Full Text

1 I’ve turned my back upon the world,
With all its empty pleasures,
And set my heart on better things,
On higher, holier treasures.

Refrain:
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
I’ve left the world behind me!
I’ve crossed the separating line,
And left the world behind me!

2 I left my former life of sin,
Its follies all forsaken;
I stand complete in Jesus Christ,
His holy vows have taken. [Refrain]

3 I never will turn back again
To worldliness; no, never!
I’ve found a better way than that,
It’s Jesus now and ever! [Refrain]

4 So on I’ll press, in Jesus’ name,
To gain a home in heaven;
And then I’ll sing forevermore,
I’ve left the world forever! [Refrain]
