817 God Will Gain Only Those Who Utterly Overcome Satan

Verse 1

Satan is defeated when people are delivered,

no longer its food, not devoured, instead relinquished.

For such people are upright, have faith and obedience

and fear toward God; they break with Satan completely.


Pre-chorus 1

For they bring shame on it, make a coward of it,

completely overcome it.

Their belief in God, obedience and fear of God

make Satan let them go.


Chorus

Only people like these have been truly gained by God.

It’s His objective in saving man.

If they want to be saved, be completely gained by God,

temptations and attacks people must face.

It’s the ones who come through all that Satan can do

and defeat it who are saved by God.


Verse 2

Those who have been saved by God have undergone God’s trials,

been tempted, attacked in so many ways by Satan.

Those who are saved understand God’s will and requirements,

submit to His plans; they can fear God and shun evil.


Pre-chorus 2

They possess honesty, are kindhearted and can see

the difference between love and hate.

With a sense of justice, they are rational and care

for God and treasure all from Him.


Chorus

Only people like these have been truly gained by God.

It’s His objective in saving man.

If they want to be saved, be completely gained by God,

temptations and attacks people must face.

It’s the ones who come through all that Satan can do

and defeat it who are saved by God.


Bridge

Not bound nor watched, accused, abused by Satan,

they’re free, released to liberty.

Like Job whom God could hand to Satan,

so he could live in freedom.


Chorus

Only people like these have been truly gained by God.

It’s His objective in saving man.

If they want to be saved, be completely gained by God,

temptations and attacks people must face.

It’s the ones who come through all that Satan can do

and defeat it who are saved by God.
