The devil can self-denial use

Representative Text

"Sinners, among you all, who can
With everlasting burnings dwell?
The wicked shall be cast to hell."

3 Hell is that woeful dreadful place,
Where Jesus never shows his face;
Where sinners damn'd with devils remain,
In hopeless horrors, endless pain!

4 God's wrath without his mercy's there:
Wrath without mercy who can bear?
How hot the fire, how huge the load,
Thy suff'rings show, thou Son of God.

5 O man, let goodness make thee melt;
Consider what the Lord has flet,
Repent, and to thy Saviour turn,
Who burn;d that thou might'st never burn.
