823 Only by Knowing God’s Deeds Can One Bear True Witness to Him

Verse 1

If you cannot see God’s deeds

among all that He’s created,

you cannot bear witness to them.

If you can’t bear witness to Him

but speak of the small God you know

who’s limited to your ideas,

who exists in your mind only,

God will never praise your faith.

Chorus

If you want to bear true witness to the one true God,

bear witness in a way that accords with His will,

you must know what He has and is from His deeds,

see God’s authority as He controls everything,

and see the truth of how He provides for all mankind.

Verse 2

If you only testify to God

in terms of what He gives to you,

enjoying all God’s graces,

and how you accept God’s ways,

accepting His discipline

and accepting His chastening,

that does not come close

to satisfying Him.

Chorus

If you want to bear true witness to the one true God,

bear witness in a way that accords with His will,

you must know what He has and is from His deeds,

see God’s authority as He controls everything,

and see the truth of how He provides for all mankind.

Bridge

If you only acknowledge

your daily needs and necessities

all come directly from God,

but you fail to see the truth—

He’s taken all He’s created

for the provision of mankind

as He leads all of mankind

by His rule over all things—

then you can never bear witness to God.

Chorus

If you want to bear true witness to the one true God,

bear witness in a way that accords with His will,

you must know what He has and is from His deeds,

see God’s authority as He controls everything,

and see the truth of how He provides for all mankind.
