558 Understand Yourself According to God’s Words

Verse 1

People’s knowledge of their nature

is too superficial,

far removed from God’s words

of judgment and revelation.

It’s not deep or substantial.

They focus on external acts.

Even if they claim self-knowledge,

it wouldn’t be profound.


Pre-chorus

No one’s ever thought this is how they are,

that this is their nature,

because they’ve done such a thing

or revealed something.


Chorus

God’s revealed the nature of humanity,

but humans understand their way of doing things,

their way of speaking are flawed in reality,

so they find it hard to practice truth.


Verse 2

People think that their mistakes

are careless, fleeting expressions

rather than truths of their nature.

Those who see it this way

can’t put truth into practice,

for they don’t thirst after truth

or accept truth as it is.

They just carelessly follow the rules.


Pre-chorus

No one’s ever thought this is how they are,

that this is their nature,

because they’ve done such a thing

or revealed something.


Chorus

God’s revealed the nature of humanity,

but humans understand their way of doing things,

their way of speaking are flawed in reality,

so they find it hard to practice truth.


Bridge

People don’t view their own nature

as being so corrupt,

believing they’re not bad enough

to be punished or destroyed,

thinking it’s alright to lie sometimes,

and that they’re better than before.

But they’re nowhere near the standards.

By not putting truth into practice,

people only have some actions

that don’t clearly defy truth.


Chorus

God’s revealed the nature of humanity,

but humans understand their way of doing things,

their way of speaking are flawed in reality,

so they find it hard to practice truth.
