WORLD RENOUNCED




Begone thou vile seducer, go!
Thy charm shall not deceive me so;
Could I in endless riches roll,
These would not ease a wounded soul.


Should glittering robes my flesh adorn,
Were I to crowns and sceptres born;
Yet all the pageantry and state
Would scarce a single grief abate.


Through faith’s perspective now I see.
Earth’s gaudy scenes are vanity;
Now the sole objects of my choice,
Are heavenly wealth and heavenly joys.


To that blessed world above the skies,
My daily, hourly thoughts arise;
And there at length I hope to find,
Treasures that suit th’ immortal mind.
