Congregation of the Cursed

"Gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field, for...  the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die... And he that regarded not the Word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field" (Exodus 9:19-21).  "Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous" (Psalm 1:5).  "The curse causeless shall not come" (Proverbs 26:2).  "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law" (Galatians 3:13). 

The congregation of the cursed
Still mocks God's Word without regard
To fearful warnings of the worst
That judgment holds for hearts so hard. 

How fearful is this introduction
To those who yet continue scorning
Without regard to the destruction
That waits for those who spurn God's warning! 

By all means, God is saving some
Who from His wrath will turn and flee. 
The curse that's causeless shall not come
To those in Christ eternally! 

O Lord, we've seen this congregation,
For this is where we all begin,  
But You were cursed for our salvation
And saved us when You entered in!
