719 To Serve as a Foil Is a Lifelong Blessing

Verse 1

It’s because you live

in the same realm as God

and in this filthy land with Him,

you’ve become His foils, been saved.

If He had not become flesh,

who would have mercy on you?

Who would care for you lowly people?

Who would care about you?

Verse 2

If God incarnate

were not working amongst you,

when could you gain this salvation

that no one’s had before?

If God had not become flesh

to care for you and judge your sins,

wouldn’t you have fallen

into Hades long ago?

Chorus

The work of being foils is suitable for you,

because you’ve gained salvation

of God’s judgment due to this.

Don’t you see it’s a blessing to act as a true foil?

You’re just a foil but gain salvation

you’ve never had before.

Verse 3

If God had not become flesh,

humbled Himself amongst you,

what right would you have to be a foil

for the righteousness of God?

Aren’t you acting as foils

because God became flesh

so you could gain such great salvation?

You’re saved because God became flesh.

Verse 4

If not for God incarnate

living amongst you,

would you see you’re living

in a hell on earth worse than a pig or dog?

Haven’t the judgment

and chastisement you’ve gained

been because you’re foils

for His work in the flesh?

Chorus

The work of being foils is suitable for you,

because you’ve gained salvation

of God’s judgment due to this.

Don’t you see it’s a blessing to act as a true foil?

You’re just a foil but gain salvation

you’ve never had before.

Bridge

Being a foil is your duty now,

and eternal blessings waiting in the future

will be the reward you deserve.

What you gain is not fleeting knowledge,

but a greater blessing,

an eternal continuation of life.

Chorus

The work of being foils is suitable for you,

because you’ve gained salvation

of God’s judgment due to this.

Don’t you see it’s a blessing to act as a true foil?

You’re just a foil but gain salvation

you’ve never had before.
