69 The Substance of the Work of Conquest

Verse 1

Man’s biggest problem

is that they think of nothing but their own fate,

idolizing their prospects,

pursuing God because of them.

They don’t worship God

because of how they love Him.

And so selfishness and greed,

all things that obstruct their worship must go.

Then the effect of man’s conquest will be achieved.


Chorus

The work of conquest achieves its effect

by taking away the fate and prospects of man,

judging and chastising man’s rebellious disposition,

not making deals, giving man grace and blessings,

but taking their freedoms and prospects away

to reveal their loyalties; that’s the work of conquest.


Verse 2

In the first conquests of man,

it’s crucial to purge wild ambitions,

fatal weaknesses of man,

and through this, reveal man’s love of God,

change their views of life, of God,

and the meaning of existence.

In this way, man’s love for God is cleansed,

man’s heart is truly conquered.


Chorus

Oh, the work of conquest achieves its effect

by taking away the fate and prospects of man,

judging and chastising man’s rebellious disposition,

not making deals, giving man grace and blessings,

but taking their freedoms and prospects away

to reveal their loyalties; that’s the work of conquest.


Bridge

But in God’s attitude towards all His creatures,

He does not conquer for the sake of it.

Instead, God conquers to gain man, for His glory,

to recover the original likeness of man.


Chorus

Oh, the work of conquest achieves its effect

by taking away the fate and prospects of man,

judging and chastising man’s rebellious disposition,

not making deals, giving man grace and blessings,

but taking their freedoms and prospects away

to reveal their loyalties; that’s the work of conquest.
