Go up, go up, my heart,
Dwell with thy God above;
For here thou canst not rest,
Nor here give out thy love.

Go up, go up, my heart!
Be not a trifler here;
Ascend above these clouds,
Dwell in a higher sphere.

Let not thy love flow out
To things so soiled and dim;
Go up to Heav’n and God;
Take up thy love to Him.

Waste not thy precious stores
On pleasure here below:
To God that wealth belongs;
On Him that wealth bestow.

Go up, reluctant heart!
Take up thy rest above;
Arise, earth-clinging thoughts;
Ascend, my lingering love!
