Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: The Southern Harmony, and Musical Companion (New ed. thoroughly rev. and much enl.) #128 (1854) Meter: 184.108.40.206 Lyrics:
My soul forsakes her vain delight,
And bids the world farewell,
Base as the dirt beneath thy feet,
And mischievous as hell.
No longer will I ask your love,
Nor seek your friendship more;
The happiness that I approve,
Is not within your power.

My soul forsakes her vain delight
