Hymn/Song Information

DILGENCE AND ZEAL




If carnal men for earthly things,
Strive with their heart and hand;
The blessings of the world to come,
A greater zeal demand.


And yet whilst they with all their might,
Those vanities pursue,
How slow the advances which I make,
With heaven itself in view.


Great God, with holy zeal inspire,
My soul with love inflame;
Religion destitute of these,
Is but an empty name.


To gain the top of Zionís hill,
May I with fervour strive;
And all those powers for thee employ,
Which I from thee derive.
