A higher view

1
Prod me with Your loving hands,
Stir me from my deep impasse.
I long to flee this stagnant rut;
My soul, my prison, deadened lot,
Which end is just to taste Your wrath;
So set me on the narrow path.
Thorns and thistles may line this road
But it leads me to the mutual abode.

Lift me up with Your mighty hand
Above this frenzied earthly land.
Set me on the mount to see
What the world can offer me;
Till I see the vanity from on high
And earthly desires I bid goodbye
And set my eyes on You.

"Set me on the mount to see

What the world can offer me;

Till I see the vanity from on high

And earthly desires I bid goodbye

And set my eyes on You."

Lord I bid goodbye. I set my eyes on You. Set me as a seal on Your arm and as a seal on you heart. My heart and my flesh fail, but You are my portion forever!

Set me on the mount to see

What the world can offer me;

Till I see the vanity from on high

And earthly desires I bid goodbye

And set my eyes on You.

I gain nothing from the world, why I should follow their steps? May I have a pure heart that come to love God and always sacrifice myself to His eternal economy.

Nothing can satisfies us in this world. All things are vanity of all vanities.

It is the same, but in Ukainian:

Любляча рука Твоя

Хай веде мене, бо я

Лишити мушу згубний шлях,

Та дух мертвить душа моя,

Це виллє на мене гнів Твій.

Тож дай мені вузький шлях Свій,

І хоч цей шлях крізь терен іде,

Та в взаємну він оселю нас веде.

Тож міцною рукою Ти

Мене над землею здійми.

Згори подивлюсь, мені

Дати може що цей світ.

Я побачу марноту з вишини,

Бажанням скажу: прощавай, земним

І дивлюсь лиш на Тебе.
