762. Time Enough

1 Time enough, the sluggard cries,
He thinks the season’s slow;
Yet time enough, he hopes, and dies,
And sinks to endless woe.

Refrain:
Sinful man, thy days are few,
Sinful man, thy days are few;
Swiftly the years decline:
Time will never wait for you,
Only now is thine.

2 Time enough, the fool exclaims,
And mocks his awful doom;
Then cries, when bound in icy chains,
“Oh, must I go so soon?” [Refrain]

3 Time enough, the sleeper dreams,
While death is standing by;
Soon lost amid eternal scenes,
He wakes to Satan’s lie. [Refrain]

4 Time enough, oh, cursed spell!
Sing not that siren song,
Ye mortals on the brink of hell,
Where time is endless long. [Refrain]
