186 Man Can Better Understand God Through God Incarnate

Verse 1

The images of the vague Gods

that sit in people’s hearts

can’t be exposed, cast off, expelled

exclusively by words.

In doing so, ultimately

it’d still be very hard

to dispel these deep-rooted things

from within people’s hearts.

Verse 2

Just the real God and His image

can replace these vague things

to allow people to know them.

That’s how the goal’s achieved.

Man sees God he sought in times past

is vague and is abstract.

It’s not Spirit’s direct guidance

that achieves this effect.

Pre-chorus 1

It’s not achieved by man’s teachings

but instead from God incarnate.

Chorus

Man can only know God

and see Him much more clearly

if God works among man

with His being and His image revealed.

This effect cannot be achieved by fleshly man.

God’s Spirit is also unable to accomplish this effect.

Verse 3

The notions of man are laid bare

when incarnate God works.

His normality and realness

counters the God obscure.

Without comparison to God in flesh,

man’s notions aren’t seen.

Without the contrast of real things,

vague things are not revealed.

Pre-chorus 2

Only God can do His own work,

no one can work on His behalf.

Chorus

Man can only know God

and see Him much more clearly

if God works among man

with His being and His image revealed.

This effect cannot be achieved by fleshly man.

God’s Spirit is also unable to accomplish this effect.

Bridge

No one is able to use words

to do this kind of work, to clarify this work.

Regardless how rich are man’s words,

he can’t make clear God’s realness

as well as His normalness.

Chorus

Man can only know God

and see Him much more clearly

if God works among man

with His being and His image revealed.

This effect cannot be achieved by fleshly man.

God’s Spirit is also unable to accomplish this effect.
