259 How to Be Perfected

Verse 1

If you want to be perfected by God,

just hitting the streets is not enough,

nor is expending yourself for God.

You must possess much to be perfected by God.

When you face suffering, you must be able

to not consider flesh, not complain against God.

When God hides Himself, you must have the faith to follow,

maintaining your love, don’t let it fade or die.


Chorus

If you want to be used and perfected by God,

you must be possessed of everything:

the will to suffer, faith and endurance,

obedience, and experience of God’s work,

gaining a grasp of His will, considerate of God’s sorrow.

Each refinement that you experience

requires your faith and love.


Verse 2

No matter what God does, you must accept His design.

Curse your flesh before you complain against Him.

Please God when in trials, even if you weep

or lose what you love; this is true love and faith.

No matter your stature, you must possess true faith,

the will to suffer and to forsake the flesh.

You should be willing to endure pain and loss

to satisfy the will of God.


Bridge

You must have a heart to feel regret

that you weren’t able to satisfy God in the past.

Nothing can be lacking, so God can perfect you.

If you lack these things, you cannot be perfected!


Chorus

If you want to be used and perfected by God,

you must be possessed of everything:

the will to suffer, faith and endurance,

obedience, and experience of God’s work,

gaining a grasp of His will, considerate of God’s sorrow.

Each refinement that you experience

requires your faith and love.
