A divine, romantic story

1
There is a great mystery,
A wonderful story;
For ages ’twas hidden,
Now shown in His wisdom;
’Tis a divine romance
Of God and man in time;
Beyond understanding,
Yet seen in God’s speaking.
  God fell in love with man;
For only God’s love can
Make man just the same as He
In life and in nature.
We are His expression,
His bride, His enlargement;
Forever, together,
As living, insep’rable as one couple
Eternally.
2
Though He was rejected
By men who were blinded;
His love is constraining,
His heart still unchanging;
Thus in incarnation
Came He as salvation;
His name is called Jesus,
And He came to seek us.
3
Though born as a sinner,
His blood has redeemed me.
He suffered on Calv’ry,
Then raised up in glory,
To regenerate me.
Now joined in one spirit
I love to enjoy Him,
For I’ve been forgiven!
4
His love is so tender,
To Him I’ll surrender;
His name is so precious,
I gladly call, “Jesus!”
His Person’s so charming,
My heart ever winning;
I’ll hold back no longer,
I’ll love Him forever.

A translated Chinese version:

一个神圣、罗曼蒂克的故事

1. 一个伟大奥秘,

一则奇妙故事;

历世历代隐藏,

启示于祂智慧;

这(是)神圣罗曼史,

神人各按其时;

超乎所思所想,

显现于(亲见于)真神言语。

真神深爱世人——

惟有真神的爱,

使人有祂样式,

(共)同生命(共)同性情。

我们是祂表彰,

祂新妇、祂扩展;、

永远形影不离(成双成对),

如夫妻合而为一,

永不分离。

2. 纵使遭人弃绝,

瞎眼人拒绝祂;

祂爱宽容忍耐,

祂心坚定不变;

于是道成肉身,

降世成为拯救(降世为拯救人);

祂取名为“耶稣”,

祂屈尊寻求我们。

3. 纵然诞生为罪身,

祂宝血救赎我。

在各各他(受苦)受难,

在荣耀中被提(提升)。

为着使我重生,

如今结合成一灵,

我爱慕享受祂,

因我罪得赦免!

4. 祂爱如此温柔,

我要向祂降服;

祂名如此宝贵,

我欢喜叫:“耶稣!”

祂品格何等迷人,

不住(永远)夺取我心,

我不再保留自己,

我要永远爱祂。

We thank Him, love Him, serve Him, worship Him, praise Him and glorify Him forever!

"His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence, by which He has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire." 2 Peter 1:3-4
