ANOTHER BLASPHEMOUS HYMN BY CHARLES WESLEY AGAINST GOD'S SOVEREIGN REPROBATION
God, ever merciful and just
With newborn babes did Tophet fill;
Down into endless torments thrust;
Merely to show His sovereign will.
This is that ‘Horrible Decree!’
This that wisdom from beneath!
God (O detect the blasphemy)
Hath pleasure in the sinner’s death.
