594 God Will Spurn Those Who Fail to Keep to Their Duties

Verse 1

God has traversed mountain ranges and river valleys,

experienced the ups and downs of the human world,

roamed among them, lived among them for many a year,

yet it appears their disposition has changed little.


Pre-chorus

It seems their old nature has taken root

and sprouted in them.

They slightly improve it without effecting any real change.

As they say, the essence has not changed,

but the form has changed so much.

These people seem to be trying to fool God,

bluff it out and win His appreciation.


Chorus

Few hold fast to their resolutions,

few are chaste: Are all of you not the same?

Few offer up their most precious things in sacrifice to God.

If you’re unable to keep to your duties

as members of God’s people in the kingdom,

then you will be detested and rejected by Him!


Verse 2

As humans are worthless wretches who don’t love themselves,

why would they need God to show mercy and love once again?

They do not know themselves nor just how much they are worth.

They should put themselves upon a scale to be weighed.


Bridge

Is this not an accurate description of you, people of God?

Who has made resolutions before God and not let them go?

Made long-term resolutions

instead of setting their minds often?

People set their resolve in times of ease,

write it off in hardships,

only to pick it back up and set it before Him.

Is God so beneath their respect

that He’d accept their rejects?


Chorus

Few hold fast to their resolutions,

few are chaste: Are all of you not the same?

Few offer up their most precious things in sacrifice to God.

If you’re unable to keep to your duties

as members of God’s people in the kingdom,

then you will be detested and rejected by Him!
