11159. The World, Who Know Not God

1 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.

2 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.
