FORSAKING THE WORLD FOR CHRIST




Vain world, depart hence,
With all your proud store,
Iíve loved you too long,
Will love you no more;
To Jesus the Saviour,
My soul shall aspire,
He is the best portion
That we can desire.


He gives me relief,
From sorrow and pain,
Has rescued from death,
Again and again;
My foes he can vanquish,
And make them retreat,
Their wiles and their projects,
His skill can defeat.


Arise them, my soul,
With cheerfulness sing,
Adore thy blessed Lord,
And hail him as King;
Let thy best affections,
From creatures remove
Ascend to thy Saviour,
And give him thy love.
