And not in dancing to the pleasures of the world.
My praises must be given to my God,
And not to the demons of this world.
My songs must be sung to the Sovereign Lord,
And not to the beat of the drum of this world.
My hands must be given in service to the Father,
And not for earning merit badges from this world.
My treasures must be hidden in my Father's house,
And not left to glitter, tempt, entice, or rust in this world.
My joy, my hope, and my love belongs to the Son
Who died that I might possess it all.
