264 Having Stepped Into a New Life
O God! Now I have stepped into a new life,
Spending my days and nights in the kingdom exercise.
I always like to come before You, and only in this way do I not feel accused.
Now I’ve just understood that it’s God You who have loved me.
O God! I’m willing to love You, and don’t care how others do.
I will cooperate with You, for You are expecting me.
O God! I will no longer be passive, no longer be lazy,
And no longer live for myself; to satisfy Your heart’s desire is my wish.
The path under my feet You open, the love-fire in my heart You kindle,
Numerous difficulties and dangers You lead me through,
Sufferings and tribulations You permit. So many times I shed tears,
So many times I’m sorrowful and lonely, so many times I’m extremely grieved,
And so many times I fall into Satan’s trap…
But God You have never left me.
How could I not be grateful? How could I not shed tears?
How could I not love You? Though I’m small in stature and weak in strength,
I will give You a true love, for You not to wait anymore;
I will give You a pure love,
For You to taste my love; I will give You all my love,
For You to gain my love. I will throw myself into Your warm bosom of love.
