OLD THINGS PASSED AWAY




Let carnal minds the world pursue,
It has no charms for me;
Once, I admired its trifles too,
But grace has set me free.


Its fading charms no longer please,
No more content afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these,
Now I have seen the Lord.


As by the light of op'ning day,
The stars are all conceal'd;
So earthly pleasures fade away,
When Jesus is reveal'd.


Creatures no more divide my choice—
I bid them all depart;
His name, and love, and gracious voice,
Have fix'd my roving heart.


Now, Lord, I would be thine alone.
And wholly live to thee;
But may I hope that thou wilt own
A worthless worm like me!


Yes, though of sinners I'm the worst,
I cannot doubt thy will;
For, if thou hadst not lov'd me first,
I had refused thee still.
