FORSAKING ALL FOR CHRIST




Yes, Lord, we would forsake our all,
Obedient to thy heavenly call;
Renounce the world’s attractive charms,
And fly to thine inviting arms.


Wealth, honour, pleasure, all shall go,
If thou command it to be so;
These fading scenes we’ll bid adieu,
having a nobler prize in view.


In thee alone we place our trust,
The wise, the good, the ever just;
And thine for ever would we be,
Nor suffer aught to rival there.


Thou art the Shepherd, we the sheep,
And near thy side we still would keep;
Do thou protect along the road,
Till we shall reach thy blessed abode.
