260 For Man’s Life, God Endures All Suffering

Verse 1

No human has seen the secrets

of how man’s life got started

and how he continues to live.

Only God, who understands this,

endures the hurt from mankind,

who receives everything but gives no thanks.


Pre-chorus

Man takes for granted what life brings,

so of course he betrays God, extorts God, forgets God.


Chorus

God endures all pain for the sake of His plan,

not for the flesh of man, but for the life of man,

not to take back the flesh, but the life from His breath.

This is His plan, all for the life of man.


Verse 2

Could God’s plan be so important?

Could man, who God gave life to,

be that important as well?

God’s plan is important,

but the being He made with His hand

exists for one purpose, for God’s plan.


Bridge

Therefore, God can’t lay His plan to waste

out of hatred for the human race.


Chorus

God endures all pain for the sake of His plan,

not for the flesh of man, but for the life of man,

not to take back the flesh, but the life from His breath.

This is His plan, all for the life of man.

God endures all pain for the sake of His plan,

not for the flesh of man, but for the life of man,

not to take back the flesh, but the life from His breath.

This is His plan, all for the life of man.
