Hymn/Song Information

VANITY OF THE WORLD




Unveil thy glories to my view,
And bid me taste thy love;
Be thou, oh Lord, my treasure here,
And fix my thoughts above.


Riches are vain and empty things,
And pleasures soon decay;
Honourís a puff of noisy breath,
And sceptres pass away.


The world how mean, with all its store,
Compared with thee, my Lord;
Its transitory joys how few,
How little they afford.


Ye glittering vanities, begone,
Ye false delights, adieu!
My glorious Lord fills all the space,
And leaves no room for you.
