279 True Love Amongst Man
1 You express the truth and bestow on man the way of eternal life. You endure the pain of rejection and share in man’s hardships. You walk amongst the churches and shepherd Your chosen people. You live alongside man and suffer with them. You have languished in pain for decades. You pour out all Your love to win man’s heart. Your stern words are filled with true love. You judge and cleanse man, test and refine man. You utter new words each day, all to perfect man. I undergo Your judgment and am being cleansed of corruption. I experience Your love and my heart turns to You.
2 I’ve believed in You for many years but never knew You. Filled with misconceptions, I only begged You for grace. I accepted Your work, but I never loved You. I truly lost all sense and was unworthy to be called human. You showed me mercy and lenience and did Your utmost to save me. Your judgment and refinement are Your love. Through experiencing Your judgment, I know Your righteousness. I live like a new person and my love for You is purer. Seeing Your loveliness, my heart belongs to You. I submit to Your orchestrations without regret or complaint. I love You and testify to You, and I’ll be loyal to You all my life.
