599 God Is Always Waiting for Man to Turn Back to Him

Verse 1

Often I have called man with My Spirit,

yet man acts as if he’s been stabbed by Me.

He tends to regard Me from a distance,

in fear I’ll lead him to another world.

Often I have inquired in man’s spirit,

yet he remains utterly oblivious,

scared that I’ll strip him of all that he owns.

Thus he shuts Me outside a cold tight door.


Chorus

I do not compel man, I merely do My work.

One day he’ll swim to Me through the mighty sea,

so that he might enjoy all the riches on earth,

no possibility of being drowned in the sea.


Bridge

Often when man has fallen, I have saved him,

yet after waking he at once leaves Me;

untouched by My love, he shoots guarded looks.

So never have I warmed the heart of man.


Chorus

I do not compel man, I merely do My work.

One day he’ll swim to Me through the mighty sea,

so that he might enjoy all the riches on earth,

no possibility of being drowned in the sea.


Verse 2

Man is an emotionless creature,

he is a cold-blooded animal.

Even though he is warmed by My embrace,

he has never deeply been moved by it.

Man is just like a mountain savage,

never valued the way I’ve cherished him.

He’d rather dwell in hills, endure wild beasts;

he’s unwilling to take refuge in Me.


Chorus

I do not compel man, I merely do My work.

One day he’ll swim to Me through the mighty sea,

so that he might enjoy all the riches on earth,

no possibility of being drowned in the sea.
