1 Oh, tell me no more
Of this world's vain store;
The time for such trifles with me is now o'er.
2 A country I've found
Where true joys abound,
To dwell I'm determined on that happy ground.
3 The souls which believe
In paradise live,
And me in that number will Jesus receive.
4 No longer I stay,
He calls me away:
I follow thee, Saviour, and bless the glad day.
5 And when I'm to die,
Receive me, I'll cry,
For life everlasting for me thou didst buy.
