"My Goal Is Christ"





Ah, tell me not of gold or treasure,
Of pomp and beauty here on earth!
There's not a thing that gives me pleasure,
Of all this world displays for worth.

Each heart will seek and love its own;
My goal is Christ and Christ alone,
My goal is Christ and Christ alone.

The world and her pursuits will perish;
Her beauty's fading like a flower;
The brightest schemes the earth can cherish
Are but the pastime of an hour.

Each heart will seek and love its own;
My goal is Christ and Christ alone,
My goal is Christ and Christ alone.

Against this tower there's no prevailing;
His Kingdom passes not away;
His Throne abides, despite assailing,
From henceforth unto endless day.

Each heart will seek and love its own;
My goal is Christ and Christ alone,
My goal is Christ and Christ alone.

And though a pilgrim I must wander,
Still absent from the One I love,
He soon will have me with Him yonder
In His own glory-realms above.

Triumphantly I therefore own,
My goal is Christ and Christ alone,
My goal is Christ and Christ alone.

A Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

Phippians 1:21 
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

The above poem is a classic hymn-- not really sung anymore in
the churches. Unfortunately, many within the modern churches of
today, seek to amass wealth and popularity. They have lost their First
Love-- the Lord Jesus Christ. They are seeking "their own."
Their goal is not Christ and Him alone. Oh how this hymn's theme
should be taught in the churches-- Jesus Christ should be ever
before our hearts. He alone should be the One in Whom we
are occupied. May we look to Him and Him alone!

Hebrews 12:2 
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand
of the throne of God.
