993 You Should Treasure the Day of God’s Glory

Verse 1

People don’t treasure God’s coming,

nor do they prize the day of His glory.

They’re not glad to receive His chastisement,

not willing to return His glory to Him.

They’re not willing to cast off the evil one’s poison.


Verse 2

Humanity continues trying to deceive God,

still wearing happy faces, bright smiles, like the past,

unaware that deep gloom will descend upon man

after God’s glory departs from them.


Pre-chorus

They’re unaware that when God’s day comes to all mankind,

it will be worse for them than for the people of Noah’s day.


Chorus

Man does not know how dark Israel became

when God’s glory departed from it.

At dawn, man forgets how dark the night was,

how difficult it was to get through.

When the sun again retreats and darkness descends,

man will again lament and gnash his teeth in the darkness.


Verse 3

Have you forgotten, when God’s glory departed from Israel,

how hard it was for the Israelites to endure those suffering days?

Now is the time when you see God’s glory,

and it’s also the time when you share the day of His glory.


Bridge

Man will lament amid the darkness

when God’s glory leaves the filthy land.

Now is the day of God’s glory when God does His work,

and it’s the day when He exempts man from suffering,

for He won’t share the times

of torment and tribulation with them.

God wants only to conquer mankind completely,

and to completely defeat the evil one of man.


Chorus

Man does not know how dark Israel became

when God’s glory departed from it.

At dawn, man forgets how dark the night was,

how difficult it was to get through.

When the sun again retreats and darkness descends,

man will again lament and gnash his teeth in the darkness.
