699 Offering the Most Precious Sacrifice to God

I

After years have passed,

having experienced the hardship of refinement and chastisement,

man has become weather-beaten.

Although man has lost the “glory” and “romance” of times past,

he has, without knowing it,

come to understand the principles of human conduct,

and has come to appreciate God’s years of devotion to saving mankind,

come to appreciate God’s years of devotion to saving mankind.


II

Man slowly begins to loathe his own barbarousness.

He begins to hate how feral he is,

all of his misunderstandings toward God,

and the unreasonable demands he has made of Him.

The clock cannot be turned back.

Past events become regretful memories of man,

and the words and love of God become the driving force in man’s new life.

III

Man’s wounds heal day by day, his strength returns,

and he stands up and looks upon the face of the Almighty …

only to discover that He has always been at my side,

and that His smile and His beautiful countenance

are still so stirring.

His heart still holds concern for the mankind He created,

and His hands are still as warm and powerful as they were in the beginning.


IV

It is as if man returned to the Garden of Eden,

yet this time man no longer listens to the enticements of the serpent

and no longer turns away from the face of Jehovah.

Man kneels before God,

looks up at God’s smiling face,

and offers his most precious sacrifice—

Oh! My Lord, my God!

Man kneels before God,

looks up at God’s smiling face,

and offers his most precious sacrifice—

Oh! My Lord, my God!

Man kneels before God,

looks up at God’s smiling face,

and offers his most precious sacrifice—

Oh! My Lord, my God!

Oh! My Lord, my God!
