Arise and depart, for this is not your rest.
Mich. 2:10.

Bonar.

Go up, go up, my heart,

Dwell with thy God above;

For here thou canst not rest,

Nor here give out thy love.

2 Go up, go up, my heart,

Be not a trifler here;

Ascend above these clouds,

Dwell in a higher sphere.

3 Let not thy love flow out

To things so soiled and dim;

Go up to heaven and God,

Take up thy love to him.

4 Waste not thy precious stores

On creature-love below;

To God that wealth belongs,

On him that wealth bestow.

5 Go up, reluctant heart,

Take up thy rest above;

Arise, earth-clinging thoughts;

Ascend, my lingering love!
