lyrics

Let worldly minds the world pursue, what are its charms to me?
Once I admired its trifles too, but grace has set me free
Its pleasures now no longer please, no more content afford
Far from my heart be joys like these now I have seen the Lord

Chorus:
Oh oh oh-oh oh, oh oh oh-oh oh oh
Oh oh oh-oh oh, oh oh oh-oh oh oh

As by the light of opening day the stars are all concealed
So earthly pleasures fade away when Jesus is revealed Creatures no more divide my choice, I bid you all depart
His name and love and gracious Word have fixed my roving heart

Oh oh oh-oh oh, oh oh oh-oh oh oh
(I have seen the Lord, I have seen the Lord)
Oh oh oh-oh oh, oh oh oh-oh oh oh Oh oh oh-oh oh, oh oh oh-oh oh oh
(I have seen the Lord, I have seen the Lord)
