1 Weaned from this earth I fain would be,
Of sin, of self, of all but Thee;
Reserved for Christ who bled and died,
Surrendered to the Crucified.
2 Securely hid from sin and strife,
The lust, the pomp, the pride of life;
Prepared for heaven; my noblest care
To have my conversation there.
3 Nothing save Jesus would I know;
My friend, and my companion, thou;
Constrain my soul thy sway to own;
Self-will, self-righteousness dethrone.Source: The Seventh-Day Adventist Hymn and Tune Book: for use in divine worship #632
