HYMN


Spiritual Or Natural

The human faith is blind.
It leaps into dark,
And hopes to land in light.
It will not trust in God.
It starts with the human,
And that is where it ends.
It does not depend on the person of Jesus.
It can't receive the things of God.
It is a reasoned faith.

The faith that is of God,
Has eyes to see His will.
It moves the Hand of God,
For it has come from Him
It starts with God,
And God will complete it.
It can't be found outside of Christ Jesus.
It is not bound by things of earth.
It is the faith of God.

The human hope is weak.
It is a "hope so" hope.
It cannot light the way
It comes from human hearts.
It starts with the human,
And that is where it ends.
It does not depend on the person of Jesus.
Nor can it see the things of God.
It's merely mortal hope.

The hope that is of God,
Can see what God will do.
It knows His promises,
For it has come from Him.
It starts with God,
And God will fulfill it.
It can't be found outside of Christ Jesus.
It is not bound by things of earth.
It is the hope of God.

The human love receives.
It does not give away.
It never can be pure.
It comes from human hearts.
It starts with the human,
And that is where it ends.
It does not depend on the person of Jesus.
Nor can it love as Jesus loves.
It's selfish, fleshly love.

The love that is of God,
Can do what God will do.
It has the pow'r of God,
For it has come from Him.
It starts with God,
And God will complete it.
It can't be found outside of Christ Jesus.
It is not bound by things of earth.
It is the love of God.

For wisdom, joy, and peace,
And all that's good and right,
There is a counterfeit,
Or else the genuine
That starts with God, and God is the essence.
That can't be found outside of Christ Jesus,
That flows from God and can't be mixed,
With any natural.

Numbers 15:39 b and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

Proverbs 28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walks wisely, he shall be delivered.

Jeremiah 23:16 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walks after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
