LyricsEdit

In this world of toil and trouble
Sometimes lonesome, sometimes blue
Yet the hope of life eternal
Brightens all our hopes anew

I don't want to get adjusted to this world, to this world
I don't want to get adjusted to this world
I got a home so much better
I got to go there sooner or later
I don't want to get adjusted to this world

Well this world is sad and weary
There's no place that feels like home
Jesus come my soul to ferry
Where I never more shall roam

I don't want to get adjusted to this world, to this world
I don't want to get adjusted to this world
I got a home so much better
I got to go there sooner or later
I don't want to get adjusted to this world

I am longing for the coming
Of my savior, lord, and king
I can hear my loved one singing
A new song I'd like to sing

I don't want to get adjusted to this world, to this world
I don't want to get adjusted to this world
I got a home so much better
I got to go there sooner or later
I don't want to get adjusted to this world
