285 Suffering Fills the Days Without God

Verse 1

When one does not comprehend fate

or understand God’s sovereignty,

when one gropes forward willfully,

staggering and tottering,

through the fog, the journey

is too difficult to make,

through the fog, the journey

will make one’s heart break.


Chorus

Suffering fills the days without God.

If one accepts the Creator’s sovereignty,

submits to all His arrangements,

and seeks to gain true human life,

one can break free from the heartache,

break free from all of one’s suffering,

shake off the emptiness of life,

shake off the emptiness of life.


Verse 2

When one has no God and one cannot see Him,

when one can’t recognize His sovereignty,

every day is miserable,

and the days have no value or meaning.

No matter where one is or what job one does,

one’s means of living and pursuit of goals,

when one has no God, it brings one

endless heartbreak and suffering that’s hard to let go.


Chorus

Suffering fills the days without God.

If one accepts the Creator’s sovereignty,

submits to all His arrangements,

and seeks to gain true human life,

one can break free from the heartache,

break free from all of one’s suffering,

shake off the emptiness of life,

shake off the emptiness of life.


Bridge

When people can recognize God’s sovereignty

over their human fate,

the smart ones choose to know and accept it,

and bid farewell to painful days

when they tried to build a good life

with two hands of their own.

They’ll no longer struggle against fate

and pursue their so-called goals.


Chorus

Suffering fills the days without God.

If one accepts the Creator’s sovereignty,

submits to all His arrangements,

and seeks to gain true human life,

one can break free from the heartache,

break free from all of one’s suffering,

shake off the emptiness of life,

shake off the emptiness of life.
