741 Fear God to Gain His Protection

Verse 1

Being practical in how you behave and act,

not departing from prayer in all you do,

coming often before God, not straying from Him—

these are the most fundamental of all.

Verse 2

However great your life, stature,

how much truth’s reality you’ve entered,

in your heart you can’t leave God,

and you cannot stray from Him.

Pre-chorus

Without prayer, God’s words and gathering,

how can you not grow far from God?

Without God in your heart,

you’ve already strayed too far.

Chorus

Not straying from God in your heart

and being able to come before Him at all times

is an attitude of reverence toward Him.

Only when you possess it can God protect you

from taking the wrong path, from taking the wrong path.

Verse 3

What happens to all those who stray?

They’ll be used and taken captive by Satan,

make mistakes, rebel, interrupt.

How frightful it will be!

Chorus

Not straying from God in your heart

and being able to come before Him at all times

is an attitude of reverence toward Him.

Only when you possess it can God protect you

from taking the wrong path, from taking the wrong path.
