ADMONITIONS TO YOUTH




When youth devote their early days,
To vain delights and sinful ways,
Their prospects darken as they rise,
And fills them with a dread surprise.


Diseases are the fruits of sin,
The malady lies deep within;
An evil course the mind impairs,
And leaves them full of guilt and fears.


Sin strengthens with increasing days,
And grows when nature’s self decays;
Indulged, it makes their fetters strong,
And leads the captive slave along.


Beware, ye thoughtless, now beware,
No more presume to persevere;
To-day with supplications come,
To-morrow death may call you home.


With earnestness for mercy cry,
And God will listen to your sigh;
Now plead for pardon through his Son,
And he’ll forgive what you have done.
