171 I Have Seen God
I heard God's voice and went to Him, crying out His name, like reuniting with my mother. God knew my misery and sorrow, His words of consolation wiped my tears away. And I came back from the chains of sin and death. God's words judge the evil, reveal the corruption of man. I saw I pursued fame and gain, lacking conscience, unaware of what I was made for, living like a beast. Almighty God saved me. Christ is the truth and life, I forsake all to follow Him. God's judgment and His trials are for my salvation. God's heart's so beautiful, God's heart is so kind. I resolve to be a new man and repay His love for all my days.
The judgment of God's words reveals the corruption of man. I read the words of God, but did not accept the truth, never tried to understand the truth of my corruption. I thought my efforts would be praised, but God's test showed my lack of humanity. I tried to barter blessings, spouting hollow words, not practicing the truth. Deceitful, trying to fool God, a true hypocrite. Through trials I saw my true face. God's righteousness and majesty tolerates no offense. I fell to my knees before Him. A believer without truth, I have no right to see His face. God's judgment and His trials are for my salvation. God's heart's so beautiful, God's heart is so kind. I resolve to be a new man and repay His love for all my days.
