Full Text

1 O Christian brethern marvel not!
What if the world hate you;
It is the christians share and lot,
Whilst here on earth below.

2 The world will ever love its ways,
That of unrighteousness!
The carnal mind can ne'er embrace
The ways of life and peace.

3 Those who have pass'd from death to life
Must needs expect to find,
Continual war, and constant strife,
With those of carnal mind.

4 The soul remains with sin defil'd!
Whilst in a carnal state--
And never will be reconciled
To bear the christians fate.

5 Where there is not a living faith,
The mind is not renew'd;
And still remains in sin and death,
And enmity with God.
