Pleasant Hill

C.M.

Baptist Harmony, p. 273

1.

Religion is the chief concern

Of mortals here below:

May I its great importance learn,

Its sovereign virtue know!

2.

More needful this than glittering wealth,

Or aught the world bestows;

Nor reputation, food, or health,

Can give us such repose.

3.

Religion should our thoughts engage

Amidst our youthful bloom;

'Twill fit us for declining age,

And for the awful tomb.

4.

O, may my heart, by grace renew'd

Be my Redeemer's throne;

And be my stubborn will subdued,

His government to own!

5.

Let deep repentance, faith, and love

Be joined with godly fear;

And all my conversation prove

My heart to be sincere.

6.

Preserve me from the snares of sin

Through my remaining days,

And in me let each virtue shine

To my Redeemer's praise.

7.

Let lively hope my soul inspire;

Let warm affections rise;

And may I wait with strong desire

To mount above the skies!
