Treasure Island

Charles Wesley

(18 December 1707 – 29 March 1788 / Epworth, England)

Hymn XI: God, the Offended God Most High


God, the offended God most high,
Ambassadors to rebels sends;
His messengers his place supply,
And Jesus begs us to be friends.

Us, in the stead of Christ, they pray,
Us, in the stead of God, intreat,
To cast our arms, our sins, away,
And find forgiveness at his feet.

Our God in Christ! thine embassy,
And proffered mercy, we embrace;
And gladly reconciled to thee,
Thy condescending goodness praise.

Poor debtors, by our Lord's request
A full acquittance we receive!
And criminals, with pardon blest,
We, at our Judge's instance, live!

The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
