250 None Can Fathom God’s Work

Verse 1

God and man cannot be seen as equal.

God’s substance and work are unfathomable, incomprehensible.

If God does not do all His work Himself,

speak His words among men,

then His will never can be understood.

Even those who have devoted their entire lives to God

are incapable of gaining the approval of God.


Chorus

Man should not define the work of God.

In the eyes of God, man is less than an ant,

how can little man fathom God’s work?

Man cannot define the work of God.

In the eyes of God, man is less than an ant,

how can little man fathom God’s work?


Verse 2

Without God’s work, man’s best deeds are worthless,

for God’s thoughts will always be higher than man’s.

None can fathom God’s wisdom, and so God says that

those who think they see through God and His work

are useless, they are all just arrogant and ignorant.

Satan has corrupted all flesh, man’s nature opposes God.

They’re not equal with God, can’t offer counsel for His work.


Chorus

Man should not define the work of God.

In the eyes of God, man is less than an ant,

how can little man fathom God’s work?

Man cannot define the work of God.

In the eyes of God, man is less than an ant,

how can little man fathom God’s work?


Verse 3

How God guides man is His very own work.

Man should submit and should hold no opinions,

for man is only dust.

Since we try to seek God, we should never

superimpose our notions on the work of God

for Him to consider,

nor use our corrupt nature to try to oppose God’s work.

Would that not make us antichrists?

Can such claim belief in God?


Chorus

Man should not define the work of God.

In the eyes of God, man is less than an ant,

how can little man fathom God’s work?

Man cannot define the work of God.

In the eyes of God, man is less than an ant,

how can little man fathom God’s work?


Bridge

Since we believe that there is a God,

and we wish to satisfy and to see Him,

we should seek the way of truth,

the way to be compatible with God,

and we should not stubbornly oppose God,

what good could come of this?


Chorus

Man should not define the work of God.

In the eyes of God, man is less than an ant,

how can little man fathom God’s work?

Man cannot define the work of God.

In the eyes of God, man is less than an ant,

how can little man fathom God’s work?
