280 Love Keeps Watch
You have become flesh and You express the truth to save mankind. All Your words are the truth, they awaken the hearts of man. You keep watch day and night, with us always, through the wind and rain. You’ve poured out Your heart’s blood so that mankind may be saved. You endure our rebellion and misunderstandings with no complaints or regrets. But how many people understand Your heart? And how many have awakened and given their hearts to You? You have so many worries, so many anxieties and sighs. So much difficulty and bitterness, You bear all these things on Your own. Your words judge and expose people, and they reveal Your love. You’ve suffered terrible humiliation to save mankind. How many years of keeping watch? How many years of waiting? It’s just to gain a group of people who truly love You. Your kind intentions and Your sincere love have brought my numbed heart back to life. How could I ever be rebellious again? How could I ever become dispirited or turn back again? You’ve hoped, You’ve waited too long already. How could I bear to let You wait any longer, to hurt You more? On this final stretch, I wish to follow close behind You, never stopping. I’m willing to do all I can to pursue the truth so that I may gain truth and life. No matter how serious, how great the persecution and hardships, I am utterly resolved to follow You. Being able to love You, to be a good witness for You is my heart’s desire for this life.
