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.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CI
