628 Give Up Religious Notions to Be Perfected by God

Verse 1

If you accept the judgment and chastisement

of the word of God, drop religious ways,

do not use old notions to measure God’s new words,

then you will have a future.

But if you cling to the old things, treasuring them,

there’s no way to be saved, God will never notice you.

In God’s work and word, He does not refer

to the old ways of history and things before.

Chorus

If you want to be made perfect, you must let go of past things.

What was right or done by God must also be put aside.

Even if it was the work of the Spirit, you must put it aside.

This is what God requires. All must be renewed.

Verse 2

God is always new and never old.

He does not cling to His old words or follow any rules.

As a human being, you cling to past things,

rigidly applying them as formulas,

but all the while, God does not work the same

as He did before, aren’t your words and actions disruptive?

If you cling to the past, aren’t you the enemy of God?

Are you willing to let your life go to ruin over old things?

Chorus

If you want to be made perfect, you must let go of past things.

What was right or done by God must also be put aside.

Even if it was the work of the Spirit, you must put it aside.

This is what God requires. All must be renewed.

Bridge

These old things will make you one who obstructs God’s work.

Is that the kind of person that you want to be?

If you truly do not want that, then stop what you are doing.

Turn around, start again, God won’t recall your past service.

Chorus

If you want to be made perfect, you must let go of past things.

What was right or done by God must also be put aside.

Even if it was the work of the Spirit, you must put it aside.

This is what God requires. All must be renewed.
