239 I Saw God’s Love in Chastisement and Judgment

Verse 1

Oh God! Though I’ve endured hundreds of trials,

and though I’ve even come close to death,

it’s allowed me to truly know You,

and supreme salvation I’ve obtained.

If Your judgment and Your discipline,

if Your chastisement departed from me,

then I would be living in darkness,

under Satan’s domain I would be.


Chorus

Oh God! I implore You.

Don’t take my greatest comforts away;

just a few words of comfort are great.

For I’ve enjoyed Your love,

and from You, I can’t part;

how could I not love You all the way?


Verse 2

What are the benefits of man’s flesh?

If Your chastisement were to leave me,

it’d be like Your Spirit forsaking me,

as if You were no longer with me.

If You take my freedom, give me sickness,

I can continue on with my life.

But if Your judgment were to leave me,

I’d have no way to go on with life.


Chorus

Oh God! I implore You.

Don’t take my greatest comforts away;

just a few words of comfort are great.

For I’ve enjoyed Your love,

and from You, I can’t part;

how could I not love You all the way?


Verse 3

If I were without Your chastisement,

then Your love would have drifted from me.

I can’t even put it into words,

this love is far too profound for me.

Without Your love I’d fall to Satan,

unable to see Your glorious face.

How could I continue on living?

This dark life I could not tolerate.


Pre-chorus

Having You by my side is seeing You,

so how could I leave You?


Chorus

Oh God! I implore You.

Don’t take my greatest comforts away;

just a few words of comfort are great.

For I’ve enjoyed Your love,

and from You, I can’t part;

how could I not love You all the way?


Bridge

Your love has caused me tears of sorrow.

Yet a life such as this has more depth.

It enriches me and helps me change,

gain the truth a creature should possess.


Chorus

Oh God! I implore You.

Don’t take my greatest comforts away;

just a few words of comfort are great.

For I’ve enjoyed Your love,

and from You, I can’t part;

how could I not love You all the way?
