283 The Life of Man Is Entirely Under God’s Sovereignty

Verse 1

If a person only believes in fate

but they are unable to know,

if a person only believes in fate

but they are unable to recognize,

if a person only believes in fate

but they are unable to submit,

unable to accept the Creator’s

sovereignty over man’s fate,


Pre-chorus

their life would be a tragedy,

their life would be lived in vain,

their life would be a void,

they can’t submit to His dominion,

they can’t become a created being

in the truest sense of the phrase,

and enjoy the Creator’s approval,

enjoy it through the days.


Chorus

A person who knows God’s sovereignty,

they should be in an active state.

A person who sees God’s sovereignty,

they should not be in a passive state.

While accepting all things are fated,

they’ve a right definition of fate:

The life of man is entirely

under God’s sovereignty.


Bridge

When one recollects the phases of one’s journey,

when one looks back upon the road one has walked,

one sees that at every step God was guiding one’s path,

whether one’s road was smooth or whether one’s road was hard.

God was planning it out with meticulous arrangements.

One’s been led to today unknowingly.

What a great fortune that is to receive His salvation,

to accept the Creator’s sovereignty.


Chorus

A person who knows God’s sovereignty,

they should be in an active state.

A person who sees God’s sovereignty,

they should not be in a passive state.

While accepting all things are fated,

they’ve a right definition of fate:

The life of man is entirely

under God’s sovereignty.


Verse 2

If a person perceives God’s sovereignty,

they will more earnestly desire to submit

to everything God has planned,

to obey all God’s arrangements.

If a person perceives God’s sovereignty,

they will have determination and confidence

to stop rebelling against God,

to accept His orchestrations.


Chorus

A person who knows God’s sovereignty,

they should be in an active state.

A person who sees God’s sovereignty,

they should not be in a passive state.

While accepting all things are fated,

they’ve a right definition of fate:

The life of man is entirely

under God’s sovereignty.
