The Wrath of God!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

The wrath of God from heaven’s revealed,
In town in village and open field;
The fells and lakes most every spot,
In God’s displeasure severely caught.

Rain from heaven a deluge that rent,
People in sin towards hell that are bent;
Roads and bridges, foundations in ruin,
A path to damnation with sinners strewn.

In tones so sweet as Dale could raise,
Presenting Jesus such astonishing grace!
In love the sins of Sodom to prevent,
Calling, calling sinners to repent.

But what a din such a solemn voice,
Sodom’s sinners just wouldn’t rejoice;
With stiffened necks it was to no avail,
The Stasi came and took him to jail.

The wrath of God from heaven’s revealed,
In town in village and open field;
The fells and lakes most every spot,
In God’s displeasure severely caught.

Before He destroys He sends a delusion,
Midst those that live with a sinless illusion;
Those whom the gospel will not make glad,
It certainly will in the end make mad.

‘Twas one such flew o’er the cuckoo’s nest,
A tormented Bird to shoot all the rest;
Innocent victims? Nay! No such thing,
To judgment Jehovah won’t any such bring.

Death and destruction the furious wrath,
Is always sin’s terrible aftermath;
It reveals to us all his awful displeasure,
When sin’s reached its fullest measure.

Cumberland’s fells with it’s lakes and lands,
Worst of sinners throughout our land?
Nay, but continue in sin and evil to relish,
You too like them will most certainly perish.

(James R Hamilton, Thursday, 3rd, June, 2010)

Footnote: I wrote this at the time when Cumbria was being battered by the elements, following which an evangelist Dale McAlpine was arrested for telling a policeman that homosexuality was a sin. Shortly after this a man by the name of Bird went on a shotgun rampage killing a number of people.
