Let worldly minds the world pursue,
It has no charms for me;
Once I admired its trifles, too,
But grace hath set me free.
Free! free! free!
I am from sin set free!
This world has now no charms for me,
For Christ hath set me free.
Its pleasures can no longer please,
Nor happiness afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these,
Now, I have seen the Lord.
As by the light of op’ning day,
The stars are all concealed,
So earthly pleasures fade away,
When Jesus is revealed.
Creatures no more divide my choice,
I bid them all depart;
His name, His love, His gracious voice,
Have fixed my roving heart.
