689 To Believe in but Not Love God Is a Vain Life

Verse 1

No lesson is more profound than the one of loving God.

From a lifetime of belief,

the lesson people learn is how to love God.

If you believe in God, you should strive to love Him.

If you believe but don’t love,

fail to gain knowledge of Him, and you’ve never loved Him

with a true love that comes from your heart,

then your belief is futile.

Chorus

If you believe in God but do not love Him,

then you live in vain,

and your entire life is the most lowly of all lives.

If, in your whole life,

you have never loved or satisfied God,

then what is the point, what is the point of living?

What’s the point of your belief in God?

Isn’t that a waste of effort?

Verse 2

If people are to believe in, love God,

then there’s a price to pay.

They should not just try to act in some external ways.

They must seek out true insight

in the depths of their hearts.

If you’re passionate about singing hymns and dancing,

but you simply cannot put into practice the truth,

can you say you truly love God?

Chorus

If you believe in God but do not love Him,

then you live in vain,

and your entire life is the most lowly of all lives.

If, in your whole life,

you have never loved or satisfied God,

then what is the point, what is the point of living?

What’s the point of your belief in God?

Isn’t that a waste of effort?

Bridge

Loving God requires seeking God’s will in all things.

You should probe deep within

when anything happens to you.

Try to grasp God’s will, try to see in this matter

what He wishes you to achieve,

and how you should be mindful of it.

Chorus

If you believe in God but do not love Him,

then you live in vain,

and your entire life is the most lowly of all lives.

If, in your whole life,

you have never loved or satisfied God,

then what is the point, what is the point of living?

What’s the point of your belief in God?

Isn’t that a waste of effort?
