REFLECTIONS ON DEATH




Learn, oh my soul, what ‘tis to die!
Th’event how solemn, and how nigh;
When every tongue shall silent be,
These eyes no pleasing object see.


The active limbs, the comely face,
Turned to a mass of rottenness;
The name forgot, the substance gone,
No more admired, no longer known.


But thou, my soul, must then remain,
In everlasting joy or pain;
The bliss of heaven with angels share,
Or else be plunged in black despair.


Then be these solemn thoughts impressed,
With power divine on every breast;
And ere another moment pass,
Oh let us seek renewing grace.


Quickly to Jesus may we fly,
And on his righteousness rely;
Lo, our eternal all’s at stake,
Awake, our slumbering souls, awake.
