WATCHFULNESS




And does the taper burn so dim,
While death is at the door?
Does endless bliss or woe depend
Upon the present hour?


Iíll trim the lamp, and watch and pray;
And when my time is come,
Ye angels bear me swift away,
To my eternal home.


Be gone, ye tempters of the mind,
Ensnaring world, adieu!
Ye fleshly lusts and vain delights,
Here is no room for you.
