Hymn/Song Information

OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY




Let worldly minds the World pursue
It has no charms for me;
Once I admired its trifles too,
But grace has set me free.


Its pleasures now no longer please,
No more content afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these;
Since I have known the Lord.


As by the light of opening day
The stars are all concealed,
So earthly pleasures fade away
When Jesus is revealed.


Creatures no more divide my choice,
I bid them all depart;
His name, and love, and gracious voice
Have fixed my roving heart.


Now, Lord, I would be thine alone,
And wholly live to thee;
But may I hope that thou wilt own
A worthless worm like me?


Yes! Though of sinners I'm the worst,
I can not doubt thy will;
For if thou hadst not loved me first,
I had refused thee still.


---Alternative verses---


Those follies now no longer please,.
No more delight afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these,
Now I have known the Lord.


Now, Lord, I would be thine alone,
And wholly live to thee:
Yet worthless still, myself I own,
Thy worth is all my plea.


Its pleasures now no longer please,
Nor happiness afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these;
Since I have known the Lord.
