SNARES OF THE WORLD




Quit, my soul, terrestrial things,
Flee the phantoms of a day;
Earthly joys abound with stings,
From the syrens turn away:
To a higher bliss aspire,
Suited to thy large desire.


They who make the world their choice,
Soon will sink beneath the shade;
For a season they rejoice,
Pains and sorrows then invade:
Oh my soul, now be thine,
To pursue a bliss divine.


Flee the dread alluring bait,
Flee the poisoned hook concealed;
Though the world its calls repeat,
Never to the tempter yield:
Seek protection from the Lord,
Who his succour will afford.
