Hymn/Song Information

In vain the giddy world inquires Forget




In vain the giddy world inquires—
Forgetful of their God—
"Who will supply our vast desires,
Or show us any good?"


Thro' the wide circuit of the earth,
Their eager wishes rove,
In chase of honor, wealth, and mirth.
The phantoms of their love.


But oft these shadowy joys elude
Their most intense pursuit;
Or, if they seize the fancied good,
There's poison in the fruit.


Lord, from this world call off njy love,
Set my affections right;
Bid me aspire to joys above,
And walk no more by sight.
