654 How to Accept the Truth

Verse 1

In what manner should you accept the truth?

For whatever corrupt disposition you have,

or which of the great red dragon’s venoms

has poisoned your nature, you acknowledge it,

you acknowledge when God’s words reveal it.

You accept it unconditionally.

You make no excuses, don’t pick and choose,

coming to know yourself based on what He says.


Pre-chorus 1

This is what it means to accept God’s words.


Chorus

If you’re wishing to be purified of corruption

and undergo a change in your life disposition,

then it’s essential that you have a love for the truth,

as well as the ability to accept the truth.


Verse 2

No matter what God says or how He says it,

no matter how His words may pierce your heart,

you can accept them as long as they’re the truth,

as long as they conform to reality.

You can submit to God’s words regardless

of how deeply you may understand them,

accept and obey the Holy Spirit’s light

that’s fellowshiped by your brothers and sisters.


Bridge

When such a person has pursued

the truth to a certain point,

they can obtain the truth and achieve

a transformed disposition.


Chorus

If you’re wishing to be purified of corruption

and undergo a change in your life disposition,

then it’s essential that you have a love for the truth,

as well as the ability to accept the truth.
