308 Where Is Your True Faith?

Verse 1

When the people of Nineveh

heard Jehovah’s angry words,

they repented quickly in sackcloth and ashes.

Because they believed His words,

they were fearful and repented.

But that is not the same for people of today.


Pre-chorus 1

Though you believe God’s words

and that Jehovah’s come again,

you’re irreverent to Him,

as if observing the Jesus long ago.


Chorus

God understands the deceit

within your hearts.

Most that follow are just curious

and seek Him out of emptiness.

When your wish for peace is shattered,

your curiosity goes too;

your deceit is exposed

through your words and deeds.

You’re just curious but don’t fear God,

lacking restraint in your actions,

not holding your tongue.

Can you call it true faith?


Verse 2

You just use God’s words

when you’re bored or worried

to fill the empty spaces in your lives.

Who has true faith

and puts God’s words into practice?

You claim that God sees deep

into the hearts of people.


Pre-chorus 2

But how is the God you shout about

compatible with the true God?

Why do you act like this?

Do you repay God with this love?


Chorus

God understands the deceit

within your hearts.

Most that follow are just curious

and seek Him out of emptiness.

When your wish for peace is shattered,

your curiosity goes too;

your deceit is exposed

through your words and deeds.

You’re just curious but don’t fear God,

lacking restraint in your actions,

not holding your tongue.

Can you call it true faith?


Outro

You always claim devotions,

but where are your good deeds and sacrifices?

If your words didn’t reach God’s ears,

how could He despise you so?
