326 (P.M.)

Vain, delusive world, adieu,

With all of creature good;

Only Jesus I'll pursue,

Who bought me with His blood;

All thy pleasures I forego;

I trample on thy wealth and pride;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.

Other knowledge I disdain,

'Tis all but vanity;

Christ, the Lamb of God, was slain,

He tasted death for me:

Me to save from endless woe

The sin-atoning Saviour died;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.

Here will I set up my rest —

My fluctuating heart

From the haven of His breast

Shall nevermore depart;

Whither should a sinner go?

His wounds for me stand open wide!

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.

Him to know is life and peace,

And pleasure without end;

All my happiness be this,

On Jesus to depend:

Daily in His grace to grow,

And ever in His faith abide;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.

Oh, that I could all invite,

This saving truth to prove —

Show the length, the breadth, the height,

And depth of Jesus' love!

Fain I would to sinners show

The blood by faith alone applied;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified!
