322 What Does God Gain From Man?

Intro

God saves man out of love,

out of mercy and for His plan.

Since man’s fallen so low,

God must speak personally.


Verse 1

When salvation comes to man,

it’s the greatest grace.

If not for God’s voice in person,

humanity would perish.

As God abhors the human race,

He’s still ready to pay for man’s salvation.

As man plays up their love for God,

they rebel and extort His grace,

while also hurting God,

causing God terrible pain.

Such is the contrast of the selfless and the selfish

between God and man!


Chorus

From every word of God, humanity gains truth,

succeeds in changing and finds direction in life.

But God only hears faint whispers of praise,

or cheap words from man to show their debt to Him.

Is this the recompense God demands of man?


Verse 2

Man is very likely to

take God for one of them.

God’s great pain is man’s rejection

when He appears or works.

God endures humiliation to save mankind.

He gives all to save man,

He wants man’s recognition.

The price God’s paid for all this

can be sensed by those with conscience.

Man has gained God’s work and words,

and His salvation.

But at the same time, nobody has ever asked:

What is it God’s gained from mankind?

What is it God’s gained from mankind?


Chorus

From every word of God, humanity gains truth,

succeeds in changing and finds direction in life.

But God only hears faint whispers of praise,

or cheap words from man to show their debt to Him.

Is this the recompense God demands of man?

From every word of God, humanity gains truth,

succeeds in changing and finds direction in life.

But God only hears faint whispers of praise,

or cheap words from man to show their debt to Him.

Is this the recompense God demands of man?
