RENUNCIATION OF THE WORLD




To thee, my God, O let my soul
Be bound by sacred ties;
On thee be fixed, and day by day
To greater nearness rise.


Be gone vain world with all thy charms,
Nor more disturb my peace;
Enticing pleasure, wealth and power,
Your fruitless efforts cease.


Fly swiftly hence, ye gilded scenes,
Let every sin depart;
The God of heaven asserts his claim
And grace commands my heart.)


---Alternative verses---


For thee, my God, may my whole soul,
Bound by a thousand ties,
Be truly fix’d, and day by day
To greater nearness rise.


Begone vain world with all thy charms,
Nor more disturb my peace;
Ye inward lusts, infernal powers,
Your fruitless efforts cease.


Fly swiftly hence, ye joys of sense,
Let every sin depart;
The God of heaven asserts his claim
And grace commands my heart.
