Wrong about Wrath

"They mocked the messengers of God… until the wrath of the LORD arose against His people, till there was no remedy" (2 Chronicles 36:15,16).  "Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God… But Thou, O LORD, art a Shield for me; my Glory, and the Lifter up of mine head" (Psalm 3:2,3).  "The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble" (Proverbs 4:19).  "The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God… the cup of His indignation" (Revelation 14:10). 

How loudly have the mockers mocked
The Word of God so callously   
As in their blindness they have walked
Until there was no remedy. 

There is no help from God, they say,
As they dismiss His saving grace,
But wrath is coming anyway,
And they shall find no hiding place. 

Their way is as a darkened path
Wherein they fearfully shall stumble
Unless they turn to flee from wrath
To Christ, the Shield of the humble.  

O Lord, it won't be very long
Till mockers see Your indignation,
And they shall know that they were wrong
About Your wrath and Your salvation.
