158 The Method and Principle of God’s Work in Humanity

Verse 1

When God was not in flesh, man did not understand

much of what He said, for it came from His divinity,

its perspective and context intangible to man.

It was from the spiritual realm,

which man couldn’t see or pass through.


Chorus

Once God became flesh, He spoke as a human,

showing His divine will and disposition

through things man saw or imagined,

ways and tongues they understood.

So they knew God and learned His standards and intention.

This was the method and principle of God’s work in humanity.


Verse 2

When God worked in humanity, He expressed many truths,

many methods of His work in a human way.

His disposition and will, what He has and is

were also expressed that people may know them.

They understood His essence, what He has and is,

which show His identity and place as God Himself.


Chorus

Once God became flesh, He spoke as a human,

showing His divine will and disposition

through things man saw or imagined,

ways and tongues they understood.

So they knew God and learned His standards and intention.

This was the method and principle of God’s work in humanity.


Bridge

The Son of man in flesh expressed God’s disposition

and His essence as clearly as could be.

His humanity was no hindrance for man to talk with God,

but the only way for man to connect to the Creator.


Chorus

Once God became flesh, He spoke as a human,

showing His divine will and disposition

through things man saw or imagined,

ways and tongues they understood.

So they knew God and learned His standards and intention.

This was the method and principle of God’s work in humanity.
