How many creatures are out there now
living, reproducing in this universe,
following the law of life over and over,
and always adhering to the one constant rule.
Those who die take with them the stories of the living,
the living repeat the same tragedy of the dead.
Mankind can’t help but ask: Why do we live and die?
Who rules this world, who created this human race?
Was mankind really made by Mother Nature?
Is mankind really in control of their own fate?
Oh, mankind does not know, oh, mankind does not know
who is the Sovereign of all in the universe,
much less do they know the start, future of mankind.
So mankind merely lives, amidst this law, perforce.
No one can escape it and no one can change it,
for among all things and all in the heavens
there’s One from everlasting to everlasting
who holds sovereignty over everything.
He is the One who has never been seen by man
and the One whom mankind has never ever known,
in whose existence mankind has never believed,
yet He breathed life to man’s ancestors, gave life to man.
He is the One who supplies, nourishes man’s living,
and up to this present day He guides humans.
He’s the One on whom man depends for survival.
He rules all things, living beings in the universe.
He commands four seasons, calls forth wind, frost, snow, rain.
He gives mankind sunshine and He makes the night come.
It was He who laid out the heavens and the earth,
gave man mountains, lakes, rivers, living things in them.
His deed’s everywhere, His power is everywhere.
Everywhere you’ll find His wisdom, authority.
And each of these laws and rules reflects His deeds,
all of them reveal His wisdom, authority.
Who’s able to discharge themselves from His designs?
Who can exempt themselves from His sovereignty?
Everything exists beneath His searching gaze,
and all things live beneath His sovereignty.
His deeds and His power leave all of mankind
with no other choice but to acknowledge Him,
He really does exist, He really does exist,
and He truly holds sovereignty over all things.
Mankind lives and dies under the eyes of God,
mankind also lives for the management of God.
And when their eyes close for the final time,
that is also for the very same management.
Over and over again, man comes, goes, back, forth,
it’s all part of God’s designs and sovereignty.
The management of God has never ever stopped,
it’s always going forward and has never ceased.
He will make mankind aware of His existence,
trust His rule, see His deeds, return to His kingdom.
It’s His plan, and the work He has been conducting
for thousands of years, for several millenniums.
