596 Man Must Keep to His Duty

Verse 1

It’s hard to progress down this path

if people don’t have any faith.

Now it’s clear to all

that God’s work and people’s notions

aren’t in line with each other.

God has spoken many words

and He’s done so much work;

they’re out of line with human notions.


Pre-chorus 1

And this requires people

to have faith and resolve,

so that they can stand by

what they’ve seen and gained

from their experience.


Chorus

Whatever God does in people,

they must uphold what they possess,

and be sincere in front of God,

and stay devoted to Him to the very end.

That’s mankind’s duty.

People must uphold what they should do.


Verse 2

Faith in God requires obedience

and experience of His work.

God has performed so much work;

it could be said that for people

it’s all perfection, all refinement,

and even more, all chastisement.

Not a single step of God’s work

has been in line with human notion.


Pre-chorus 2

What people enjoy is God’s harsh words.

When He comes they should enjoy

His wrath and majesty.

But no matter how harsh His words are,

He comes to save and perfect man.


Chorus

Whatever God does in people,

they must uphold what they possess,

and be sincere in front of God,

and stay devoted to Him to the very end.

That’s mankind’s duty.

People must uphold what they should do.


Outro

As creatures, people should fulfill the duties

that they ought to, and stand witness for God

in the midst of refinement,

upholding the witness they should bear,

and it should be a resounding witness

in every single trial.

This is being an overcomer, an overcomer.
