Hymn/Song Information

WORTH OF A SOUL




Vain world, thy cheating arts give o'er,
Thine offers I despise:
In vain thou spreadst thy tempting store,
To catch my wandering eyes.


Bribe me no more with glittering toys,
To catch my soul away;
Nor seek, by such delusive joys,
To tempt my feet astray.


I cannot part with gold for dross,
Nor solid good for show!
Nor drink your bliss, to mourn my loss
In everlasting woe!


Vain world, thy weak attempts forbear;
I all thy charms defy;
And rate my precious soul too dear,
For all thy wealth to buy.
