     8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. 9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. 10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. 11 A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. 12 For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. 13 In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession. 14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour’s hand, ye shall not oppress one another: 15 According to the number of years after the jubilee thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee: 16 According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee. 17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God.(KJV)

What Is the World to Me

1. What is the world to me 
With all its vaunted pleasure 
When Thou, and Thou alone, 
Lord Jesus, art my Treasure! 
Thou only, dearest Lord, 
My soul’s Delight shalt be; 
Thou art my Peace, my Rest,- 
What is the world to me! 

2. The would is like a cloud 
And like a vapor fleeting, 
A shadow that declines, 
Swift to its end retreating. 
My Jesus doth abide, 
Though all things fade and flee; 
My everlasting Rock,- 
What is the world to me! 

3. The world seeks to be praised 
And honored by the mighty, 
Yet never once reflects 
That they are frail and flighty. 
But what I truly prize 
Above all things is He, 
My Jesus, He alone,- 
What is the world to me! 

4. The world seeks after wealth 
And all that Mammon offers, 
Yet never is content 
Though gold should fill it coffers. 
I have a higher good, 
Content with it I’ll be: 
My Jesus is my Wealth,- 
What is the world to me! 

5. The world is sorely grieved 
Whenever it is slighted 
Or when its hollow fame 
And honor have been blighted. 
Christ, Thy reproach I bear 
Long as it pleaseth Thee; 
I’m honored by my Lord,- 
What is the world to me! 

6. The world with wanton pride 
Exalts its sinful pleasures 
And for them foolishly 
Gives up the heavenly treasures. 
Let others love the world 
With all its vanity; 
I love the Lord, my God,- 
What is the world to me! 

7. The world abideth not; 
Lo, like a flash ’twill vanish; 
With all it gorgeous pomp 
Pale death it cannot banish; 
Its riches pass away, 
And all its joys must flee; 
But Jesus doth abide,- 
What is the world to me! 

8. What is the world to me! 
My Jesus is my Treasure, 
My Life, my Health, my Wealth, 
My Friend, my Love, my Pleasure, 
My Joy, my Crown, my All, 
My Bliss eternally. 
Once more, then, I declare: 
What is the world to me!
