Hymn/Song Information

SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM




Now let a true ambition rise,
And ardour fire our breast,
To reign in worlds above the skies,
In heavenly glories drest.


Behold Jehovah’s royal hand
A radiant crown display,
Whose gems with vivid lustre shine,
While suns and stars decay.


Away, each grov'ling, anxious care,
Beneath a christian's thought;
Oh, spring to seize immortal joys.
Which your Redeemer bought.


Ye hearts, with youthful vigour warm,
The glorious prize pursue;
Nor shall ye want the goods of earth,
While heaven is kept in view.
