The Wrong thus Wrought

"For whoso findeth Me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord.  But he that sinneth against Me wrongeth his own soul:  all they that hate Me love death" (Proverbs 8:35,36).

How vast the riches are we find
Of wisdom in the Savior!
His life, His love, and peace of mind
Surround us with His favor!

How great the wrong is which is wrought
By those who will not choose
The Lord who loved them and who bought
The favor they refuse!

This spiritual insanity,
This self-inflicted wrong,
Shall vex their souls eternally
Through endless ages long!

We pray that sinners turn to God
Without procrastination;
We plead with them to not defraud
Their souls of God's salvation.

How great the contrast is between
The souls who trust the Lord
And those who mock the truth they've seen,
Thus willfully ignored.

Lord, thank You for the favor shown
To all who trust in You,   
And for the evidence made known 
That proves Your Word is true.
