O tell me no more of this world’s vain store,
The time for such trifles with me now is o’er.
A country I’ve found, where true joys abound,
To dwell I’m determined on that happy ground.
Send a blessing just now.
No mortal will know what Christ doth bestow,
What life, strength, and comfort do after Him go;
Lo! onward I move to see Christ above,
None guesses how wondrous my journey will prove.
