deep within, hard to perceive, unearth,

then that’s a good thing.

To come to truly know yourself

is the best opportunity

for you to mend your ways

and thus become a new human being.


Pre-chorus 2

Once you truly know yourself, you will see

to have truth as one’s life is precious indeed.

You’ll thirst for truth, enter reality.

This is such a great thing!


Chorus

Being exposed is not being condemned;

it’s the best chance to know yourself.

It can bring change for your life experience.

Without this, you won’t possess

the chance, the context or condition

to know the truth of your corruption.


Bridge

If you grab this opportunity,

reflect on yourself earnestly

and gain true knowledge of yourself

whenever you fail or fall down,

you will be able to stand back up

in weakness and negativity.

Once you’ve crossed this threshold,

you can have great growth, enter truth’s reality.


Chorus

Being exposed is not being condemned;

it’s the best chance to know yourself.

It can bring change for your life experience.

Without this, you won’t possess

the chance, the context or condition

to know the truth of your corruption.
