65 God Laments the Future of Mankind

Verse 1

In this vast world which has changed

countless times ever since before history,

there is no one to lead and guide man,

no one but He who rules over all.

No mighty lord labors and prepares

for the sake of this mankind’s needs.

None can lead them into bright future,

nor free them from injustice of this world.


Chorus

God laments the future of humankind.

How He grieves at the fall of them!

See His sorrow as they fail to learn

that they march the road of no return.

Man has rebelled, broken the heart of God;

Satan’s evil path they’ve gladly trod.

And no one has stopped to clearly see

where mankind will eventually go.


Verse 2

Who then stops and senses God’s anger?

Who seeks to please and get close to Him?

Where’s the one who glimpses God’s sorrow

or tries to grasp the pain He feels?

Even when they’ve heard His calling voice,

they press down on the path that leads away

from God’s mercy, truth, and watchful gaze;

willingly, they sell themselves to Satan.


Chorus

God laments the future of humankind.

How He grieves at the fall of them!

See His sorrow as they fail to learn

that they march the road of no return.

Man has rebelled, broken the heart of God;

Satan’s evil path they’ve gladly trod.

And no one has stopped to clearly see

where mankind will eventually go.


Verse 3

How then will God act towards the one

who stands defiant and dismisses Him?

Know that God’s calls and urgings are followed

by disaster grim and hard to bear.

It punishes not just man’s flesh but his soul.

None can tell what wrath God will unleash

when His plan’s made void and His voice ignored,

wrath that man has never felt or heard.


Bridge

This is a calamity unique;

God’s planned one creation and salvation.

This is the first time, and the last.

No one can feel with his heart

God’s painstaking love

and fervent desire to save mankind.


Chorus

God laments the future of humankind.

How He grieves at the fall of them!

See His sorrow as they fail to learn

that they march the road of no return.

Man has rebelled, broken the heart of God;

Satan’s evil path they’ve gladly trod.

And no one has stopped to clearly see

where mankind will eventually go,

where mankind will eventually go.
