225 It’s God Who Has Saved Me
1 Incarnating and becoming human, going through so much wind and rain, You are humble and hidden among mankind—no one has ever known You. You judge and expose mankind’s deep corruption; You chastise my unrighteousness and rebelliousness. Though I’ve undergone such suffering and refinement, my corrupt disposition has been cleansed. I used to be arrogant and full of self-righteousness and conducted transactions with You—that was really so selfish and despicable, always wanting to gain the blessing of the kingdom of heaven in exchange for my effort and suffering. What kind of conscience or reason is that? I thought that with a bit of good behavior I could be in line with Your will, even dreaming of entering into the kingdom of heaven. I’m deeply corrupted, full of satanic dispositions. If I didn’t accept Your judgment, what would my outcome be?
2 Your judgment has cleansed me; Your work has transformed me, giving me true life. How could I not be grateful to You from my heart? Though I still have much rebelliousness and unrighteousness that needs to be cleansed, I have seen how much loveliness You possess. No matter how great the trials I won’t ever leave You. In the past I did everything for myself, and I never loved You, hurting You and bringing You pain, who knows how many tears You shed. Thinking of Your love for me, I hate this corrupt disposition of mine even more. I wish to pursue the truth to comfort Your heart! It’s You who has saved me. Without Your judgment, I wouldn’t be here today. I’ve basked in Your incredible grace—it truly is Your love and mercy. Oh God, it’s You who has saved me. Seeing that Your disposition is righteous, I love You from my heart. Oh God, it’s You who has saved me. I will always give thanks and praise for Your love!
