116 Only Honest People Have a Human Likeness

Verse 1

I once pursued fortune and fame.

My principles were cast away;

I lied for a living.

My conscience was gone,

with no thought for morals.

Integrity, dignity, all of these things

meant nothing to me.

Verse 2

I lived to quench my ever-growing

worldly passions: greed and desire.

Wallowing there in a mire of sin

with a heavy and uneasy heart,

I couldn’t escape this endless darkness.

Earthly riches, short-lived pleasures

could not hide the void inside.

Pre-chorus

Tell me why it’s so hard

to have integrity in life.

What kind of world is this

where man is so cunning?

Tell me who can save me.

Chorus

I heard the voice of God,

and I returned before Him.

God’s words of truth cleanse my corruption.

God’s words of judgment, chastisement

are my companions for life.

Accepting God’s scrutiny

brings peace to my heart.

No more cheating or deception now,

and I live in the light.

Honest, with an open heart,

I live out human likeness at last.

Verse 3

I benefit from reading His words,

reading God’s words every day.

I understand so many truths,

having rules of human conduct.

I’ve been through trials, I’ve seen His face.

Within His words, I’ve gained new life,

so I can be an honest person.

Chorus

I heard the voice of God,

and I returned before Him.

God’s words of truth cleanse my corruption.

God’s words of judgment, chastisement

are my companions for life.

Accepting God’s scrutiny

brings peace to my heart.

No more cheating or deception now,

and I live in the light.

Honest, with an open heart,

I live out human likeness at last.

Outro

I am forever thankful

to God’s love and God’s salvation!

I am forever thankful to Almighty God!
