VANITY OF THE WORLD




The joy that vain amusements give,
To him who thoughtless sports and sings,
Is like the honey of a hive,
When guarded by a thousand stings.


'Tis thus the world rewards the fools
Who live upon her treach'rous smiles:
She leads them blindfold, by her rules,
And ruins all whom she beguiles.


'Tis thus that thousands hasten down
From pleasure into endless woe;
And with a long despairing groan.
Blaspheme their Maker as they go.


Warn'd by their woes, may we be wise.
Delighting in a Saviour's charms;
Then God will take us to the skies,
Embrac'd in everlasting arms.
