Hymn/Song Information

TIME IMPROVED




Let us employ our active powers,
Ere youthful vigour’s past;
The present time alone is ours,
This day may be our last.


The hour of death is hastening on,
There’s but a step between;
The work which must so soon be done,
‘Tis time that we begin.


The prince of darkness labours still,
And hurls his darts abroad;
Shall we not then with stedfast zeal,
As active be for God?


Awake, awake, my drowsy soul,
With might thy work pursue;
‘Tis strange that thou shouldst be so dull,
Who hast so much to do.
