396 I Sit Silently Before God’s Word
I sit silently before God’s word. Looking at God’s word, I’m lost in a myriad of thoughts.
My past living out was too pitiable without reality.
God’s grace of salvation is great beyond counting; He has saved me at a heavy price.
Today I have no reality and feel ashamed to see God. Lonely and sorrowful in heart, I shed tears secretly.
Regretful, I’m really indebted to God.
I sit silently before God’s word, pondering the truth in it carefully.
Checking myself against God’s word, I realize I am too small.
God’s life is so beautiful that my heart admires it. I’m even more anxious about when I will be perfected.
How should I cooperate with God? What price should I pay?
I know the truths but fail to live them out; how can I deserve to live before God?
I sit silently before God’s word. Quiet before God, I meditate on His work.
God’s chastising and refining man contains so much love.
God created man for gaining man, but man is disobedient, only adding sufferings to God.
I didn’t satisfy God’s will but grieved His heart. How can I, conscienceless, deserve to be called a man?
My heart is guilty; the more I think, the more I feel sorrowful.
I sit silently before God’s word; by His word I examine myself.
Why has my disposition not been changed and I still live out the old likeness?
God holds my hand and guides me to walk, anxiously expecting me to grow up in life.
I will satisfy and fulfill God’s wish; I won’t disobey to grieve His heart anymore.
O God! O God! I’m willing to satisfy You.
