Hymn/Song Information

SIN OF WORLDLY CONFORMITY




How many indulge
Their carnal desires,
Whose cravings exceed
What nature requires:
They make it their study,
The world to obtain,
Or revel in pleasures
Expensive and vain.


Shall Christians be found,
Themselves to degrade,
By sinful excess,
Or empty parade!
Oh let them much rather,
Distribute their store,
Amongst the distressed,
The needy and poor.


Oh let them reflect,
That what they enjoy,
Is treasure but lent,
For them to employ,
In acts of devotion,
Of pity and love,
Till Jesus shall call them,
And sent them above.


Great Author of all,
To thee I resign,
Whate’er I possess,
And call it not mine;
The poor and the wretched,
Thy bounty shall share,
I’ll ease their distresses,
And soften their care.
