922 No Man or Thing Can Surpass God’s Authority and Power

Verse 1

Though Satan looked at Job with covetous eyes,

it could not touch a hair without God’s permission.

Though Satan is evil and cruel, it had no choice

but to abide by God’s command.

Satan doesn’t dare to disobey God’s words,

for each word is an order and heavenly law,

an expression of His authority,

implying punishment for those who oppose Him.

Chorus

No person, thing, nor Satan

can or dares to violate God’s laws,

for none can escape the punishment

God sends on those who disobey them.

Verse 2

Satan’s acts to Job were a small example

of its corruption of man,

and God’s limits and orders for Satan

were a microcosm of its principles.

Satan’s role was just a small display

of its role and position in God’s management.

And its obedience to God while tempting Job

was a small example of not daring oppose God.

Chorus

No person, thing, nor Satan

can or dares to violate God’s laws,

for none can escape the punishment

God sends on those who disobey them.

Bridge

Only God can establish heavenly laws and edicts.

Only He has power to put them into effect.

His power cannot be transgressed

by any person or thing.

This is God’s unique authority, above all things.

So you can’t say “God is greatest and Satan’s number two.”

Except for the Creator, possessed of unique authority,

there is no other God!

Chorus

No person, thing, nor Satan

can or dares to violate God’s laws,

for none can escape the punishment

God sends on those who disobey them.
