SLEEPER AWAKE




Time is earnest, passing by;
Death is earnest, drawing nigh;
Sinner, wilt thou trifling be?
Time and death appeal to thee.


Life is earnest; when ‘tis o’er,
Thou returnest nevermore;
Soon to meet eternity,
Wilt thou never serious be?


God is earnest; kneel and pray
Ere thy season pass away;
Ere be set His judgment-throne;
Vengeance ready, mercy gone.


Oh, be earnest! Death is near;
Thou wilt perish ling’ring here:
Sleep no longer, rise and flee;
Lo, thy Saviour waits for thee.
