     8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy. 9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent. 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering. 11 In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain. 12 I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD. 13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.(KJV)

1. Let thoughtless thousands choose the road 
That leads the soul away from God; 
This happiness, dear Lord, be mine, 
To live and die entirely Thine. 

2. On Christ, by faith, I fain would live, 
From Him my life, my all, receive, 
To Him devote my fleeting hours, 
Serve Him alone with all my pow’rs. 

3. Christ is my everlasting All; 
To Him I look, on Him I call; 
He will my ev’ry want supply 
In time and thro’ eternity. 

4. Soon will the Lord, my Life, appear; 
Soon shall I end my trials here, 
Leave sin and sorrow, death and pain. 
To live is Christ, to die is gain. 

5. Soon will the saints in glory meet, 
Soon walk through every golden street, 
And sing on every blissful plain: 
To live is Christ, to die is gain.
