Whither Shall I Go?

Whither should I, Jesus, go

Published in 2 hymnals

Full Text

1 Whither should I, Jesus go?
Whither from my Lord depart?
Can the world's vain glittering show,
Tear me from my Saviour's heart?

2 Joy, and peace, and love, alone,
In my Jesus can be found;
'Twas his last expiring groan,
To his love the rebel bound.

3 Whither from eternal life,
Should my wakened soul remove?
Carnal pleasures wage a strife,
But they're all subdued by love.

4 May I in they arms abide,
Jesus, Sun of Righteousness;
Never may I turn aside,
From the path of blessedness.

5 Hence insidious world, no more
Shall you charm me with your wiles;
Jesus, let me gain that shore,
Ever blessed with thy smiles.

6 There in endless joy to sing,
Jesu's all prevailing grace;
In the presence of my King,
May I find a happy place.

Hymns and Spiritual Songs for the use of Christians, 1803
