IMPROVEMENT OF TIME




Life is the only time for man,
To seek the Lord and wisdom gain;
The Spirit and the word invite,
To make this duty our delight.


The present time, and that alone,
Is all that we can call our own;
Nor can the art of man ensure
Another year, another hour.


Then let us knock at mercy’s gate,
And pardon seek, ere‘tis too late;
The work of life can ne’er be done,
When health and strength and breath are gone.


Whate’er our hands shall find to do,
To-day may we with zeal pursue;
Seize the swift moments as they fly,
And live as we would wish to die.
