Track Name: Wand'ring Pilgrim (from "The Life of David Brainerd")
Farewell, vain world; my soul bids you adieu;

My Savior’s taught me to abandon you.

Your charms may satisfy a darkened mind,

But not a soul wholly for God designed.

Stop your enticing; cease my soul to call:

‘Tis fixed, through grace; my God shall be my all.

While He thus lets me heavenly glories view,

Your beauties fade; my heart’s no room for you.

Lord, I’m a wand’ring pilgrim,
Till my wand’ring days are done;
Yes, I’m a wand’ring pilgrim here alone,
This world is not my home.

Grant me to see, O Comfort from above,
My Savior, Jesus, my soul’s only love!

May His sweet face ne’er from my sight depart,

His holiness wholly possess my heart.

Lord, I’m a wand’ring pilgrim here alone.

I pine while absent from my dearest One.
No lasting comfort can this earth afford;

My very soul belongs with you, my Lord.
