Hymn/Song Information

I leave the world with willing feet




I leave the world with willing feet,
Great God, to find repose in thee:
Once its enchantments soft and sweet,
Threw silken fetters over me.


Vice pointed to a flow'ry vale,
Where streams of pleasure seemed to roll
And everv sweet, on every gale,
Fress'd thro' the senses to the soul.


Imagination lent her aid
To strengthen ev'ry dang'rous snare;
But soon the flatt'ring vision fled,
And gave its victim to despair.


My youth restor'd from fatal wiles,
Has learn'd temptation's pow'r to fear;
To dread the world's delusive smiles,
And 'scape the fowler's cruel snare.
