Thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.@Revelation 2:6

Howe’er the Nicolaitans claim
Our God for theirs with lips impure,
And boast thro’ faith in Jesu’s name
Their pardon and salvation sure,
Vain boasters who with sin comply,
Their actions give their lips the lie.

No lot or part with us have they
Who slight the Father and the Son,
Demonstrate, while they disobey,
That God they never yet have known,
Or washed from their old sins in vain,
Have to their vomit turned again.
