Burn'd to the lowest hell--
And in that hopeless world of wo,
He bade my spirit dwell.

While yet 'tis call'd today;
Soon will the awful voice of death
Command your souls away.

4 Soon will the harvest close--
The summer soon be o'er--
And soon, your injur'd, angry God
Will hear your prayers no more.
