Our few revolving years How swift they glide away




My few revolving years,
How swift they glide away!
How short the term of life appears,
When past —but as a day!—


A dark and cloudy day,
Made up of grief and sin;
A host of enemies without,
Of guilty fears within.


Lord, through another year
If thou permit my stay,
With diligence may I pursue
The true and living way!

Our few revolving years,
How swift they glide away!
How short the term of life appears,
When past —but as a day!—


A dark and cloudy day,
Clouded by grief and sin;
A host of enemies without,
Distressing fears within.


Lord, through another year
If thou permit our stay,
With diligence may we pursue
The true and living way!


Lord, through another year,
If thou permit my stay,
With watchful care may I pursue
The true and living way.
