157 Steadfastly Following God
1 I’ve believed in God all this time and I have finally seen the light. I have traveled a rocky road of persecution and tribulation. My flight brings constant suffering, with no place to lay my head. How many nights have I spent in prayer, unable to sleep? The world has forsaken me, loved ones shun me. Through bitter and sweet, I’ve cried an ocean. I have freedom only in name. What of human rights? How I hate Satan and long for Christ to take power! This world’s darkness and evil drive me to seek the light of life more. Christ is the truth, the way, the life, and I will follow Him to the end.
2 God struck down the shepherd, we go through great tribulations. Dark clouds bear down, fear is thick in the air. Several times I fell into the tiger’s lair and escaped from the jaws of death. God’s words consoled me, giving strength to my heart. Having suffered much torment, I deeply know God’s loveliness. God rules over all, but man’s faith is pathetic. Through the fire of trials people reap great benefit. I see through Satan, and hate the great red dragon more! The base and cruel great red dragon has corrupted and consumed countless souls. Gaining the truth and life is not easy, I must redouble my love for God and soothe God’s heart.
3 Recalling God’s work, I feel how dear He is to me. By accepting God’s judgment, my disposition has changed. The hardship of chastisement and refinement brings deeper knowledge of God. Believing in Almighty God truly is glorious. Preaching and bearing witness for God, my heart is at peace. In spite of the hardships faithfully performing my duties is a pleasure. Life is short, and loving God is the greatest happiness. Being able to serve God, my heart is satisfied! Almighty God has saved me, and given me a true life. My greatest dream has come true, and I will push on into tomorrow.
