816. I Am from Sin Set Free

1 Let worldly minds the world pursue,
It has no charms for me;
Once I admired its trifles, too,
But grace hath set me free.

Refrain:
Free! free! free!
I am from sin set free!
This world has now no charms for me,
For Christ hath set me free.

2 Its pleasures can no longer please,
Nor happiness afford;
Far from my heart be joys like these,
Now, I have seen the Lord. [Refrain]

3 As by the light of op’ning day,
The stars are all concealed;
So earthly pleasures fade away,
When Jesus is revealed. [Refrain]

4 Creatures no more divide my choice,
I bid them all depart;
His name, His love, His gracious voice,
Have fixed my roving heart. [Refrain]
