2020 English Christian Song | "You Should Forsake All for the Truth"

May 31, 2020

Verse 1

You must suffer hardship on your way to truth.

You must give yourself over completely.

Endure humiliation, embrace more suffering.

Doing this to gain more of the truth.

 

Chorus

You must pursue all that is beautiful.

You must seek all that is good,

a path in life filled with meaning.

Forsake all pleasures, forsake the flesh

for the sake of truth.

 

Verse 2

You must not throw away the truth

for the sake of a peaceful family life.

Keeping integrity, staying dignified,

don’t cast aside for pleasures gone tomorrow.

 

Chorus

You must pursue all that is beautiful.

You must seek all that is good,

a path in life filled with meaning.

Forsake all pleasures, forsake the flesh

for the sake of truth.

 

Bridge

Do not throw away all truths

purely for enjoyment.

If you carry on in a vulgar way

with no pursuit, is life not wasted?

Do not throw away all truths

purely for enjoyment.

If you carry on in a vulgar way

with no pursuit, is life not wasted?

 

Chorus

You must pursue all that is beautiful.

You must seek all that is good,

a path in life filled with meaning.

Forsake all pleasures, forsake the flesh

for the sake of truth.
