1 Time enough, the sluggard cries,
He thinks the season’s slow;

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]
