794 Those Who Know God’s Rule Will Submit to His Dominion

Verse 1

After decades of life’s experience,

knowing the Creator’s sovereignty,

a person has true appreciation

for life’s value and meaning.

With deep knowledge of life’s purpose,

understanding and experience

of the Creator’s sovereignty,

they’ll submit to His authority.


Pre-chorus 1

They know the meaning of God making man.

They know to worship the Creator,

all that man has comes from the Creator,

and will return to Him soon.


Chorus

If one views life as an opportunity

to experience Creator’s sovereignty,

to understand His authority,

as a rare chance to perform one’s duty;

if one views life as an opportunity

to fulfill one’s mission as a created being,

one will have the right view of life,

and live a life blessed and guided by Him.

They’ll walk in the light, know His sovereignty,

come under His dominion,

bear witness to His wondrous deeds

and His powerful authority.


Verse 2

This type of person will understand:

By the Creator’s sovereignty,

man’s birth and death are arranged,

pre-destined by His authority.

When one can truly understand this,

they will be calm when facing their death;

they’ll let go of their worldly possessions,

and let them go peacefully.


Pre-chorus 2

Rather than fight and dread it blindly,

they’ll submit to it happily,

welcome the last life juncture

arranged by the Creator.

They’ll embrace it without struggle,

and submit to all that follows.


Chorus

If one views life as an opportunity

to experience Creator’s sovereignty,

to understand His authority,

as a rare chance to perform one’s duty;

if one views life as an opportunity

to fulfill one’s mission as a created being,

one will have the right view of life,

and live a life blessed and guided by Him.

They’ll walk in the light, know His sovereignty,

come under His dominion,

bear witness to His wondrous deeds

and His powerful authority.
