326 The Saddest Thing About Mankind’s Belief in God

Verse 1

Man’s greatest failure in faith

is seeking to obey and worship God,

but plotting out his own blessings

and best destination.

Who will abandon their ideals

even if they know they’re pathetic, hateful?

Who can halt their own steps

and stop thinking just of themselves?


Chorus

The saddest thing about mankind’s belief

is that man conducts his own management,

paying no heed to God’s work and management.


Verse 2

God needs those who cooperate with Him

to complete His management,

who obey Him and give their all to

the work of His management.

He doesn’t need beggars

or those who work and wait for rewards,

despising those resting on their laurels.


Chorus

The saddest thing about mankind’s belief

is that man conducts his own management,

paying no heed to God’s work and management.


Bridge

God hates the cold-blooded

who resent His work

and only talk of heaven and blessings.

He has even greater loathing

for those who take advantage

of the opportunity through His work

in saving mankind.

For they’ve never cared what God wishes

to achieve and gain through His work.

They exploit His work for blessings,

not caring for God’s heart,

they’re preoccupied with

their own prospects and fate.


Chorus

The saddest thing about mankind’s belief

is that man conducts his own management,

paying no heed to God’s work and management.


Verse 3

Those who resent God’s management

and don’t care how God saves mankind

are doing what they like

away from God’s management.

Their behavior is not remembered

or approved of by God,

nor is it looked upon with favor by Him.


Chorus

The saddest thing about mankind’s belief

is that man conducts his own management,

paying no heed to God’s work and management.
