272 The Devotion of Love
1 Oh Almighty God! You’ve come into this world from heaven. You follow the Father’s will to save man, donning the flesh, expressing the truth and bringing judgment. You are righteous and majestic, and tolerate no human offense. You’ve suffered everything with no complaints to save mankind. Day after day, year after year, You endure so much slander, persecution, so many hardships from the people of this world. You express Your words to provide for and to lead Your chosen ones, You instill both truth and life within us. Oh God! You give all Your love for mankind’s sake. You pay any price without regret and without complaint. Your love is so great, Your disposition is honorable beyond compare. How could we not dance with joy and sing out praises of You?
2 Oh Almighty God! You are so honorable, so good and beautiful! You walk among the churches and utter words. Your words guide us through every single day, judging and cleansing our corrupt dispositions. Through trials and refinement we see Your genuine love.
Day after day, year after year, You endure our resistance, rebelliousness, misunderstandings, and complaints. With unflagging patience You provide for our needs. We’ve gained the truth and had new life. Oh God! Experiencing Your work, we come to know Your love. Your disposition is righteous and holy, and it is so lovable. We’re willing to give our hearts over to You, to offer up all of ourselves. Our heart’s wish is to always love You and bear witness to You.
