122 Love God to Live in the Light

Verse 1

The world is dark and so perilous,

God’s words in the last days show true light.

By eating and drinking God’s word I gain the truth,

and I see the true way in the world.

I experience God’s words and I see the light,

I see that the truth is so real.

God’s words are man’s life;

gaining the truth glorifies God.

Chorus

I obey God in spirit and in truth,

I perform my duty well and bear witness.

To love God is profoundly meaningful,

and I shall forever live in the light.

Verse 2

Judgment and chastisement are so precious,

I cannot do without pruning and dealing.

Trials and refinement expose people;

change is gained through suffering great pain.

Practicing the truth is the root;

loving God is the most real.

A heart that doesn’t love God betrays God,

a true love for God earns His praise.

Chorus

I obey God in spirit and in truth,

I perform my duty well and bear witness.

To love God is profoundly meaningful,

and I shall forever live in the light.

Bridge

Rely on faith to experience trials,

and lean on the truth to stand witness.

Hardships and tests reveal one’s true heart;

without the truth all will be in vain.

Chorus

I obey God in spirit and in truth,

I perform my duty well and bear witness.

To love God is profoundly meaningful,

and I shall forever live in the light.

I shall forever live in the light.
