Hymn/Song Information

CHOOSING A COMPANION




My soul forsakes the place,
Where sinners mingle joys,
Their friendship yields no solid peace,
Their conversation cloys.


I shun the proud and vain,
How great soe’er they seem:
Nor shall the sinner e’er obtain,
A place in my esteem.


A thousand arts they try,
But spread in vain their snare;
Still I disdain the impious tie,
Which brings a traitor near.


Ye sinful race, depart,
My God forbids the banns;
That friendship only rules the heart,
Where grace unites the hands.
