DALAM PETA ALLAH

Dalam peta Allah kita diciptakan

Agar dinyatakan kemuliaan Tuhan

Tapi suatu saat kita t’lah tersesat

Tanggalkan mahkota yang t’lah dib’rikanNya

 

Tapi Allah telah berencana

Membawa yang sesat ke Golgota

Dari surga mulia Kristus t’lah turunlah

Agar kita kembali dalam peta Allah

 

* In the image of God we were made long ago

With the purpose divine, here His glory to show

But we failed Him one day and like sheep went astray

Thinking not of the cost, we, His likeness, had lost

 

But from eternity God had in mind

The work at Calvary, the lost to find

From His heaven so broad Christ came down earth to trod

So that men might live again in the image of God

 

** Now that I had believed and the Saviour received

Now that I from the Christ, cry of my guilt am relieved

I will live for my Lord, not for gain or reward

But for love thinking of what His grace has restored

 

I’ll never comprehend redemption’s plan

How Christ could condescend, to die for man

Such a Saviour I’ll praise to the end of my days

As I upward onward trod in the image of God
