FAREWELL TO THE WORLD




Quickly, vain world, begone
And vanish from my eyes!
Thy flattering offers I reject,
Thine utmost rage despise.


Too oft hast thou engaged,
And drawn my heart from God,
Whilst numerous enemies and snares
Beset the path I trod.


In thee I sought for bliss,
But sought, alas, in vain;
The transient mirth and empty joys,
End in remorse and pain.


Away, false world, away
With all thy boasted store
Since I substantial bliss have found,
I seek thy smiles no more.
