224 Obey the Work of the Spirit to Follow to the End

Verse 1

The Holy Spirit’s work changes day to day,

higher step by step with greater revelations.

This is how God works to perfect mankind.

If man cannot keep up, he may be left behind.

Without a heart willing to obey,

he cannot follow through to the end.


Chorus

Those who disobey by nature, oppose by will,

they will be left behind as God’s work rushes on.

Only those who obey, gladly humble themselves

can progress to the end, to the end of the road.


Verse 2

The former age has passed, and this is a new age.

When a new age comes, new work must then be done.

And in the final age when God perfects man,

God will work oh so fast, performing new work.

And so without a heart that obeys,

how difficult to follow in God’s steps!


Chorus

Those who disobey by nature, oppose by will,

they will be left behind as God’s work rushes on.

Only those who obey, gladly humble themselves

can progress to the end, to the end of the road.


Verse 3

God’s work is not unchanging nor bound by rules,

but it’s ever newer, it is always higher.

His work becomes more practical with each step,

more and more in line with actual needs of mankind.

Only when man’s gone through this kind of work,

can his disposition fin’lly change.


Chorus

Those who disobey by nature, oppose by will,

they will be left behind as God’s work rushes on.

Only those who obey, gladly humble themselves

can progress to the end, to the end of the road.


Bridge

Man’s knowledge of life grows, and so God elevates His work.

That’s how God perfects man and makes him fit for God’s use.

His work fights, sets right man’s notions,

leads them to a higher, realer state,

the highest realm of faith in God, so His will may be done.


Chorus

Those who disobey by nature, oppose by will,

they will be left behind as God’s work rushes on.

Only those who obey, gladly humble themselves

can progress to the end, to the end of the road.
