280 God Is the Sole Sovereign of Man’s Fate

Verse 1

No matter how far you have walked in your life,

no matter how old you are now,

no matter how long you will stay on your course,

you must recognize God’s authority,

be earnest in knowing He’s your unique Master.

Chorus

No matter how great one’s abilities are,

one cannot influence the fates of other people,

let alone orchestrate them, or change, or control.

Only the unique God dictates all things for man,

for only He has the authority to rule man’s fate,

and so only the Creator is man’s Master.

Verse 2

All should have clear and precise knowledge of

God’s control over man’s destiny.

It’s the key to knowing human life, gaining truth,

the lesson of knowing God every day.

You cannot take shortcuts in reaching this goal.

Chorus

No matter how great one’s abilities are,

one cannot influence the fates of other people,

let alone orchestrate them, or change, or control.

Only the unique God dictates all things for man,

for only He has the authority to rule man’s fate,

and so only the Creator is man’s Master.

Bridge

You cannot escape God’s sovereignty.

God is man’s only Lord,

He’s human fate’s only Master.

So man never can dictate his own fate;

it’s impossible for him to surpass it.

Chorus

No matter how great one’s abilities are,

one cannot influence the fates of other people,

let alone orchestrate them, or change, or control.

Only the unique God dictates all things for man,

for only He has the authority to rule man’s fate,

and so only the Creator is man’s Master.
