LONGING FOR HEAVEN




Farewell earth, with your vain pleasures,
Now I bid you all adieu;
Nought below I find substantial,
Nothing I expect from you:
|: Your bestowments :|
Sink and lessen in my view.


Quite uncertain are your riches,
Honourís but a puff of wind;
All your gifts and boasted treasures,
Cannot fill the empty mind;
|: Though you promise :|
Few performances I find.


I pursue a bliss much higher,
Far above yon azure skies;
Thither I with ardent wishes,
Often lift my eager eyes;
|: Thereís the treasure, :|
And the bliss that never dies.


Come then death, and stay no longer,
Gently snatch my soul away;
Then to worlds of light and glory,
I shall haste without delay:
|: Ply to Jesus, :|
And enjoy eternal day.
