Hymn/Song Information

CREATED GOOD UNSATISFYING




Let others worldly riches prize,
I scorn this earthly clod;
My portion is above the skies,
My Saviour and my God.


In all that men call good and great,
No pleasure can I find;
A lofty house, or large estate,
Can ne’er content the mind.


Were the Peruvian mountains mine,
With all their hidden store,
Did I in gold and jewels shine,
I still should wish for more.
{v]
Not Croesus’ wealth, nor Caesar’s power,
Were I of both possessed,
Could inward peace and joy restore,
Or ease the troubled breast.


Restless I rove from place to place,
And search from pole to pole,
‘Till Jesus shows his lovely face,
There’s nought can cheer my soul.
