388 Practicing the Truth Is the Key to Faith in God

Chorus

The key to faith in God

is putting truth into practice,

is caring for God’s will.

It’s knowing God’s work on man

when He comes in the flesh;

it’s knowing His word’s principles.

Do not follow the masses.

Have principles in your entry,

hold fast to them, hold fast.


Verse 1

Believing in God and seeking knowledge of Him

is no simple matter indeed.

This cannot be achieved by simply gathering

and listening to sermons.

You cannot be perfected by passion alone.

You must gain experience and have knowledge,

be principled in all that you do,

gain the work of the Holy Spirit,

gain the work of the Holy Spirit.


Chorus

The key to faith in God

is putting truth into practice,

is caring for God’s will.

It’s knowing God’s work on man

when He comes in the flesh;

it’s knowing His word’s principles.

Do not follow the masses.

Have principles in your entry,

hold fast to them, hold fast.


Verse 2

When you have undergone experiences,

you can discern many things—

good and evil, righteousness and wickedness,

what is of flesh and blood, what is of truth.

You should be able to distinguish

between all of these things,

so no matter what, you will never be lost.

Only this is your real stature,

only this is your real stature.


Chorus

The key to faith in God

is putting truth into practice,

is caring for God’s will.

It’s knowing God’s work on man

when He comes in the flesh;

it’s knowing His word’s principles.

Do not follow the masses.

Have principles in your entry,

hold fast to them, hold fast.


Outro

Hold firm to the things within you

that are God’s enlightenment;

this is of such great help to you.

Or you’ll go right today, left tomorrow,

and you’ll never gain anything real.

There will be no gain for your life.

Practice the truth, practice the truth,

this is the key to faith in God.
