11691. By Willful Sin The Man Who Wrongs

1 By willful sin the man who wrongs
Himself, his neighbor, or His God,
To Satan, not to Christ belongs;
He knows not that atoning blood,
Nor sees the great Invisible,
But sleeps within the mouth of hell.

2 The man by faith who truly lives,
And strives his faithfulness t’approve,
Employs the talents he receives
In all the toils of humble love,
May cry with confidence divine,
"I am my God’s, and He is mine!"
