DELIGHTING IN GOD




Be gone, ye glittering vanities,
You nothing are to me;
To thee my best affections rise,
Are fixed, oh God, on thee.


Honourís an empty breath of wind,
And golf a splendid toy;
Could I possess the world, thy smiles
Would give me greater joy.


If I could call the Indies mine,
I still should long for more;
And destitute of grace divine,
Be miserably poor.


Whilst transitory pleasures yield
Content to carnal minds,
My soul, dear Lord, to thee ascends,
In thee a heaven it finds.
