LABOURS OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE




Rise from the dust, my drowsy soul,
Awake and live for God;
Lo, boundless seas of pleasure roll,
Around his blessed abode.


Arise and seize the starry crown,
Nor groveling lie below;
Exertion leads to high renown,
But sloth to endless woe.


Dangerous and steep is the ascent,
To Zionís lofty hill;
Nor can the soul thatís negligent,
The arduous task fulfil.


The will divine must all be done,
A thousand lusts destroyed;
Thíimmortal prize must first be won,
Ere it can be enjoyed.


Dear Lord, my feeble powers revive,
Nor let me move so slow,
Since Iíve so little time to live,
And so much work to do.
