752 The Value of the Life of Job

Verse 1

Where was the value of Job’s life testimony?

To man, Job represented the humanity,

the very people whom God wishes to save,

in bearing a resounding testimony to Him.

Job testified to God before Satan and the world,

and fulfilled the duty that should be fulfilled.

He showed an example for those God wishes to save

that they can beat Satan by relying on Him.


Chorus

What Job lived out in his lifetime

and his remarkable triumph over Satan

will be cherished by God forever.

Job’s purity, his uprightness,

his fear of God will be honored, emulated

and echoed by generations to come, to come.


Verse 2

To God, the value of Job’s life lay in his fear;

Job feared Him, worshiped Him, bore witness to His deeds.

He praised the actions of God, bringing Him comfort.

Job brought God joy and made Him very pleased.

To God, the value of Job’s life before his end

was also in how he faced trials and beat Satan,

and bore resounding testimony to God

before Satan and the people of the world.


Pre-chorus

He glorified God among mankind.

He brought comfort to God’s heart.

God’s eager heart beheld that result

and hope ignited in His heart.


Chorus

What Job lived out in his lifetime

and his remarkable triumph over Satan

will be cherished by God forever.

Job’s purity, his uprightness,

his fear of God will be honored, emulated

and echoed by generations to come.


Bridge

Job’s testimony set a precedent

to stand firm in one’s testimony to God,

for being able to shame Satan for God

in His work of managing all of mankind.

Job brought comfort to God’s heart,

and he gave Him a foretaste of delight of being glorified.

He gave a good start to God’s management plan,

and his name became a symbol for God’s glory,

a sign of mankind’s triumph over Satan.


Chorus

What Job lived out in his lifetime

and his remarkable triumph over Satan

will be cherished by God forever.

Job’s purity, his uprightness,

his fear of God will be honored, emulated

and echoed by generations to come, to come.


Outro

Job will always be cherished by God,

just like a flawless, shiny pearl,

and by man should be treasured.

This is the value of Job’s life.

This is the value of Job’s life.
