The World Who Know Not God

The world, who know not God,
Must hate the men that do,
And live by faith in Jesus’ blood,
And Jesus’ tempers show:
And if the sons of night
Usurp the Christian name,
They still abhor the sons of light,
In every age the same.

Their ignorance, we find
The ground of enmity,
That hatred of the carnal mind
Against Thy church and Thee:
But warned by Thee, our Lord,
We suffer all their ill,
Who every day deny Thy Word,
And every day fulfill.
