I’ve turned my back upon the world
With all its idle pleasures,
And set my heart on better things,
On higher, holier treasures;
No more its glitter and its glare,
And vanity shall blind me;
I’ve crossed the separating line,
And left the world behind me.
Far, far behind me!
Far, far behind me!
I’ve crossed the separating line,
And left the world behind me.

2
I’ve left the old sad life of sin,
Its follies all forsaken;
My standing place is now in Christ,
His holy vows I’ve taken;
Beneath the standard of the cross
The world henceforth shall find me;
I’ve passed in Christ from death to life,
And left the world behind me.
Far, far behind me!
Far, far behind me!
I’ve passed in Christ from death to life,
And left the world behind me.
3
My soul shall ne’er return again
Back to its former station
For here alone is perfect peace,
And rest from condemnation;
I’ve made exchange of masters now,
The vows of glory bind me,
And once for all I’ve left the world,
Yes, left the world behind me.
Far, far behind me!
Far, far behind me!
And once for all I’ve left the world,
Yes, left the world behind me.
4
My choice is made forevermore,
I want no other Savior;
I ask no purer happiness
Than His sweet love and favor;
My heart is fixed on Jesus Christ,
No more the world shall blind me;
I’ve crossed the Red Sea of His death,
And left the world behind me.
Far, far behind me!
Far, far behind me!
I’ve crossed the Red Sea of His death,
And left the world behind me.

Drink! A river pure and clear that’s flowing from the throne;
Eat! The tree of life with fruits abundant, richly grown;
Look! No need of lamp nor sun nor moon to keep it bright, for
Here there is no night!

Do come, oh, do come,
Says Spirit and the Bride:
Do come, oh, do come,
Let him that heareth, cry.
Do come, oh, do come,
Let him who thirsts and will
Take freely the water of life!

2
Christ, our river, Christ, our water, springing from within;
Christ, our tree, and Christ, the fruits, to be enjoyed therein,
Christ, our day, and Christ, our light, and Christ, our morningstar:
Christ, our everything!
3
We are washing all our robes the tree of life to eat;
“O Lord, Amen, Hallelujah!”—Jesus is so sweet!
We our spirits exercise, and thus experience Christ.
What a Christ have we!
4
Now we have a home so bright that outshines the sun,
Where the brothers all unite and truly are one.
Jesus gets us all together, Him we now display
In the local church.

He’s the Father! Wonderful!

He’s the mighty flowing river.
He waters me in a desert land.
He’s my hiding place; He is our man.
He’s the river! Wonderful!
3
What He is: He’s the vine tree.
He’s the branch, the root of Jesse.
He’s the tree of life: we have the right
To eat of Him and have His life.
He’s the vine tree! Wonderful!
4
What He is: He’s the Shepherd.
He’s the lamb of God, the he-goat.
We rest and feed in the pasture land.
We strike the blood and eat the lamb.
He’s the Shepherd! Wonderful!

What He is: He’s the Spirit.
He’s the all-inclusive Spirit.
He’s our everything; He’s our all in all.

What He is: He’s a Person.
He’s a real and living Person.
He is living now inside of us.
This Person is so glorious.
He’s a Person! Wonderful!
7
What He is: He’s the Body;
He’s the fulness of the Godhead;
He’s the center of the Father’s plan,
Christ and the church, the one new man.
He is wonderful, wonderful.
He is wonderful, wonderful.
He is wonderful, wonderful.

Father God, Thou art the source of life.
We, Thy sons, are Thine expression;
In Thy name, our dear possession.
Father God, Thou art the source of life.
In Thy life, in Thy life,
We have oneness in Thy life.
In Thy life, in Thy life,
In Thy life, O Father, we are one.

2
How we thank Thee that Thy holy Word
With Thy nature, saturates us;
From the world it separates us.
Thank Thee, Father, for Thy holy Word.
Through Thy Word, through Thy Word,
We have oneness through Thy Word.
Through Thy Word, through Thy Word,
Through Thy holy Word we’re all made one.

Oh, the glory of the Triune God!
We’re His sons, oh, what a blessing!
We His glory are expressing—
Oh, the glory of the Triune God!
In Thy glory, in Thy glory,
In Thy glory we are one.
In Thy glory, in Thy glory,
In Thy glory we are all made one!
