Shall men pretend to pleasure,
Who never knew the Lord?
Can all the worldlings treasure
True peace of mind afford?
They may obtain this jewel
In what their hearts desire,
When they, by adding fuel,
Can quench this flame of fire.

Our pleasure and our duty,
Tho’ opposite before
Since we have seen his beauty,
Are joined to part no more:
It is our highest pleasure,
No less than duty’s call;
To love him beyond measure,
And serve him with our all.

Recordings 1, 2
