Representative Text

1 I seek not life’s ease and pleasures,
Earthly riches, pearls, nor gold;
Give to me a heart made happy,
Clean and honest to unfold.

Chorus:
A clean heart o’erflown with goodness,
Fairer than the lilies bright;
A clean heart for ever singing,
Singing thro’ the day and night.

2 If I cherish earthly treasures,
Swift they flee and all is vain;
A clean heart enriched with virtues
Brings to me eternal gain. [Chorus]

3 Morn and evening my petition
Wings its flight to heaven in song;
In the name of my Redeemer,
Make my heart clean, pure, and strong. [Chorus]

Amen.
