Hymn/Song Information

ADIEU TO THE VAIN WORLD




World, adieu! thou real cheat;
Oft have thy deceitful charms
Fill'd my heart with fond conceit.
Foolish hopes and false alarms;
Now I see as clear as day.
How thy follies pass away.


Vain, thy entertaining sights;
False, thy promises renew'd;
All the pomp of thy delights
Does but flatter and delude:
Thee I quit for heav'n above.
Object of the noblest love.


Let not, Lord, my wand'ring mind
Follow after fleeting toys;
Since in thee alone I find
Solid and substantial joys:
Joys that, never overpast.
Through eternity shall last.
