English Christian Devotional Song “Seek to Love God No Matter How Great Your Suffering”

Seek to Love God No Matter How Great Your Suffering

I
The faithful in China face so much persecution and hardship.
Most people don’t understand God’s will,
thinking suffering is valueless:
They’re oppressed for their faith,
rejected by the world, their homes are troubled too,
their future all too bleak, all too bleak.
The suffering of some becomes too much,
so much that they want to die.
How does this show a God-loving heart?
People like this are worthless!
They cannot persevere, they have no stamina.
They’re weak and feeble too, and they are powerless.
You must see clearly that
God cleanses you by refining you.
So your testimony you must bear always
during the last days.
No matter how you’re suffering,
as long as you are still breathing,
stay true to God, bow to His hand.
This is true love for God, a strong testimony.

II
God is eager for man to love Him,
but as they do, their sufferings grow.
The more their love deepens for God,
through greater trials they will go.
If you really love Him, great sufferings will come.
But if you don’t, maybe all will seem
well with life, well with life.
When your heart starts to practice loving God,
you will find many things hard.
You’re small in stature and so are refined,
and you can’t satisfy God.
With weakness deep within, you can’t fulfill God’s will.
You feel it’s out of reach, so you will be refined, be refined.
You must see clearly
that God cleanses you by refining you.
So your testimony you must bear always
during the last days.
No matter how you’re suffering,
as long as you are still breathing,
stay true to God, bow to His hand.
This is true love for God,
a strong testimony, strong testimony, yeah.
Oh, stay true to God.
