Hymn/Song Information

THE WORLD UNSATISFIED




Pleasures and honours all combined,
Yield no contentment to the mind;
All earthly joy are mixed with pain,
They make our expectations vain


How poor, alas, are things below!
Transient the bliss, but long the woe;
Then flee, my soul, the fatal snare,
Of earth’s delusive charms beware.


Come, Jesus, show thy lovely face,
And lodge me in thy kind embrace;
Then let the world to atoms fall,
Thou art my portion, thou my fall.
