Description

Intended as more of a Christian Harmony style tune.

Text

Tell me no more of earthly toys,
Of sinful mirth and carnal joys,
The things I lov'd before:
Let me but view my Saviour's face,
And feel his animating grace,
And I desire no more.

Tell me no more of praise and wealth,
Of careless ease and blooming health,
For they have all their snares:
Let me but know my sins forgiven,
And see my name enrolled in heaven,
And I am free from cares.
