I Think as a Man1. Oh God, Your ways are higher far
    Than all the faulty ways of man;
Creator of sun, moon, and star,
    And Author of salvation’s plan.

2. We thought You were like heathen gods,
    Or like a childish potentate;
Who struck in anger or destroyed
    At will, the beings You create.

3. But You have taught us, now we know
    A God of love who changes not;
The laws You gave to men below
    Are all expressions of Your thought.

4. We shall not kill, because you don’t;
    We serve not a destroying god;
Your law is in our hearts, we won’t
    Destroy in word, or act, or thought.

5. It’s sin, and only sin, that kills;
    The wages that it pays are death;
But in Your Son, eternal life,
    For all His ways are righteousness.

Like the song Satan the Destroyer, God the Restorer, this one is also on the theme of God’s character.

The booklet I Think as a Man is a brief introduction to this theme, and you can download it by clicking on the book cover picture to the right of the song text.

For a more comprehensive treatment of the theme, there is another book available: Behold Your God.
