Valley of Vision: Our Heart's Desire

I hasten towards an hour
     when earthly pursuits and possessions will appear vain,
     when it will be indifferent whether I have been rich or poor,
     successful or disappointed, admired or despised,
But it will be of eternal moment that I have
mourned for sin,
     hungered and thirsted after righteousness,
     loved the Lord Jesus in sincerity,
     gloried in his cross.
May these objects engross my chief solicitude!

From Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions
