864 What Is the Great Pain That God Suffers?

Verse 1

There are some sympathetic with Christ’s plight

because there is a verse in the Bible that says:

“The foxes have holes, and the birds have nests;

but the Son of man has nowhere to lay His head.”

Verse 2

Hearing this they take it to heart and believe

it’s the greatest suffering of God, Christ.

But looking just at facts, God does not believe

these hardships to be suffering that He endures.

Pre-chorus 1

He’s never cried out against injustice

because of His suffering of the flesh;

He has never made man repay or reward Him. However,

Chorus

When God sees all man’s evil

and the corrupt lives that they live,

when He sees they can’t escape from Satan’s grasp,

living in sin and don’t know what truth is,

He loathes man more by the day,

and cannot tolerate their sins,

but still He must continue to endure all this.

This is God’s great suffering.

Verse 3

God can’t fully express His heart among followers,

and none of them can understand His pain.

No one even tries to understand, or comfort His heart,

which suffers year by year and day by day.

Verse 4

God wants nothing in return for all He’s given,

but His essence means He can’t abide man’s sin.

He hates and loathes their evil and corruption,

and so endures unending suffering.

Pre-chorus 2

Have any of you ever seen this?

Most likely, none of you could see,

because none of you can ever truly understand God.

Chorus

When God sees all man’s evil

and the corrupt lives that they live,

when He sees they can’t escape from Satan’s grasp,

living in sin and don’t know what truth is,

He loathes man more by the day,

and cannot tolerate their sins,

but still He must continue to endure all this.

This is God’s great suffering.

When God sees all man’s evil

and the corrupt lives that they live,

when He sees they can’t escape from Satan’s grasp,

living in sin and don’t know what truth is,

He loathes man more by the day,

and cannot tolerate their sins,

but still He must continue to endure all this.

This is God’s great suffering.
