1000 Time to Part Ways

Verse 1

At creation I prophesied in the last days

I’d make a group who’re of one mind with Me.

After making an example on earth,

I’d then return to My place.

Once man has done all I’ve asked of them,

I will no longer require anything of them.

Rather, we will trade stories of the old days,

and after, part company.


Bridge 1

I hope after we part ways,

man will carry on My “inheritance,”

mind My words, not forget My teachings,

nor disgrace My name.

I hope humans try their best

to satisfy Me after I’ve left.

I hope My word is the foundation of their lives,

and they can live up to My hopes.

My heart’s always been concerned for them.

I’ve always been attached to them.


Verse 2

Humanity and I once gathered,

enjoying heaven’s blessings on earth.

I lived together with humans;

we have always loved one another.

Our days were filled with laughter,

but we also had our quarrels.

Still our love was built on this,

and our ties were never severed.


Bridge 2

They left a profound impression on Me

after many years of contact.

I’ve given them many things to enjoy,

for which they’ve always been doubly grateful.

Now our gatherings won’t be the same;

who can run from the time of parting?

We love each other, but what can be done?

Who would violate the Father’s requirements?


Verse 3

I’ll return to My place

to complete another part of My work.

There’s no need to be too sad;

perhaps we will meet again.

It’s My hope humans may please Me on earth.

My Spirit will confer grace on them.

Let unpleasantries be left in the past,

let love be always between us.


Bridge 3

I have given humans so much love,

and they’ve paid a heavy price to love Me.

I hope humanity treasures our pure love,

so it will spread and be passed down forever.

Let us be linked in love when we meet again,

so our love may stay forever,

and be praised by all people.

This would satisfy Me.

I would show My face, smiling to humanity.

I hope all humans will remember My exhortations.
