1. Adieu to earth with all your joy!
Adieu to all below!
Your pleasures all I'd count a toy,
If I might Jesus know.

2. Adieu to all created bliss!
Your greatest friendship too;
Adieu to all but Jesus Christ.
For him I must pursue.

 

3. O give me Christ! for he is all,
My soul for him doth pant;
Let others take this little ball,
No share of it I want.

4. Jesus while here is my delight;
No other joys I'd know;
And when I quit these shades of night,
I shall with Jesus go.
